Prometheus exporter

What is Prometheus exporter?

The Prometheus exporter is a service that offers OpenSearch index metrics to clients. It provides secure access to user-specific metrics for authenticated users. 

How does it work?

You configure your Prometheus target, providing the Prometheus exporter endpoint and your Logging credentials using HTTPS Basic Authentication. To get the URL endpoint for your region, open the Prometheus exporter endpoint tab and copy the API link.

How does it work

For example, the Prometheus target configuration for Luxembourg would look like this:

- job_name: 'your_awesome_job' scrape_interval: 5m scrape_timeout: 30s scheme: https static_configs: - targets: ['laas-exporter.k1.luxembourg-1.cloud.gcore.com'] metrics_path: "/v1/opensearch/indices/metrics" basic_auth: username: 'yourLaasUsername' password: 'yourLaasPassword'

The Prometheus exporter endpoint for your region in specified in your control panel. 

Understand the key metrics
