Metrics data reporting

Reference Samples: dubbo-go-samples/metrics

1. Data reporting configuration

When the metrics: field is not specified, the pull mode prometheus data reporting is enabled by default, the default port is 9090, and the monitoring path defaults to /metrics. You can customize it by referring to the server configuration example below.

    version: 3.0.0-rc3 # version number
    enable: true # default is true
    path: /custom-metrics-path # default is /metrics
    port: 9091 # default is 9090
    namespace: dubbo # default is dubbo as the prefix for data reporting metrics
      protocol: zookeeper
      address: localhost:2181
      name: tri
      port: 20000
        group: dubbo-go # belongs to the group, need to be consistent with the client
        interface: com.apache.dubbo.HelloService # interface name

2. Default data reporting indicators

After starting the above server locally, you can collect default data metrics at localhost:9091/custom-metrics-path, including gc, goroutine number, memory usage, etc.

3. Call indicator RT

Start the client in the example. After several calls, you will find that the corresponding data indicators have been added, prefixed with the default namespace dubbo.

# HELP dubbo_provider_service_rt
# TYPE dubbo_provider_service_rt gauge
dubbo_provider_service_rt{group="dubbo-go", method="SayHello", service="com.apache.dubbo.HelloService", timeout="", version="3.0.0-rc3"} 127542

You can see the request rt time corresponding to the interface name and method name. This part of the calling indicators is to be improved later.

4. Manual data reporting

The API can be called in the business code for manual data reporting. Supports Counter, Summary, Gauge types, and supports multiple labels. It can be collected after reporting.

import ""

for {
// metrics refresh per second
time. Sleep(time. Second)
prometheus.IncSummary("test_summary", rand.Float64())
prometheus.IncSummaryWithLabel("test_summary_with_label", rand.Float64(), map[string]string{
"summarylabel1": "value1", // label and value for this summary
"summarylabel2": "value2",

prometheus. IncCounter("test_counter")
prometheus.IncCounterWithLabel("test_counter_with_label", map[string]string{
"counterlabel1": "value1", // label and value for this counter
"counterlabel2": "value2",

prometheus. SetGauge("test_gauge", rand. Float64())
prometheus.SetGaugeWithLabel("test_gauge_with_label", rand.Float64(), map[string]string{
"gaugelabel1": "value1",
"gaugelabel2": "value2",

After running for a period of time, the following user-defined indicators can be collected

# HELP dubbo_test_counter
# TYPE dubbo_test_counter counter
dubbo_test_counter 463
# HELP dubbo_test_counter_with_label
