Prometheus Prometheus

Last Updated: Jul. 09, 2023

Prometheus is currently the leading tool for metric collection, it’s easy to integrate and easy to use.

Still, short-term retention is a big struggle faced by Prometheus users.

Coralogix helps you overcome this struggle by providing you a way to automatically ship your metrics into your Coralogix account and store them long-term without making complex changes to your Prometheus architecture.

Enjoy our new APM features when using OpenTelemetry collector with a Kubernetes processor and Prometheus.

Send Prometheus Metrics to Coralogix

In order to send metrics to Coralogix, select a Prometheus RemoteWrite endpoint URL for the domain associated with your Coralogix account.

Using a YAML File

Under root level add remote_write using the following format:

remote_write:
- url: <endpoint>
  name: '<customer_name>'
  remote_timeout: 120s
  bearer_token: '<Send_Your_Data_API_key>'

Using Prometheus Operator

Prometheus Operator provides Kubernetes native deployment.

You can add remoteWrite in the following format (note the camel case):

remoteWrite:
    url: <endpoint>
    name: '<customer_name>'
    remoteTimeout: 120s
    bearerToken: '<Send_Your_Data_API_key>'

Note:

  • The Prometheus operator must be in v0.59.0 at least in order to support the agent mode.

Guidelines & Parameters

  • url: query params that send metric information to Coralogix. These params contain appLabelName, subSystemLabelName and severityLabelName. The parameters you should provide are the keys you choose to send to Coralogix, they are mapped to metric labels.
  • name: The name of the time series. This attribute was added after Prometheus v2.15.0. If added before, it will produce an error.
  • remoteTimeout: Timeout for requests to the remote write endpoint.
  • bearerToken: Input your Coralogix Send-Your-Data API key.
  • Severities values that are valid in Coralogix are as follows: debug, verbose, info, warning, error, and critical. The default severity when leaving severityLabelName empty is info.

Server Responses

The following is a list of possible server responses.

  • HTTP 200: The protobuf file is valid and contains Prometheus Metadata.
  • HTTP 201: The protobuf file is valid and processed by Coralogix.
  • HTTP 204: The protobuf file is valid, but the Prometheus.WriteRequest is empty.
  • HTTP 400: The REST API request itself was malformed. Check the query params.
  • HTTP 401: The customer is unauthorized. Verify your private key.
