Prometheus Scrape Metrics
Fluent Bit 1.9 includes additional metrics features to allow you to collect both logs and metrics with the same collector.
The initial release of the Prometheus Scrape metric allows you to collect metrics from a Prometheus-based endpoint at a set interval. These metrics can be routed to metric supported endpoints such as Prometheus Exporter, InfluxDB, or Prometheus Remote Write

Configuration

Key
Description
Default
host
The host of the prometheus metric endpoint that you want to scrape
port
The port of the promethes metric endpoint that you want to scrape
scrape_interval
The interval to scrape metrics
10s
metrics_path
The metrics URI endpoint, that must start with a forward slash. Note: Parameters can also be added to the path by using ?
/metrics

Example

If an endpoint exposes Prometheus Metrics we can specify the configuration to scrape and then output the metrics. In the following example, we retrieve metrics from the HashiCorp Vault application.
[INPUT]
name prometheus_scrape
host 0.0.0.0
port 8201
tag vault
metrics_path /v1/sys/metrics?format=prometheus
scrape_interval 10s
[OUTPUT]
name stdout
match *
