Getting Started

The Prometheus exporter only works with metrics captured from metric plugins. In the following example, host metrics are captured by the node exporter metrics plugin and then are routed to prometheus exporter. Within the output plugin two labels are added app="fluent-bit"and color="blue"

# Node Exporter Metrics + Prometheus Exporter
# -------------------------------------------
# The following example collect host metrics on Linux and expose
# them through a Prometheus HTTP end-point.
# After starting the service try it with:
# $ curl
    flush           1
    log_level       info

    name            node_exporter_metrics
    tag             node_metrics
    scrape_interval 2

    name            prometheus_exporter
    match           node_metrics
    port            2021
    # add user-defined labels
    add_label       app fluent-bit
    add_label       color blue
