Prometheus Pushgateway Handler

Table of Contents


Push Sensu Go event metrics to a Prometheus Pushgateway. The
Pushgateway can then be scraped by Prometheus. This handler allows
users to collect metrics via several means, including 20 year old
Nagios plugins with perfdata, and store them in Prometheus.

This handler plugin writes Sensu Go event metrics to the Prometheus
. The plugin
uses the Golang Prometheus client to format and push the
metrics to a configured job (configured via a plugin CLI
argument). Metrics are expected to already have an instance
label. Prometheus must have honor_labels: true in the scrape config
for the Pushgateway.


Usage examples

sensu-prometheus-pushgateway-handler -u -j node


Asset registration

Sensu Assets are the best way to make use of this plugin. If you're not using an asset, please
consider doing so! If you're using sensuctl 5.13 with Sensu Backend 5.13 or later, you can use the
following command to add the asset:

sensuctl asset add portertech/sensu-prometheus-pushgateway-handler

If you're using an earlier version of sensuctl, you can find the asset on the [Bonsai Asset Index][].

Proxy Support

This handler supports the use of the environment variables HTTP_PROXY,
HTTPS_PROXY, and NO_PROXY (or the lowercase versions thereof). HTTPS_PROXY takes
precedence over HTTP_PROXY for https requests. The environment values may be
either a complete URL or a "host[:port]", in which case the "http" scheme is assumed.
