connect-go-prometheus

Prometheus monitoring for connect-go.

Interceptors

This library defines interceptors to observe both client-side and server-side calls.

Install

go get -u github.com/easyCZ/connect-go-prometheus

Usage

import (
    "github.com/easyCZ/connect-go-prometheus"
)

// Construct the interceptor. The same intereceptor is used for both client-side and server-side.
interceptor := connect_go_prometheus.NewInterceptor()

// Use the interceptor when constructing a new connect-go handler
_, _ := your_connect_package.NewServiceHandler(handler, connect.WithInterceptors(interceptor))

// Or with a client
client := your_connect_package.NewServiceClient(http.DefaultClient, serverURL, connect.WithInterceptors(interceptor))

For configuration, and more advanced use cases see Configuration

Metrics

Metrics exposed use the following labels:

  • type - one of unary, client_stream, server_stream or bidi
  • service - name of the service, for example myservice.greet.v1
  • method - name of the method, for example SayHello
  • code - the resulting outcome of the RPC. The codes match connect-go Error Codes with the addition of ok for succesful RPCs.

Server-side metrics

  • Counter connect_server_started_total with (type, service, method) labels
  • Counter connect_server_handled_total with (type, service, method, code) labels
  • (optionally) Histogram connect_server_handled_seconds with (type, service, method, code) labels

Client-side metrics

  • Counter connect_client_started_total with (type, service, method) labels
  • Counter connect_client_handled_total with (type, service, method, code) labels
  • (optionally) Histogram connect_client_handled_seconds with (type, service, method, code) labels

Configuration

Customizing client/server metrics reported

import (
    "github.com/easyCZ/connect-go-prometheus"
    prom "github.com/prometheus/client_golang/prometheus"
)

options := []connect_go_prometheus.MetricOption{
    connect_go_prometheus.WithHistogram(true),
    connect_go_prometheus.WithNamespace("namespace"),
    connect_go_prometheus.WithSubsystem("subsystem"),
    connect_go_prometheus.WithConstLabels(prom.Labels{"component": "foo"}),
    connect_go_prometheus.WithHistogramBuckets([]float64{1, 5}),
}

// Construct client metrics
clientMetrics := connect_go_prometheus.NewClientMetrics(options...)

// Construct server metrics
serverMetrics := connect_go_prometheus.NewServerMetrics(options...)

// When you construct either client/server metrics with options, you must also register the metrics with your Prometheus Registry
prom.MustRegister(clientMetrics, serverMetrics)

// Construct the interceptor with our configured metrics
interceptor := connect_go_prometheus.NewInterceptor(
    connect_go_prometheus.WithClientMetrics(clientMetrics),
    connect_go_prometheus.WithServerMetrics(serverMetrics),
)

Registering metrics against a Registry

You may want to register metrics against a Prometheus Registry. You can do this with the following:

import (
    "github.com/easyCZ/connect-go-prometheus"
    prom "github.com/prometheus/client_golang/prometheus"
)

clientMetrics := connect_go_prometheus.NewClientMetrics()
serverMetrics := connect_go_prometheus.NewServerMetrics()

registry := prom.NewRegistry()
registry.MustRegister(clientMetrics, serverMetrics)

interceptor := connect_go_prometheus.NewInterceptor(
    connect_go_prometheus.WithClientMetrics(clientMetrics),
    connect_go_prometheus.WithServerMetrics(serverMetrics),
)

Disabling client/server metrics reporting

To disable reporting of either client or server metrics, pass nil as an option.

import (
    "github.com/easyCZ/connect-go-prometheus"
)

// Disable client-side metrics
interceptor := connect_go_prometheus.NewInterceptor(
    connect_go_prometheus.WithClientMetrics(nil),
)

// Disable server-side metrics
interceptor := connect_go_prometheus.NewInterceptor(
    connect_go_prometheus.WithServerMetrics(nil),
)

    Support for connect_server_msg_received_total/connect_server_msg_sent_total

    Thanks for the library! Really useful for my team transitioning away from pure gRPC/go-grpc-prometheus. I was wondering if you were planning on implementing the streams metrics as well.
