Introduction to exporter configuration

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

You can use exporters in conjunction with Google Cloud Managed Service for Prometheus to ingest metrics from third-party applications or from other components of the Prometheus infrastructure.

This set of documents includes configuration instructions for a number of common exporters. These instructions apply only if you are using managed collection with Managed Service for Prometheus. If you are using self-deployed collection, see the relevant exporter documentation for information about where to find the exporter's source repository.

This document is not an exhaustive list of the exporters supported by Managed Service for Prometheus. You can configure managed collection to scrape any exporter that you can set up. This list provides instructions for some of the most commonly used exporters.

Application exporters

You can use application exporters with Managed Service for Prometheus to collect metrics from third-party applications. These exporters are typically set up as standalone workloads or as sidecars to your existing GKE deployments.

For more information, see the following documents:

Infrastructure exporters

The documents in this section contain example YAML manifests and other configuration that you can use to install and scrape infrastructure exporters. For example, to replicate the experience of using the kube-prometheus repository, you can set up the Kube State Metrics and Node Exporter exporters, and configure managed collection to scrape the Kubelet/cAdvisor metrics.
