Prometheus service discovery

Supported service discovery configs

vmagent and single-node VictoriaMetrics supports the following Prometheus-compatible service discovery options for Prometheus-compatible scrape targets in the file pointed by -promscrape.config command-line flag.

  • azure_sd_configs is for scraping the targets registered in Azure Cloud. See these docs.
  • consul_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping targets registered in Consul. See these docs.
  • digitalocean_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping targerts registered in DigitalOcean. See these docs.
  • dns_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping targets from DNS records (SRV, A and AAAA). See these docs.
  • docker_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping Docker targets. See these docs.
  • dockerswarm_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping Docker Swarm targets. See these docs.
  • ec2_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping Amazon EC2 targets. See these docs.
  • eureka_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping targets registered in Netflix Eureka. See these docs.
  • file_sd_configs is for scraping targets defined in external files (aka file-based service discovery). See these docs.
  • gce_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping Google Compute Engine targets. See these docs.
  • http_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping targerts provided by external http-based service discovery. See these docs.
  • kubernetes_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping Kubernetes targets. See these docs.
  • openstack_sd_configs is for discovering and scraping OpenStack targets. See these docs.
  • static_configs is for scraping statically defined targets. See these docs.
  • yandexcloud_sd_configs is for discoverying and scraping Yandex Cloud targets. See these docs.

Note that the refresh_interval option isn't supported for these scrape configs. Use the corresponding -promscrape.*CheckInterval command-line flag instead. For example, -promscrape.consulSDCheckInterval=60s sets refresh_interval for all the consul_sd_configs entries to 60s. Run vmagent -help or victoria-metrics -help in order to see default values for the -promscrape.*CheckInterval flags.

Please file feature requests to our issue tracker if you need other service discovery mechanisms to be supported by VictoriaMetrics and vmagent.

http_sd_configs

HTTP-based service discovery fetches targets from the specified url.

Configuration example:

scrape_configs:
- job_name: http
  http_sd_configs:
    # url must contain the URL from which the targets are fetched.
  - url: "http://..."

    # Additional HTTP API client options can be specified here.
    # See https://docs.victoriametrics.com/sd_configs.html#http-api-client-options

The service at url must return JSON response in the following format:

[
  {
    "targets": [ "<host>", ... ],
    "labels": {
      "<labelname>": "<labelvalue>",
      ...
    }
  },
  ...
]

The url is queried periodically with the interval specified in -promscrape.httpSDCheckInterval command-line flag. Discovery errors are tracked in promscrape_discovery_http_errors_total metric.

The following meta labels are available on discovered targets during relabeling:

  • __meta_url: the URL from which the target was extracted

  #
  # If honor_labels is set to "true", label conflicts are resolved by keeping label
  # values from the scraped data and ignoring the conflicting server-side labels.
  #
  # If honor_labels is set to "false", label conflicts are resolved by renaming
  # conflicting labels in the scraped data to "exported_<original-label>" (for
  # example "exported_instance", "exported_job") and then attaching server-side
  # labels.
  #
  # Setting honor_labels to "true" is useful for use cases such as federation and
