Metrics Service Integrations


A distributed cloud applicaiton typically rely on other cloud services. For end-to-end observability, it is important to be able to monitor KPIs (key performance indicator) from these services. This topic describes the various integrations metrics service currently support.

⚓ Prerequisites

User is required to create a metrics service. User may enable collection of metrics from cloud services while setting up metrics streaming.

Enable Cloud Services Metrics Collection

User may use caeops metrics install-agent with --enable-cloud-services <coma-sperated-list> to enable or disable metrics collection from a cloud service. For example,

caeops metrics install-agent --enable-cloud-services aws-ec2,aws-dynamodb,aws-apigateway --service-name demo-metrics-service --cloud aws --source kubernetes --kubernetes-cluster-name demo-cluster

Supported Cloud Services

Metrics service offers a rich set of integrations with cloud services.
