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.


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
