Redpanda Setup Guide
Well Known IO
Redpanda exports Prometheus metrics on
<node ip>:9644/metrics. If you have an
existing Prometheus instance, you can generate the relevant configuration using
rpk generate prometheus-config
The command will output a YAML object you can add to the
in your Prometheus config file:
- job_name: redpanda-node static_configs: - targets: - 172.31.18.239:9644 - 172.31.18.238:9643 - 172.31.18.237:9642
If you run the command on a node where redpanda is running, it will use
redpanda’s Kafka API to discover the other nodes. Otherwise, you can pass
seed-addr to specify a remote redpanda node from which to discover the other
--node-addrs with a comma-separated list of all known cluster node
You can generate a comprehensive Grafana dashboard with
rpk generate grafana-dashboard --datasource <name> --prometheus-url <url>
--prometheus-url is the address to a redpanda node’s metrics endpoint
<node ip>:9644/metrics, by default).
<name> is the name of the Prometheus datasource configured in your
Right out of the box, it will generate panels tracking latency for p50, p95 and p99, throughput, and errors segmentated by type.
Simply pipe the commmand’s output to a file and import it in Grafana.
rpk generate grafana-dashboard \ --datasource prometheus \ --prometheus-url 184.108.40.206:9644/metrics > redpanda-dashboard.json
Redpanda ships with an additional
systemd service which executes periodically
and reports resource usage and configuration data to Vectorized’s metrics API.
It is enabled by default, and the data is anonymous. If you’d like us to be able
to identify your cluster’s data, so that we can monitor it and alert you of
possible issues, please set the
organization (your company’s domain) and
cluster_id (usually your team’s or project’s name) configuration fields. For
rpk config set organization 'vectorized.io' rpk config set cluster_id 'us-west-2'
To opt out of all metrics reporting, set
rpk.enable_usage_stats to false via
rpk config set rpk.enable_usage_stats false
