I would like to see an example of using templates in Prometheus

Gokulasuriyan R.K April 2, 2021

I am looking for some help on using prometheus Templates in my prometheus config.yml file.

 

1. Where and how to define templates, so that Prometheus recognizes them?

2. How to use templates ? Please refer to my scenario below.

Basically I want to avoid repetitive definitions.

 

my prometheus config.yml, right now:
------------------------------------------
scrape_configs:
# The job name is added as a label `job=<job_name>` to any timeseries scraped from this config.

- job_name: 'DT11A SAMPLE'
scheme: https
basic_auth:
username: usr
password: pwd
metrics_path: "/yyy"
params:
agent: ['xxxx']
delta: ['true']
function: ['xxxx']
static_configs:
- targets: ['yyyy']

- job_name: 'DT12A SAMPLE'
scheme: https
basic_auth:
username: usr
password: pwd
metrics_path: "/yyy"
params:
agent: ['xxx']
delta: ['true']
function: ['XXXX']
static_configs:
- targets: ['yyy']

How I want my prometheus config.yml file to be:
------------------------------------------------------

scrape_configs:
# The job name is added as a label `job=<job_name>` to any timeseries scraped from this config.


- job_name: 'DT11A SAMPLE'
{{template "myConfig"}}

- job_name: 'DT12A SAMPLE'
{{template "myConfig"}}

template I want to define:
-----------------------------

{{define "myConfig"}}

scheme: https
basic_auth:
username: usr
password: pwd
metrics_path: "/yyy"
params:
agent: ['xxx']
delta: ['true']
function: ['XXXX']
static_configs:
- targets: ['yyy']

{{end}}

Hi @Gokulasuriyan R.K ,

 

It sounds like this is more of a general Prometheus question, as opposed to a question specific to Opsgenie's integration with Prometheus .

 

I think this question would be better suited in a general Prometheus forum. I found this doc on template examples in Prometheus.

 

If you have any questions specific to Opsgenie's integration with Prometheus, feel free to share and we can do our best to assist! We just don't have much expertise on using Prometheus in general.

 

Thanks,

Samir
