GitLab Configuration

GitLab Performance Monitoring is disabled by default. To enable it and change any of its settings:

  1. Go to Admin Area > Settings > Metrics and profiling (/admin/application_settings/metrics_and_profiling).
  2. Add the necessary configuration changes.
  3. Restart all GitLab for the changes to take effect:

    • For Omnibus GitLab installations: sudo gitlab-ctl restart
    • For installations from source: sudo service gitlab restart
noteRemoved in GitLab 13.0. Use the Prometheus integration instead.

Pending migrations

When any migrations are pending, the metrics are disabled until the migrations have been performed.
