GitLab exporter

The GitLab exporter allows you to measure various GitLab metrics, pulled from Redis and the database, in Omnibus GitLab instances.

Note: For installations from source you’ll have to install and configure it yourself.

To enable the GitLab exporter in an Omnibus GitLab instance:

  1. Enable Prometheus
  2. Edit /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb
  3. Add or find and uncomment the following line, making sure it’s set to true:

    gitlab_exporter['enable'] = true
    
  4. Save the file and reconfigure GitLab for the changes to take effect

Prometheus will now automatically begin collecting performance data from the GitLab exporter exposed under localhost:9168.
