GitLab exporter

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

Note: For installations from source you must 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 automatically begins collecting performance data from the GitLab exporter exposed at localhost:9168.
