GitLab exporter

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

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.
