Node exporter

The node exporter enables you to measure various machine resources such as memory, disk and CPU utilization.

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

To enable the node exporter:

  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:

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

Prometheus will now begin collecting performance data from the node exporter exposed at localhost:9100.
