gcp_exporter_config block configures the
gcp_exporter integration, which is an embedded version of
stackdriver_exporter. This allows for the collection of
metrics data from GCP Cloud Monitoring (formerly stackdriver).
The exporter supports all metrics available via GCP’s monitoring API.
gcp_exporter follows the template
The following example shows a load balancing metric:
The following list shows its attributes:
These attributes result in a final metric name of:
Grafana Agent must be running in an environment with access to the GCP project it is scraping. The exporter uses the Google Golang Client Library, which offers a variety of ways to provide credentials. Choose the option that works best for you.
After deciding how Agent will obtain credentials, ensure the account is set up with the IAM role
Since the exporter gathers all of its data from GCP monitoring APIs, this is the only permission needed.
# # Common Integration Settings # # Enables the gcp_exporter integration, allowing Agent to automatically collect metrics or expose gcp metrics.

[instance: <string>] # Automatically collect metrics from this integration. If disabled, the exporter integration is run but not # scraped and thus not remote-written. Metrics for the integration are exposed at # /integrations/gcp_exporter/metrics and can be scraped by an external process.

[scrape_timeout: <duration> | default = <global_config.scrape_timeout>] # Allows for relabeling labels on the target. relabel_configs: [- <relabel_config> ... ] # Relabel metrics coming from the integration, allowing series that you don't care about to be dropped # from the integration. metric_relabel_configs: [ - <relabel_config> ... ] # How frequently to truncate the WAL for this integration.

Most documented metrics include a comments of the form # `Sampled every X seconds. After sampling, data is not visible for up to Y seconds.` # As longs as your `request_interval` is >= `Y` you should have no issues. # Consider using `ingest_delay` if you would like this to be done programmatically or are gathering slower moving metrics. [request_interval: <duration> | default = "5m"] # Optional: When enabled this automatically adjusts the time range used when querying for metrics backwards based on # the metadata GCP has published for how long the data can take to be ingested. You can see the values for this in # documented metrics as `After sampling, data is not visible for up to Y seconds.` # Since GCPs ingestion delay is an "at worst," this is off by default to ensure data is gathered as soon as it's available. [ingest_delay: <boolean> | default = false] # Optional: When enabled this offsets the time range used when querying for metrics by a set amount.
