Grafana Alloy is the new name for our distribution of the OTel collector. Grafana Agent has been deprecated and is in Long-Term Support (LTS) through October 31, 2025. Grafana Agent will reach an End-of-Life (EOL) on November 1, 2025. Read more about why we recommend migrating to Grafana Alloy.

The consul_exporter_config block configures the consul_exporter integration, which is an embedded version of consul_exporter. This allows for the collection of consul metrics and exposing them as Prometheus metrics.

Full reference of options:

  # Enables the consul_exporter integration, allowing the Agent to automatically
  # collect system metrics from the configured consul server address
  [enabled: <boolean> | default = false]

  # Sets an explicit value for the instance label when the integration is
  # self-scraped. Overrides inferred values.
  # The default value for this integration is inferred from the hostname portion
  # of the server URL.
  [instance: <string>]

  # Automatically collect metrics from this integration. If disabled,
  # the consul_exporter integration will be run but not scraped and thus not
  # remote-written. Metrics for the integration will be exposed at
  # /integrations/consul_exporter/metrics and can be scraped by an external
  # process.
  [scrape_integration: <boolean> | default = <integrations_config.scrape_integrations>]

  # How often should the metrics be collected? Defaults to
  [scrape_interval: <duration> | default = <global_config.scrape_interval>]

  # The timeout before considering the scrape a failure. Defaults to
  [scrape_timeout: <duration> | default = <global_config.scrape_timeout>]

  # Allows for relabeling labels on the target.
    [- <relabel_config> ... ]

  # Relabel metrics coming from the integration, allowing to drop series
  # from the integration that you don't care about.
    [ - <relabel_config> ... ]

  # How frequent to truncate the WAL for this integration.
  [wal_truncate_frequency: <duration> | default = "60m"]

  # Exporter-specific configuration options

  # Prefix from which to expose key/value pairs.
  [kv_prefix: <string> | default = ""]

  # Regex that determines which keys to expose.
  [kv_filter: <string> | default = ".*"]

  # Generate a health summary for each service instance. Needs n+1 queries to
  # collect all information.
  [generate_health_summary: <bool> | default = true]

  # HTTP API address of a Consul server or agent. Prefix with https:// to
  # connect using HTTPS.
  [server: <string> | default = "http://localhost:8500"]

  # Disable TLS host verification.
  [insecure_skip_verify: <bool> | default = false]

  # File path to a PEM-encoded certificate authority used to validate the
  # authenticity of a server certificate.
  [ca_file: <string> | default = ""]

  # File path to a PEM-encoded certificate used with the private key to verify
  # the exporter's authenticity.
  [cert_file: <string> | default = ""]

  # File path to a PEM-encoded private key used with the certificate to verify
  # the exporter's authenticity.
  [key_file: <string> | default = ""]

  # When provided, this overrides the hostname for the TLS certificate. It can
  # be used to ensure that the certificate name matches the hostname we declare.
  [server_name: <string> | default = ""]

  # Timeout on HTTP requests to the Consul API.
  [timeout: <duration> | default = "500ms"]

  # Limit the maximum number of concurrent requests to consul. 0 means no limit.
  [concurrent_request_limit: <int> | default = 0]

  # Allows any Consul server (non-leader) to service a read.
  [allow_stale: <bool> | default = true]

  # Forces the read to be fully consistent.
  [require_consistent: <bool> | default = false]
