The prometheus.exporter.snowflake component embeds snowflake_exporter for collecting warehouse, database, table, and replication statistics from a Snowflake account via HTTP for Prometheus consumption.


prometheus.exporter.snowflake "LABEL" {
    account_name = ACCOUNT_NAME
    username =     USERNAME
    password =     PASSWORD
    warehouse =    WAREHOUSE


The following arguments can be used to configure the exporter’s behavior. Omitted fields take their default values.

account_namestringThe account to collect metrics for.yes
usernamestringThe username for the user used when querying metrics.yes
passwordsecretThe password for the user used when querying metrics.yes
rolestringThe role to use when querying metrics."ACCOUNTADMIN"no
warehousestringThe warehouse to use when querying metrics.yes


The prometheus.exporter.snowflake component does not support any blocks, and is configured fully through arguments.

Exported fields

The following fields are exported and can be referenced by other components.

targetslist(map(string))The targets that can be used to collect exporter metrics.

For example, the targets can either be passed to a discovery.relabel component to rewrite the targets’ label sets or to a prometheus.scrape component that collects the exposed metrics.

The exported targets use the configured in-memory traffic address specified by the run command.

Component health

prometheus.exporter.snowflake is only reported as unhealthy if given an invalid configuration. In those cases, exported fields retain their last healthy values.

Debug information

prometheus.exporter.snowflake does not expose any component-specific debug information.

Debug metrics

prometheus.exporter.snowflake does not expose any component-specific debug metrics.


This example uses a prometheus.scrape component to collect metrics from prometheus.exporter.snowflake:

prometheus.exporter.snowflake "example" {
  account_name = "XXXXXXX-YYYYYYY"
  username     = "grafana"
  password     = "snowflake"
  warehouse    = "examples"

// Configure a prometheus.scrape component to collect snowflake metrics.
prometheus.scrape "demo" {
  targets    = prometheus.exporter.snowflake.example.targets
  forward_to = [prometheus.remote_write.demo.receiver]

prometheus.remote_write "demo" {
  endpoint {

    basic_auth {
      username = USERNAME
      password = PASSWORD

Replace the following:

  • PROMETHEUS_REMOTE_WRITE_URL: The URL of the Prometheus remote_write-compatible server to send metrics to.
  • USERNAME: The username to use for authentication to the remote_write API.
  • PASSWORD: The password to use for authentication to the remote_write API.
