Grafana Mimir HTTP API

Grafana Mimir exposes an HTTP API that you can use to write and query time series data, and operate the cluster.

This document groups API endpoints by service. Note that the API endpoints are exposed when you run Grafana Mimir in microservices mode, monolithic mode, and read-write mode:

  • Microservices mode: Each service exposes its own endpoints.
  • Monolithic mode: The Grafana Mimir instance exposes all API endpoints.
  • Read-write mode: The component services are exposed on the endpoint that they are contained within. Either Mimir read, Mimir write, or Mimir backend. Refer to Deployment modes for the grouping of components.

Authentication

Endpoints that require authentication must be called with the X-Scope-OrgID HTTP request header specified to the tenant ID.

If you disable multi-tenancy, Grafana Mimir doesn’t require any request to include the X-Scope-OrgID header.

Multi-tenancy can be enabled and disabled via the -auth.multitenancy-enabled flag or its respective YAML configuration option.

For more information about authentication and authorization, refer to Authentication and Authorization.

POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/format_query

Formats the PromQL query.

This endpoint is compatible with the Prometheus format query endpoint.

For more information about formatting queries, refer to Prometheus’ documentation.

Memberlist cluster

GET /memberlist

This admin page shows information about Memberlist cluster (list of nodes and their health) and KV store (keys and values in the KV store).

If memberlist message history is enabled, this page also shows all received and sent messages stored in the buffers. This can be useful for troubleshooting memberlist cluster. To enable message history buffers use -memberlist.message-history-buffer-bytes CLI flag or the corresponding YAML configuration parameter.

Get tenant limits

GET /api/v1/user_limits

Returns realtime limits for the authenticated tenant, in JSON format. This API is experimental.

Requires authentication.

The endpoint is only available if Grafana Mimir is configured with the -runtime-config.file option.

Distributor

The following endpoints relate to the distributor.

Remote write

POST /api/v1/push

Entrypoint for the Prometheus remote write.

This endpoint accepts an HTTP POST request with a body that contains a request encoded with Protocol Buffers and compressed with Snappy. You can find the definition of the protobuf message in pkg/mimirpb/mimir.proto. The HTTP request must contain the header X-Prometheus-Remote-Write-Version set to 0.1.0.

To skip the label name validation, perform the following actions:

  • Enable API’s flag -api.skip-label-name-validation-header-enabled=true
  • Ensure that the request is sent with the header X-Mimir-SkipLabelNameValidation: true

This feature supports the writes from non-standard downstream clients that have metric name not Prometheus compliant.

For more information, refer to Prometheus Remote storage integrations.

Requires authentication.

OTLP

POST /otlp/v1/metrics

Note

To send OTLP data to Grafana Cloud, refer to Send data using OpenTelemetry Protocol (OTLP).

Entrypoint for the OTLP HTTP.

This endpoint accepts an HTTP POST request with a body that contains a request encoded with Protocol Buffers and optionally compressed with GZIP. You can find the definition of the protobuf message in metrics.proto.

Requires authentication.

Distributor ring status

GET /distributor/ring

This endpoint displays a web page with the distributor hash ring status, including the state, and the health and last heartbeat time of each distributor.

Tenants stats

GET /distributor/all_user_stats

This endpoint displays a web page that shows per-tenant statistics updated in real time, including the total number of active series across all ingesters and the current ingestion rate displayed in samples per second.

Note

This endpoint requires all ingesters to be ACTIVE in the ring for a successful response.

HA tracker status

GET /distributor/ha_tracker

This endpoint displays a web page with the current status of the HA tracker, including the elected replica for each Prometheus HA cluster.

Ingester

The following endpoints relate to the ingester.

Flush chunks / blocks

GET,POST /ingester/flush

This endpoint triggers a flush of the in-memory series time series data to the long-term storage. This endpoint also triggers the flush when -blocks-storage.tsdb.flush-blocks-on-shutdown is disabled.

This endpoint accepts a tenant parameter to specify the tenant whose blocks are compacted and shipped. This parameter might be specified multiple times to select more tenants. If no tenant is specified, all tenants are flushed.

The flush endpoint also accepts a wait=true parameter, which makes the call synchronous, and only returns a status code after flushing completes.

Note

The returned status code doesn’t reflect the result of flush operation.

Prepare for Shutdown

GET,POST,DELETE /ingester/prepare-shutdown

This endpoint inspects or changes in-memory ingester configuration to prepare for permanently stopping an ingester instance but does not actually stop any part of the ingester.

After a POST to the prepare-shutdown endpoint returns, when the ingester process is stopped with SIGINT / SIGTERM, the ingester will be unregistered from the ring and in-memory time series data will be flushed to long-term storage. This endpoint causes the ingester to be unregistered from the ring when stopped even if you disable -ingester.ring.unregister-on-shutdown.

A GET to the prepare-shutdown endpoint returns the status of this configuration, either set or unset.

A DELETE to the prepare-shutdown endpoint reverts the configuration of the ingester to its previous state (with respect to unregistering on shutdown and flushing of in-memory time series data to long-term storage).

This API endpoint is usually used by Kubernetes-specific scale down automations such as the rollout-operator.

Shutdown

GET,POST /ingester/shutdown

This endpoint flushes in-memory time series data from ingesters to the long-term storage, and then shuts down the ingester service. After the shutdown endpoint returns, the operator or any automation that’s used terminates the process with a SIGINT / SIGTERM signal. During this time, /ready does not return 200. This endpoint unregisters the ingester from the ring even if you disable -ingester.ring.unregister-on-shutdown.

This API endpoint is usually used by scale down automations.

TSDB Metrics

GET /ingester/tsdb_metrics

This endpoint returns low-level metrics exposed by per-tenant TSDB. This can be useful for troubleshooting. Difference from /metrics is that metrics returned in /metrics are aggregated across all open TSDBs, while this endpoint returns TSDB metrics only for specific tenant.

Requires authentication, authenticated tenant is one whose TSDB metrics are returned.

Ingesters ring status

GET /ingester/ring

This endpoint displays a web page with the ingesters hash ring status, including the state, health, and last heartbeat time of each ingester.

Ingester tenants

GET /ingester/tenants

Displays a web page with the list of tenants with open TSDB on given ingester.

Ingester tenant TSDB

GET /ingester/tsdb/{tenant}

Displays a web page with details about tenant’s open TSDB on given ingester.

Querier / Query-frontend

The following endpoints are exposed both by the querier and query-frontend.

Instant query

GET,POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/query

This endpoint is compatible with the Prometheus instant query endpoint.

For more information about Prometheus instant queries, refer to Prometheus instant query.

Requires authentication.

Range query

GET,POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/query_range

This endpoint is compatible with the Prometheus range query endpoint. When a client sends a request through the query-frontend, the query-frontend uses caching and execution parallelization to accelerate the query.

For more information about Prometheus range queries, refer to Prometheus range query.

Requires authentication.

Exemplar query

GET,POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/query_exemplars

This endpoint is compatible with the Prometheus exemplar query endpoint.

For more information about Prometheus exemplar queries, refer to Prometheus exemplar query.

Requires authentication.

Get series by label matchers

GET,POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/series

For more information, refer to Prometheus series endpoint.

Requires authentication.

Get label names

GET,POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/labels

For more information, refer to Prometheus get label names.

Requires authentication.

Caching

The query-frontend can return a stale response fetched from the query results cache if -query-frontend.cache-results is enabled and -query-frontend.results-cache-ttl-for-labels-query set to a value greater than 0.

Get label values

GET <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/label/{name}/values

For more information, refer to Prometheus get label values.

Requires authentication.

Caching

The query-frontend can return a stale response fetched from the query results cache if -query-frontend.cache-results is enabled and -query-frontend.results-cache-ttl-for-labels-query set to a value greater than 0.

Get metric metadata

GET <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/metadata

Prometheus-compatible metric metadata endpoint.

For more information, refer to Prometheus metric metadata.

Requires authentication.

Remote read

POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/read

Prometheus-compatible remote read endpoint.

For more information, refer to Prometheus Remote storage integrations.

Requires authentication.

Label names cardinality

GET,POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/cardinality/label_names

Returns label names cardinality across all ingesters, for the authenticated tenant, in JSON format. It counts distinct label values per label name.

The items in the field cardinality are sorted by label_values_count in DESC order and by label_name in ASC order. The count of items is limited by limit request param.

This endpoint is disabled by default and can be enabled via the -querier.cardinality-analysis-enabled CLI flag (or its respective YAML config option).

Requires authentication.

Count series by inmemory or active

Two methods of counting are available: inmemory and active. To choose one, use the count_method parameter.

The inmemory method counts the labels in currently opened TSDBs in Mimir’s ingesters. Two subsequent calls might return completely different results if an ingester cut a block between calls. This method of counting is most useful for understanding ingester memory usage.

The active method also counts labels in currently opened TSDBs in Mimir’s ingesters, but filters out values that have not received a sample within a configurable duration of time. To configure this duration, use the -ingester.active-series-metrics-idle-timeout parameter. This method of counting is most useful for understanding what label values are represented in the samples ingested by Mimir in the last -ingester.active-series-metrics-idle-timeout. Two subsequent calls will likely return similar results, because this window of time is not related to the block cutting on ingesters. Values will change only as a result of changes in the data ingested by Mimir.

Caching

The query-frontend can return a stale response fetched from the query results cache if -query-frontend.cache-results is enabled and -query-frontend.results-cache-ttl-for-cardinality-query set to a value greater than 0.

Request params

  • selector - optional - specifies PromQL selector that will be used to filter series that must be analyzed.
  • count_method - optional - specifies which series counting method will be used. (default=“inmemory”, available options=[“inmemory”, “active”])
  • limit - optional - specifies max count of items in field cardinality in response (default=20, min=0, max=500)

  "cardinality": [
    {
      "label_name": <string>,
      "label_values_count": <number>
    }
  ]
}

Label values cardinality

GET,POST <prometheus-http-prefix>/api/v1/cardinality/label_values

Returns label values cardinality associated to request param label_names[] across all ingesters, for the authenticated tenant, in JSON format. It returns the series count per label value associated to request param label_names[].

The items in the field labels are sorted by series_count in descending order and by label_name in ascending order. The items in the field cardinality are sorted by series_count in DESC order and by label_value in ASC order. The count of cardinality items is limited by request parameter limit.

This endpoint is disabled by default; you can enable it via the -querier.cardinality-analysis-enabled CLI flag (or its respective YAML configuration option).

Requires authentication.

Count series by inmemory or active

Two methods of counting are available: inmemory and active. To choose one, use the count_method parameter.

The inmemory method counts the number of series in currently opened TSDBs in Mimir’s ingesters. Two subsequent calls might return completely different results if an ingester cut a block between calls. This method of counting is most useful for understanding ingester memory usage.

The active method also counts series in currently opened TSDBs in Mimir’s ingesters, but filters out series that have not received a sample within a configurable duration of time. To configure this duration, use the -ingester.active-series-metrics-idle-timeout parameter. This method of counting is most useful for understanding what label values are represented in the samples ingested by Mimir in the last -ingester.active-series-metrics-idle-timeout. Two subsequent calls will likely return similar results, because this window of time is not related to the block cutting on ingesters. Values will change only as a result of changes in the data ingested by Mimir.

Caching

This endpoint doesn’t accept any URL query parameter and returns 200 on success.

This endpoint can be enabled and disabled via the -alertmanager.enable-api CLI flag (or its respective YAML config option).

Requires authentication.

Note

To retrieve a tenant’s Alertmanager configuration from Mimir, use mimirtool alertmanager get command.

Set Alertmanager configuration

POST /api/v1/alerts

Stores or updates the Alertmanager configuration for the authenticated tenant. The Alertmanager configuration is stored in the configured backend object storage.

This endpoint expects the Alertmanager YAML configuration in the request body and returns 201 on success.

The names of the templates in template_files must be valid file names and not contain any path separators. For example, both /templates/my-template.tpl and ./my-template.tpl are invalid, whereas my-template.tpl is valid.

This endpoint can be enabled and disabled via the -alertmanager.enable-api CLI flag (or its respective YAML config option).

Requires authentication.

Note

To load a tenant’s Alertmanager configuration to Mimir, use mimirtool alertmanager load command.

Note

When using curl to send the request body from a file, ensure that you use the --data-binary flag instead of -d, --data, or --data-ascii.

The latter options don’t preserve carriage returns and newlines.

Store-gateway

Store-gateway ring status

GET /store-gateway/ring

Displays a web page with the store-gateway hash ring status, including the state, healthy and last heartbeat time of each store-gateway.

Store-gateway tenants

GET /store-gateway/tenants

Displays a web page with the list of tenants with blocks in the storage configured for store-gateway.

Store-gateway tenant blocks

GET /store-gateway/tenant/{tenant}/blocks

Displays a web page listing the blocks for a given tenant.

Prepare for Shutdown

GET,POST,DELETE /store-gateway/prepare-shutdown

This endpoint changes in-memory store-gateway configuration to prepare for permanently stopping a store-gateway instance but does not actually stop any part of the latter.

After a POST to the prepare-shutdown endpoint returns, when the store-gateway process is stopped with SIGINT / SIGTERM, the store-gateway will be unregistered from the ring.

A GET to the prepare-shutdown endpoint returns the status of this configuration, either set or unset.

A DELETE to the prepare-shutdown endpoint reverts the configuration of the store-gateway to its previous state (with respect to unregistering).

This API endpoint is usually used by Kubernetes-specific scale down automations such as the rollout-operator.

Compactor

Compactor ring status

GET /compactor/ring

Displays a web page with the compactor hash ring status, including the state, healthy and last heartbeat time of each compactor.

Start block upload

POST /api/v1/upload/block/{block}/start

Starts the uploading of a TSDB block with a given ID to object storage. The client should send the block’s meta.json file as the request body. If the complete block already exists in object storage, a 409 (Conflict) status code gets returned. If the provided meta.json file is invalid, a 400 (Bad Request) status code gets returned. If the block’s max time is before the tenant’s retention period, a 422 (Unprocessable Entity) status code gets returned.

The provided meta.json file must have a thanos.files section with the list of the block’s files, otherwise the request will be rejected.

If the API request succeeds, a sanitized version of the block’s meta.json file gets uploaded to object storage as uploading-meta.json, and a 200 status code gets returned. Then you can start uploading files, and once done, you can request completion of the block upload.

Requires authentication.

Upload block file

POST /api/v1/upload/block/{block}/files?path={path}

Uploads a file with a given path, for a block with a given ID. The file path has to be one of the following, otherwise a 400 (Bad Request) status code gets returned:

  • index
  • chunks/<6-digit number>

The client must send the content of the file as the body of the request; if the body is empty, a 400 (Bad Request) status code gets returned. If the complete block already exists in object storage, a 409 (Conflict) status code gets returned. If an in-flight meta file (uploading-meta.json) doesn’t exist in object storage for the block in question, a 404 (Not Found) status code gets returned.

If the API request succeeds, the file gets uploaded with the given path to the block’s directory in object storage, and a 200 status code gets returned.

Requires authentication.

Complete block upload

POST /api/v1/upload/block/{block}/finish

Initiates the completion of a TSDB block with a given ID to object storage. If the complete block already exists in object storage, a 409 (Conflict) status code gets returned. If an in-flight meta file (uploading-meta.json) doesn’t exist in object storage for the block in question, a 404 (Not Found) status code gets returned. If the compactor has reached its limit for the maximum number of concurrent block upload validations, which is configured with -compactor.max-block-upload-validation-concurrency, a 429 (Too Many Requests) will be returned.

If the API request succeeds, compactor will start the block validation in the background. If the background validation passes block upload is finished by renaming in-flight meta file to meta.json in the block’s directory.

This API endpoint returns 200 (OK) at the beginning of the validation. To further check state of the block upload, use Check block upload API endpoint.

Requires authentication.

This API endpoint is experimental and subject to change.

Check block upload

GET /api/v1/upload/block/{block}/check

Returns state of the block upload. State is returned as JSON object with field result, with following possible values:

  • complete – block validation is complete, and block upload is now finished.
  • uploading – block is still being uploaded, and Complete block upload has not yet been called on the block.
  • validating – block is being validated. Validation was started by call to Complete block upload API.
  • failed – block validation has failed. Error message is available from error field of the returned JSON object.

Example response

json
{ "result": "uploading" }
