Helper for exposing node-rdkafka statistics through prometheus

Fork of Collaborne/node-rdkafka-prometheus for use at the Wikimedia Foundation.


const RdkafkaPrometheus = require('node-rdkafka-prometheus');
const prometheus = require('prom-client');

const rdkafkaPrometheus= new RdkafkaPrometheus({
  // It is recommended that you pass in your require of prom-client to
  // RdkafkaPrometheus, as prom-client does not work well when it is required
  // more than once in the same process.
  // If you don't provide this, RdkafkaPrometheus will require('prom-client') itself.
  prometheus: prometheus, // optional
  extraLabels: { my_custom_label: 'label_value' },  // optional
  namePrefix: 'metric_name_prefix'  // optional
  // registers: [prometheus.register] // optional, this is the default.

// When setting up a consumer or producer:
const stream = rdkafka.KafkaConsumer.createReadStream({'statistics.interval.ms': 1000});
stream.consumer.on('event.stats', msg => {
  const stats = JSON.parse(msg.message);
  // Optional: override the default label value for any declared extraLabels.
  // If you use extraLabels here, the keys must have already been declared
  // in the extraLables RdkafaStats contructor option.
  const extraLabels = { my_custom_label: 'special_label_value' };
  rdkafkaPrometheus.observe(stats, extraLabels);
