Prometheus Exporter

This class creates a prometheus exporter, which scrapes the transactions (total transaction count) for the use cases incorporating the use of Keychain memory plugin.


The prometheus exporter object is initialized in the PluginKeychainMemory class constructor itself, so instantiating the object of the PluginKeychainMemory class, gives access to the exporter object. You can also initialize the prometheus exporter object seperately and then pass it to the IPluginKeychainMemoryOptions interface for PluginKeychainMemory constructor.

getPrometheusMetricsV1 function returns the prometheus exporter metrics, currently displaying the total key count, which currently updates everytime a new key is added/removed from the list of total keys.

Prometheus Integration

To use Prometheus with this exporter make sure to install Prometheus main component. Once Prometheus is setup, the corresponding scrape_config needs to be added to the prometheus.yml

- job_name: 'keychain_memory_exporter'
  metrics_path: api/v1/plugins/@hyperledger/cactus-plugin-keychain-memory/get-prometheus-exporter-metrics
  scrape_interval: 5s
    - targets: ['{host}:{port}']

Here the host:port is where the prometheus exporter metrics are exposed. The test cases (For example, packages/cactus-plugin-keychain-memory/src/test/typescript/unit/plugin-keychain-memory.test.ts) exposes it over and a random port(). The random port can be found in the running logs of the test case and looks like (42379 in the below mentioned URL) Metrics URL:

Once edited, you can start the prometheus service by referencing the above edited prometheus.yml file. On the prometheus graphical interface (defaulted to http://localhost:9090), choose Graph from the menu bar, then select the Console tab. From the Insert metric at cursor drop down, select cactus_keychain_memory_total_key_count and click execute
