promjs

This is a fork of weaveworks/promjs.

A Prometheus metrics registry implemented in JavaScript.

Goals

  • Stick to Prometheus client best practices as closely as possible
  • Run in Node.js or the browser
  • Fit into the modern JavaScript ecosystem
  • Minimally rely on third-party dependencies

Installation

Install via npm:

$ npm install --save promjs

or via yarn:

$ yarn add promjs

Usage

// Using es6 imports
import prom from 'promjs';
// Using CommonJS
const prom = require('promjs');
 
const registry = prom();
const pageRequestCounter = registry.create('counter', 'page_requests', 'A counter for page requests');
 
pageRequestCounter.inc();
console.log(registry.metrics());
// =>
// # HELP page_requests A counter for page requests \n
// # TYPE page_requests counter
// page_requests 1 \n

API

prom()

Returns a registry class.

Registry

registry.create(type, name, help) => collector (counter | gauge | histogram)

Returns a metric class of the specified type. The metric is already registered with the registry that creates it.

Arguments

  1. type (String): The type of metric to create. The current supported types are counter, gauge, and historgram.
  2. name (String): The name of the metric
  3. help (String): The help message for the metric

Example

import prom from 'promjs';
 
const registry = prom();
const counter = registry.create('counter', 'my_counter', 'A counter for things');

registry.metrics() => string

Returns a prometheus formatted string containing all existing metrics.

const counter = registry.create('counter', 'my_counter', 'A counter for things');
counter.inc();
console.log(registry.metrics());
// =>
// # HELP my_counter A counter for things \n
// # TYPE my_counter counter
// my_counter 1 \n

registry.clear() => self

Resets all existing metrics to 0. This can be used to reset metrics after reporting to a prometheus aggregator. Returns itself to allow for chaining.

registry.get(name) => collector (counter | gauge | histogram) | null

Fetches an existing metric by name. Returns null if no metrics are found

Collector

All of the metric classes (Counter, Gauge, Histogram) inherit from the Collector class. Collector methods are available on each of the metic classes.

collector.reset([lables]) => self

Resets metrics in the collector. Optionally pass in labels to reset only those labels.

collector.resetAll() => self

Resets all metrics in the collector, including metrics with labels.

Counter

A counter can only ever be incremented positively.

counter.inc([labels]) => self

Increments a counter. Optionally pass in a set of labels to increment only those labels.

counter.add(amount, [labels]) => self

Increments a counter by a given amount. amount must be a Number. Optionally pass in a set of labels to increment only those labels.

const counter = registry.create('counter', 'my_counter', 'A counter for things');
counter.inc();
counter.add(2, { ok: true, status: 'success', code: 200 });
counter.add(2, { ok: false, status: 'fail', code: 403 });
 
console.log(registry.metrics());
// =>
// # HELP my_counter A counter for things
// # TYPE my_counter counter
// my_counter 1
// my_counter{ok="true",status="success",code="200"} 2
// my_counter{ok="false",status="fail",code="403"} 2

Gauge

A gauge is similar to a counter, but can be incremented up and down.

gauge.inc([labels]) => self

Increments a gauge by 1.

gauge.dec([lables]) => self

Decrements a gauge by 1.

gauge.add(amount, [lables]) => self

Increments a gauge by a given amount. amount must be a Number.

gauge.sub(amount, [labels]) => self

Decrements a gauge by a given amount.

const gauge = registry.create('gauge', 'my_gauge', 'A gauge for stuffs');
gauge.inc();
gauge.inc({ instance: 'some_instance' });
gauge.dec({ instance: 'some_instance' });
gauge.add(100, { instance: 'some_instance' });
gauge.sub(50, { instance: 'some_instance' });
 
console.log(registry.metrics());
// =>
// # HELP my_gauge A gauge for stuffs
// # TYPE my_gauge gauge
// my_gauge 1
// my_gauge{instance="some_instance"} 50

Histogram

Histograms are used to group values into pre-defined buckets. Buckets are passed in to the registry.create() call.

histogram.observe(value) => self

Adds value to a pre-existing bucket.value must be a number.

const histogram = registry.create('histogram', 'response_time', 'The response time', [
  200,
  300,
  400,
  500
]);
histogram.observe(299);
histogram.observe(253, { path: '/api/users', status: 200 });
histogram.observe(499, { path: '/api/users', status: 200 });
 
console.log(registry.metrics());
// =>
// # HELP response_time The response time
// # TYPE response_time histogram
// response_time_count 3
// response_time_sum 599
// response_time_bucket{le="200"} 1
// response_time_bucket{le="400",path="/api/users",status="200"} 1
// response_time_bucket{le="200",path="/api/users",status="200"} 1
