Overview ▾

Package expfmt contains tools for reading and writing Prometheus metrics.


Constants to assemble the Content-Type values for the different wire protocols.

const (
    TextVersion   = "0.0.4"
    ProtoType     = `application/vnd.google.protobuf`
    ProtoProtocol = `io.prometheus.client.MetricFamily`
    ProtoFmt      = ProtoType + "; proto=" + ProtoProtocol + ";"

    // The Content-Type values for the different wire protocols.
    FmtUnknown      Format = `<unknown>`
    FmtText         Format = `text/plain; version=` + TextVersion
    FmtProtoDelim   Format = ProtoFmt + ` encoding=delimited`
    FmtProtoText    Format = ProtoFmt + ` encoding=text`
    FmtProtoCompact Format = ProtoFmt + ` encoding=compact-text`

func ExtractSamples

func ExtractSamples(o *DecodeOptions, fams ...*dto.MetricFamily) (model.Vector, error)

ExtractSamples builds a slice of samples from the provided metric families. If an error occurs during sample extraction, it continues to extract from the remaining metric families. The returned error is the last error that has occured.

func MetricFamilyToText

func MetricFamilyToText(out io.Writer, in *dto.MetricFamily) (int, error)

MetricFamilyToText converts a MetricFamily proto message into text format and writes the resulting lines to 'out'. It returns the number of bytes written and any error encountered. The output will have the same order as the input, no further sorting is performed. Furthermore, this function assumes the input is already sanitized and does not perform any sanity checks. If the input contains duplicate metrics or invalid metric or label names, the conversion will result in invalid text format output.

This method fulfills the type 'prometheus.encoder'.

type DecodeOptions

DecodeOptions contains options used by the Decoder and in sample extraction.

type DecodeOptions struct {
    // Timestamp is added to each value from the stream that has no explicit timestamp set.
    Timestamp model.Time

type Decoder

Decoder types decode an input stream into metric families.

type Decoder interface {
    Decode(*dto.MetricFamily) error

func NewDecoder

func NewDecoder(r io.Reader, format Format) Decoder

NewDecoder returns a new decoder based on the given input format. If the input format does not imply otherwise, a text format decoder is returned.

type Encoder

Encoder types encode metric families into an underlying wire protocol.

type Encoder interface {
    Encode(*dto.MetricFamily) error

func NewEncoder

func NewEncoder(w io.Writer, format Format) Encoder

NewEncoder returns a new encoder based on content type negotiation.

type Format

Format specifies the HTTP content type of the different wire protocols.

type Format string

func Negotiate

func Negotiate(h http.Header) Format

Negotiate returns the Content-Type based on the given Accept header. If no appropriate accepted type is found, FmtText is returned.

func ResponseFormat

func ResponseFormat(h http.Header) Format

ResponseFormat extracts the correct format from a HTTP response header. If no matching format can be found FormatUnknown is returned.

type ParseError

ParseError signals errors while parsing the simple and flat text-based exchange format.

type ParseError struct {
    Line int
    Msg  string

func (ParseError) Error

func (e ParseError) Error() string

Error implements the error interface.

type SampleDecoder

SampleDecoder wraps a Decoder to extract samples from the metric families decoded by the wrapped Decoder.

type SampleDecoder struct {
    Dec  Decoder
    Opts *DecodeOptions
    // contains filtered or unexported fields

func (*SampleDecoder) Decode

func (sd *SampleDecoder) Decode(s *model.Vector) error

Decode calls the Decode method of the wrapped Decoder and then extracts the samples from the decoded MetricFamily into the provided model.Vector.

type TextParser

TextParser is used to parse the simple and flat text-based exchange format. Its zero value is ready to use.

type TextParser struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields

func (*TextParser) TextToMetricFamilies

func (p *TextParser) TextToMetricFamilies(in io.Reader) (map[string]*dto.MetricFamily, error)

TextToMetricFamilies reads 'in' as the simple and flat text-based exchange format and creates MetricFamily proto messages. It returns the MetricFamily proto messages in a map where the metric names are the keys, along with any error encountered.

If the input contains duplicate metrics (i.e. lines with the same metric name and exactly the same label set), the resulting MetricFamily will contain duplicate Metric proto messages. Similar is true for duplicate label names. Checks for duplicates have to be performed separately, if required. Also note that neither the metrics within each MetricFamily are sorted nor the label pairs within each Metric. Sorting is not required for the most frequent use of this method, which is sample ingestion in the Prometheus server. However, for presentation purposes, you might want to sort the metrics, and in some cases, you must sort the labels, e.g. for consumption by the metric family injection hook of the Prometheus registry.

Summaries and histograms are rather special beasts. You would probably not use them in the simple text format anyway. This method can deal with summaries and histograms if they are presented in exactly the way the text.Create function creates them.

This method must not be called concurrently. If you want to parse different input concurrently, instantiate a separate Parser for each goroutine.
