Exporter Helper

This is a helper exporter that other exporters can depend on. Today, it primarily offers queued retries and resource attributes to metric labels conversion.

⚠️ This exporter should not be added to a service pipeline.

Configuration

The following configuration options can be modified:

  • retry_on_failure
    • enabled (default = true)
    • initial_interval (default = 5s): Time to wait after the first failure before retrying; ignored if enabled is false
    • max_interval (default = 30s): Is the upper bound on backoff; ignored if enabled is false
    • max_elapsed_time (default = 300s): Is the maximum amount of time spent trying to send a batch; ignored if enabled is false
  • sending_queue
    • enabled (default = true)
    • num_consumers (default = 10): Number of consumers that dequeue batches; ignored if enabled is false
    • queue_size (default = 5000): Maximum number of batches kept in memory before dropping; ignored if enabled is false User should calculate this as num_seconds * requests_per_second / requests_per_batch where:
      • num_seconds is the number of seconds to buffer in case of a backend outage
      • requests_per_second is the average number of requests per seconds
      • requests_per_batch is the average number of requests per batch (if the batch processor is used, the metric batch_send_size can be used for estimation)
  • timeout (default = 5s): Time to wait per individual attempt to send data to a backend
Persistent Queue

Status: alpha

⚠️ The capability is under development. To use it, a storage extension needs to be set up.

To use the persistent queue, the following setting needs to be set:

  • sending_queue
    • storage (default = none): When set, enables persistence and uses the component specified as a storage extension for the persistent queue

The maximum number of batches stored to disk can be controlled using sending_queue.queue_size parameter (which, similarly as for in-memory buffering, defaults to 5000 batches).

When persistent queue is enabled, the batches are being buffered using the provided storage extension - filestorage is a popular and safe choice. If the collector instance is killed while having some items in the persistent queue, on restart the items will be be picked and the exporting is continued.

	// consecutive retries will always be `MaxInterval`.

	// MaxElapsedTime is the maximum amount of time (including retries) spent trying to send a request/batch.
	// Once this value is reached, the data is discarded.
	MaxElapsedTime time.Duration `mapstructure:"max_elapsed_time"`
}

RetrySettings defines configuration for retrying batches in case of export failure. The current supported strategy is exponential backoff.

func NewDefaultRetrySettings() RetrySettings

NewDefaultRetrySettings returns the default settings for RetrySettings.

type TimeoutSettings added in v0.7.0

type TimeoutSettings struct {
	// Timeout is the timeout for every attempt to send data to the backend.
	Timeout time.Duration `mapstructure:"timeout"`
}

TimeoutSettings for timeout. The timeout applies to individual attempts to send data to the backend.

func NewDefaultTimeoutSettings added in v0.46.0

func NewDefaultTimeoutSettings() TimeoutSettings

NewDefaultTimeoutSettings returns the default settings for TimeoutSettings.
