Prometheus remote write backend

Prerequisites#

To use the prometheus remote write API with storage providers protobuf and snappy libraries should be installed first. Next, Netdata should be re-installed from the source. The installer will detect that the required libraries and utilities are now available.

Configuration#

An additional option in the backend configuration section is available for the remote write backend:

[backend]
remote write URL path = /receive

The default value is /receive. remote write URL path is used to set an endpoint path for the remote write protocol. For example, if your endpoint is http://example.domain:example_port/storage/read you should set

[backend]
destination = example.domain:example_port
remote write URL path = /storage/read

buffered and lost dimensions in the Netdata Backend Data Size operation monitoring chart estimate uncompressed buffer size on failures.

Notes#

The remote write backend does not support buffer on failures
