Here is an overview of how you can operate Promitor.

Health

Promitor provides a basic health endpoint that indicates the state of the scraper.

Health endpoints can be useful for monitoring the scraper, running sanity tests after deployments or use it for sending liveness / health probes.

Consuming the health endpoint

You can check the status with a simple GET:

❯ curl -i -X GET "http://<uri>/api/v1/health"

Health is currently indicated via the HTTP response status:

In the future, the endpoint will be more advanced by giving detailed status on dependencies as well.

Azure Resource Manager API - Consumption & Throttling

Promitor exposes runtime metrics to provide insights on the API consumption of Azure Resource Manager API:

You can read more about the Azure Resource Manager limitations on docs.microsoft.com.

Azure Monitor Integration

Promitor interacts with Azure Monitor API to scrape all the required metrics.

During troubleshooting it can be interesting to gain insights on what the API returns, for which you can opt-in.

You can opt-in for it by configuring the runtime telemetry.

Configuration REST APIs

In order to run Promitor certain aspects have to be configured. Once up & running, you typically do not touch or open the configuration anymore and just intereact with Promitor.

For some scenarios it can be useful to know what was configured:

Therefor we provide the following REST APIs:

For security reasons, some sections of the configuration might be sanitized in the response to avoid leaking secrets.

Exploring our REST APIs

We provide API documentation to make it easier for you to consume our REST APIs them:
