Monitoring

Health Checks

Benthos serves two HTTP endpoints for health checks:

Metrics

Benthos exposes lots of metrics either to Statsd, Prometheus or for debugging purposes an HTTP endpoint that returns a JSON formatted object.

The target destination of Benthos metrics is configurable from the metrics section, where it's also possible to rename, whitelist or blacklist certain metric paths.

Tracing

Benthos also emits opentracing events to a tracer of your choice, which can be used to visualise the processors within a pipeline.
