Node exporter

Note: Available since Omnibus GitLab 8.16. For installations from source you'll have to install and configure it yourself.

The node exporter allows you to measure various machine resources such as memory, disk and CPU utilization.

To enable the node exporter:

  1. Enable Prometheus
  2. Edit /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb
  3. Add or find and uncomment the following line, making sure it's set to true:

    node_exporter['enable'] = true
  4. Save the file and reconfigure GitLab for the changes to take effect

Prometheus will now automatically begin collecting performance data from the node exporter exposed under localhost:9100.
