Prometheus metrics

Prometheus is one of the popular monitoring systems. It pulls service's endpoint to get metrics in a simple text format. PiKVM has the ability to export some information to this system such as the server's ATX state, Pi's temperature, GPIO state and some other things.

Configure Prometheus

To enable Prometheus getting metrics from pikvm following config could be used:

scrape_configs:
  - job_name: "pikvm"
    metrics_path: "/api/export/prometheus/metrics"
    basic_auth:
      username: admin
      password: admin
    static_configs:
    - targets: ["https://pikvm"]
    tls_config:
      insecure_skip_verify: true # For self-signed certificate

Output example

This example includes the GPIO from the PiKVM's test config.
