Metric

The metric template is designed to let you describe runtime metric to dispatch to monitoring backends.

Example config:

apiVersion: "config.istio.io/v1alpha2"
kind: instance
metadata:
  name: requestsize
  namespace: istio-system
spec:
  compiledTemplate: metric
  params:
    value: request.size | 0
    dimensions:
      source_version: source.labels["version"] | "unknown"
      destination_service: destination.service.host | "unknown"
      destination_version: destination.labels["version"] | "unknown"
      response_code: response.code | 200
    monitored_resource_type: '"UNSPECIFIED"'

Template

The metric template represents a single piece of data to report.

When writing the configuration, the value for the fields associated with this template can either be a literal or an expression. Please note that if the datatype of a field is not istio.policy.v1beta1.Value, then the expression’s inferred type must match the datatype of the field.

Field Type Description Required
value Value

The value being reported.

No
dimensions map<string, Value>

The unique identity of the particular metric to report.

No
monitoredResourceType string

Optional. An expression to compute the type of the monitored resource this metric is being reported on. If the metric backend supports monitored resources, these fields are used to populate that resource. Otherwise these fields will be ignored by the adapter.

No
monitoredResourceDimensions map<string, Value>

Optional. A set of expressions that will form the dimensions of the monitored resource this metric is being reported on. If the metric backend supports monitored resources, these fields are used to populate that resource. Otherwise these fields will be ignored by the adapter.
