AWS AppMesh Envoy Proxy πŸ”—

Description πŸ”—

The Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector provides this integration as the appmesh monitor by using the SignalFx Smart Agent Receiver.

Use this integration to report metrics from AWS AppMesh Envoy Proxy.

To use this integration, you must also enable the Envoy StatsD sink on AppMesh and deploy the agent as a sidecar in the services that need to be monitored.

Benefits πŸ”—

After you configure the integration, you can access these features:

Installation πŸ”—

Follow these steps to deploy this integration:

  1. Deploy the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector to your host or container platform:

  2. Configure the monitor, as described in the Configuration section.

  3. Restart the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector.

Configuration πŸ”—

This monitor type is available in the Smart Agent Receiver, which is part of the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector. You can use existing Smart Agent monitors as OpenTelemetry Collector metric receivers with the Smart Agent Receiver.

This monitor type requires a properly configured environment on your system in which you’ve installed a functional Smart Agent release bundle. The Collector provides this bundle in the installation paths for x86_64/amd64.

To activate this monitor type in the Collector, add the following lines to your configuration (YAML) file:

Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector πŸ”—

To activate this monitor in the OpenTelemetry Collector, add the following to your agent configuration:

receivers:
  smartagent/appmesh:
    type: appmesh
      ... # Additional config

To complete the integration, include the monitor in a metrics pipeline. Add the monitor item to the service/pipelines/metrics/receivers section of your configuration file. For example:

service:
  pipelines:
    metrics:
      receivers: [smartagent/appmesh]

See the examples directory in the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector GitHub repo at https://githubcom/signalfx/splunk-otel-collector/tree/main/examples for specific use cases that show how the Collector can integrate and complement existing environments.

AWS AppMesh Envoy Proxy πŸ”—

To configure the AWS AppMesh Envoy Proxy, add the following lines to your configuration of the Envoy StatsD sink on AppMesh:

stats_sinks:
 -
  name: "envoy.statsd"
  config:
   address:
    socket_address:
     address: "127.0.0.1"
     port_value: 8125
     protocol: "UDP"
   prefix: statsd.appmesh

Because you need to remove the prefix in metric names before metric name conversion, set value of the prefix field with the value of the metricPrefix configuration field described in the following table. This change causes the monitor to remove this specified prefix. If you don’t specify a value for the prefix field, it defaults to envoy.

To learn more, see the Envoy API reference.

The following table shows the configuration options for this monitor:

Option
