Databricks Receiver 🔗

Use this integration to view and monitor the health of your Databricks clusters.

The Databricks Receiver uses the Databricks API to generate metrics about the operation of a Databricks instance. The supported pipeline type is metrics.


This receiver is in alpha. Behavior, configuration fields, and metric data model are subject to change.

Benefits 🔗

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

  • View a data-driven visualization of the physical servers, virtual machines, AWS instances, and other resources in your environment that are visible to Infrastructure Monitoring. For information about navigators, see Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring navigators.

  • Access Metric Finder and search for metrics sent by the receiver. For information about Metric Finder, see Use the Metric Finder.

Installation 🔗

Follow these steps to deploy the integration:

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

  2. Configure the receiver as described in the next section.

  3. Restart the Collector.

Configuration 🔗

To activate this receiver, add a collection to your configuration (YAML) file, as shown in the following example:

    instance_name: my-instance
    token: abc123
    collection_interval: 60s
    max_results: 10

See the Collector YAML file on GitHub for the complete configuration.

Configuration options 🔗

The following table shows the configuration options available for this receiver:

Configuration options 🔗





A string representing the name of the instance. This value gets set as a resource attribute.
