AWS AppMesh Envoy Proxy πŸ”—

The Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector uses the Smart Agent receiver with the AppMesh monitor type to report metrics from AWS AppMesh Envoy Proxy.

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

This integration is available on Kubernetes, Linux, and Windows.

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 the OpenTelemetry Collector to your host or container platform:

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

  3. Restart the Splunk Distribution of the OpenTelemetry Collector.

Configuration πŸ”—

To use this integration of a Smart Agent monitor with the Collector:

  1. Include the Smart Agent receiver in your configuration file.

  2. Add the monitor type to the Collector configuration, both in the receiver and pipelines sections.

Example πŸ”—

To activate this integration, add the following to your Collector configuration:

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

Next, add the monitor to the service.pipelines.metrics.receivers section of your configuration file:

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

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

Notes πŸ”—

  • To learn more about the available in Splunk Observability Cloud see Metric types

  • In host-based subscription plans, default metrics are those metrics included in host-based subscriptions in Splunk Observability Cloud, such as host, container, or bundled metrics. Custom metrics are not provided by default and might be subject to charges. See Metric categories for more information.

  • In MTS-based subscription plans, all metrics are custom.

  • To add additional metrics, see how to configure extraMetrics in Add additional metrics
