Configure applications with Prometheus metrics 🔗

The Prometheus receiver allows the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector to collect metrics from any source exposing telemetry in Prometheus format. See more at Prometheus receiver.

Benefits 🔗

By default, the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector includes the Prometheus receiver in the metrics/internal pipeline when deployed in host monitoring (agent) mode. See Collector deployment modes for more information.

This receiver and pipeline enable the collection of the Collector’s internal metrics, such as data loss, ingress, egress, that power the built-in Collector dashboard.

Scrape any service that emits metrics in Prometheus format 🔗

You can also use the Prometheus receiver to connect Splunk Observability Cloud with any service that can export their existing data as Prometheus metrics. See a complete list of third-party applications compatible with Prometheus in Prometheus’ official documentation at Prometheus exporters .
