Kong Gateway 🔗
The Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector provides this integration as the Kong Gateway monitor with the SignalFx Smart Agent receiver. This monitor requires version 0.11.2+ of Kong and version 0.0.1+ of kong-plugin-signalfx.
Note: This integration is only supported for Kong Gateway Community Edition (CE).
After you’ve configured the integration, you can:
View metrics using the built-in dashboard. For information about dashboards, see View dashboards in Observability Cloud.
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 monitor. For information about Metric Finder, see Use the Metric Finder.
This monitor is available in the SignalFx Smart Agent Receiver, which is part of the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector.
Follow these steps to deploy the integration:
Install the Lua module on all Kong servers.
Deploy the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector to your host or container platform.
Configure the monitor, as described in the next section.
To activate this monitor in the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector, add the following to your configuration:
receivers: smartagent/kong: type: collectd/kong ... # Additional config
To complete the monitor activation, you must also include the
smartagent/kong receiver item in a
metrics pipeline. To do this, add the receiver item to the
receivers section of your configuration file. For example:
service: pipelines: metrics: receivers: [smartagent/kong]
