Prometheus process metrics exporter

GO application for counting the number of running processes and forming the corresponding metrics for Prometheus (Alpine Linux images)

The main task is to calculate the number of running processes for a given list of processes, use it to form Gauge metrics and display them on the page with metrics

The application is launched with a command in the ‘app’ folder

go run main -update 5 -port 8080 test1 test2 test3


  • “main” – application name;

  • “-update 5” – metrics refresh period on sec;

  • “-port 8080” – port where metrics are fed;

  • “test1…3” – names of processes.

Work with Docker (Alpine Linux images)
