Coder has open-sourced a new remote development platform 🥳 Check it out at coder/coder on GitHub.

Prometheus integration

The Prometheus integration enables you to query and visualize Coder's platform metrics.



Coder sends Prometheus-formatted metrics to port 2112 on the coderd container. Use the below PodMonitor resource to connect the Prometheus Operator to this endpoint:

kind: PodMonitor
  name: master-monitor
  namespace: coder
    matchLabels: coderd
    - port: prom-coderd

Workspace Metrics

Each coder workspace has an agent that connects to a single coderd instance. Each coderd instance will include all metrics from the workspaces it manages. The workspace metrics will all look like this:


Due to the nature of workspace ids, this produces a high cardinality of metric labels. This could be problematic for some configurations. If specific workspace metrics are not of interest, or are causing issues, you can configure your metric scraping service to drop these metrics.

Note that if a workspace connects to a new coderd (rebuild, network issue, coder update, etc), the metrics for that workspace will be moved to the new coderd metrics endpoint. The labels on the new metrics will likely have the new coderd pod name. So when tracking a singular workspace, you should track only by workspace_id throughout the lifetime of the workspace until it is deleted.

Drop workspace metrics config

Prometheus Documentation about relabelling metrics. In this case we will drop all metrics that contain the workspace_id label.

  - source_labels: ["workspace_id"]
    action: drop

In Prometheus Operator we can pass this config addition to our coderd PodMonitor spec.

kind: PodMonitor
  name: master-monitor
  namespace: coder
    matchLabels: coderd
    - port: prom-coderd
        - action: drop
            - workspace_id
