Circonus metrics tracking for Go applications

This library supports named counters, gauges and histograms. It also provides convenience wrappers for registering latency instrumented functions with Go’s builtin http server.

Initializing only requires setting an API Token at a minimum.

Options

See OPTIONS.md for information on all of the available cgm options.

Example

Bare bones minimum

A working cut-n-past example. Simply set the required environment variable CIRCONUS_API_TOKEN and run.

package main

import (
    "log"
    "math/rand"
    "os"
    "os/signal"
    "syscall"
    "time"

    cgm "github.com/circonus-labs/circonus-gometrics"
)

func main() {

    logger := log.New(os.Stdout, "", log.LstdFlags)

    logger.Println("Configuring cgm")

    cmc := &cgm.Config{}
    cmc.Debug = false // set to true for debug messages
    cmc.Log = logger

    // Circonus API Token key (https://login.circonus.com/user/tokens)
    cmc.CheckManager.API.TokenKey = os.Getenv("CIRCONUS_API_TOKEN")

    logger.Println("Creating new cgm instance")

    metrics, err := cgm.NewCirconusMetrics(cmc)
    if err != nil {
        logger.Println(err)
        os.Exit(1)
    }

    src := rand.NewSource(time.Now().UnixNano())
    rnd := rand.New(src)

    logger.Println("Adding ctrl-c trap")
    c := make(chan os.Signal, 2)
    signal.Notify(c, os.Interrupt, syscall.SIGTERM)
    go func() {
        <-c
        logger.Println("Received CTRL-C, flushing outstanding metrics before exit")
        metrics.Flush()
        os.Exit(0)
    }()

    logger.Println("Starting to send metrics")

    // number of "sets" of metrics to send
    max := 60

    for i := 1; i < max; i++ {
        logger.Printf("\tmetric set %d of %d", i, 60)
        metrics.Timing("foo", rnd.Float64()*10)
        metrics.Increment("bar")
        metrics.Gauge("baz", 10)
        time.Sleep(time.Second)
    }

    metrics.SetText("fini", "complete")

    logger.Println("Flushing any outstanding metrics manually")
    metrics.Flush()
}

A more complete example

A working, cut-n-paste example with all options available for modification. Also, demonstrates metric tagging.

            metrics.SetMetricTags("baz", []string{"cgm:reset_test", "cgm:test2"})
        }

        time.Sleep(time.Second)

    logger.Println("Flushing any outstanding metrics manually")
    metrics.Flush()

HTTP Handler wrapping

http.HandleFunc("/", metrics.TrackHTTPLatency("/", handler_func))

HTTP latency example

package main

import (
    "os"
    "fmt"
    "net/http"
    cgm "github.com/circonus-labs/circonus-gometrics"
)

func main() {
    cmc := &cgm.Config{}
    cmc.CheckManager.API.TokenKey = os.Getenv("CIRCONUS_API_TOKEN")

    metrics, err := cgm.NewCirconusMetrics(cmc)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    http.HandleFunc("/", metrics.TrackHTTPLatency("/", func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
        fmt.Fprintf(w, "Hello, %s!", r.URL.Path[1:])
    }))
    http.ListenAndServe(":8080", http.DefaultServeMux)
