Telemetry

Overview

Each Anapaya appliance exposes a telemetry endpoint that can be used to retrieve telemetry data from the appliance.

Tip

To enable telemetry of the appliance, the telemetry endpoint needs to be configured in the Management section of the appliance configuration.

The telemetry data is exported in the form of Prometheus metrics. Prometheus is an open-source systems monitoring and alerting tool. It collects and stores metrics as time series data alongside optional key-value pairs called labels. A metric is a numeric measurement of a specific event or condition, e.g., the number of packets sent on a specific interface. Recording metrics in time series provides then higher-level insights such as the rate of change of the sent packet counter to calculate the throughput of the interface. Labels add additional dimensions to a metric, e.g., the name of the interface for which the packet count is collected is added as a label.

Each Anapaya appliance internally has several modules that expose some of their internal states as metrics. Each module manages a particular part of the system, such as the SCION control plane, the SCION data plane, or the IP-in-SCION tunneling service. For each module, we list the exposed metrics, their names, the type of the metric, a brief description, and the attached labels. Please refer to the individual sections below for more information.

To access these metrics, a Prometheus server is needed that ingests the metrics from each appliance. How to set up a Prometheus server to collect appliance metrics is outside the scope of this document. Please refer to the Prometheus Getting Started guide for more information. Should you require assistance with integrating appliance metrics in your monitoring setup, please contact Anapaya’s customer support team (customer-support@anapaya.net).
