package runmetrics

import "go.opencensus.io/plugin/runmetrics"

Package runmetrics contains support for runtime metrics.

To enable collecting runtime metrics, just call Enable():

_ := runmetrics.Enable(runmetrics.RunMetricOptions{
    EnableCPU: true,
    EnableMemory: true,

func Disable Uses

func Disable()

Disable disables collection of runtime metrics.

func Enable Uses

func Enable(options RunMetricOptions) error

Enable enables collection of runtime metrics.

Supply RunMetricOptions to configure the behavior of metrics collection. An error might be returned, if creating metrics gauges fails.

Previous calls will be overwritten by subsequent ones.

    if err != nil {

    // Use your reader/exporter to extract values
    // This part is not specific to runtime metrics and only here to make it a complete example.


type RunMetricOptions Uses

type RunMetricOptions struct {
    EnableCPU    bool   // EnableCPU whether CPU metrics shall be recorded
    EnableMemory bool   // EnableMemory whether memory metrics shall be recorded
    Prefix       string // Prefix is a custom prefix for metric names

RunMetricOptions allows to configure runtime metrics.
