Installation

yarn add @envelop/prometheus

@envelop/prometheus

This plugin tracks the complete execution flow, and reports metrics using Prometheus tracing (based on prom-client).

You can opt-in to collect tracing from the following phases:

  • Sucessfull requests (requestCount)
  • Request summary (requestSummary)
  • errors (categorized by phase)
  • resolvers tracing and runtime
  • deprecated fields usage
  • count of graphql operations
  • parse execution time
  • validate execution time
  • contextBuilding execution time
  • execute execution time

You can also customize each phase reporter, and add custom metadata and labels to the metrics.

Getting Started

yarn add prom-client @envelop/prometheus

Usage Example

import { parse, validate, specifiedRules, execute, subscribe } from 'graphql'
import { envelop, useEngine } from '@envelop/core'
import { usePrometheus } from '@envelop/prometheus'
 
const getEnveloped = envelop({
  plugins: [
    useEngine({ parse, validate, specifiedRules, execute, subscribe }),
    // ... other plugins ...
    usePrometheus({
      // all optional, and by default, all set to false, please opt-in to the metrics you wish to get
      requestCount: true, // requries `execute` to be true as well
      requestSummary: true, // requries `execute` to be true as well
      parse: true,
      validate: true,
      contextBuilding: true,
      execute: true,
      errors: true,
      resolvers: true, // requires "execute" to be `true` as well
      resolversWhitelist: ['Mutation.*', 'Query.user'], // reports metrics als for these resolvers, leave `undefined` to report all fields
      deprecatedFields: true,
      registry: myRegistry // If you are using a custom prom-client registry, please set it here
    })
  ]
})

Note: Tracing resolvers using resovlers: true might have a performance impact on your GraphQL runtime. Please consider to test it locally first and then decide if it's needed.

Custom registry

You can customize the prom-client Registry object if you are using a custom one, by passing it along with the configuration object:

import { parse, validate, specifiedRules, execute, subscribe } from 'graphql'
import { envelop, useEngine } from '@envelop/core'
import { Registry } from 'prom-client'
 
const myRegistry = new Registry()
 
const getEnveloped = envelop({
  plugins: [
    useEngine({ parse, validate, specifiedRules, execute, subscribe }),
    // ... other plugins ...
    usePrometheus({
      // ... config ...
      registry: myRegistry
    })
  ]
})

Note: if you are using custom prom-client instances, you need to make sure to pass your registry there as well.

Introspection

If you wish to disable introspection logging, you can use skipIntrospection: true in your config object.

Custom prom-client instances

Each tracing field supports custom prom-client objects, and custom labels a metadata, you can create a custom extraction function for every Histogram / Summary / Counter:

import { parse, validate, specifiedRules, execute, subscribe } from 'graphql'
import { Histogram } from 'prom-client'
import { envelop, useEngine } from '@envelop/core'
import { createHistogram, usePrometheus } from '@envelop/prometheus'
 
const getEnveloped = envelop({
  plugins: [
    useEngine({ parse, validate, specifiedRules, execute, subscribe }),
    // ... other plugins ...
    usePrometheus({
      // all optional, and by default, all set to false, please opt-in to the metrics you wish to get
      parse: createHistogram({
        histogram: new Histogram({
          name: 'my_custom_name',
          help: 'HELP ME',
          labelNames: ['opText'] as const,
          registers: [registry] // make sure to add your custom registry, if you are not using the default one
        }),
        fillLabelsFn: params => {
          // if you wish to fill your `lables` with metadata, you can use the params in order to get access to things like DocumentNode, operationName, operationType, `error` (for error metrics) and `info` (for resolvers metrics)
          return {
            opText: print(params.document)
          }
        }
      })
    })
  ]
})
