Hikari CP Instrumentation #

As part of the JDBC instrumentation, Kamon can automatically gather performance metrics out of Hikari connection pools and use the pool information when creating Spans from Statements execution.

Metrics #

All Hikari connection pools will get the following metrics:


Tags included by default:
  • jdbc.pool.vendor: Name of the connection pool vendor.
  • jdbc.pool.name: Name of the connection pool for which the metric is being tracked.
  • db.vendor: Name of the JDBC driver vendor.

In case you are not using the Kamon Bundle, add the dependency below to your build:


libraryDependencies += "io.kamon" %% "kamon-jdbc" % "2.5.8"



    <dependency>
      <groupId>io.kamon</groupId>
      <artifactId>kamon-jdbc_2.13</artifactId>
      <version>2.5.8</version>
