Reporters/Metric Reporters

Reporting Metrics to SPM #

SPM is a proactive performance monitoring solution that provides anomaly detection, alerting, transaction tracing, network topology discovery and log correlation available in the Cloud and On Premises.

Installation #

Sign up. Create ‘Akka’ app in SPM. Get your SPM app token. Add kamon-spm dependency to your project according to application creation instructions.

libraryDependencies += "io.kamon" %% "kamon-spm" % "1.1.3"


implementation 'io.kamon:kamon-spm_2.13:1.1.3'

Configuration #

SPM backend extension requires the property kamon.spm.token to be defined. SPM provides reports for akka-actor, akka-router, akka-dispatcher, system-metrics, trace and other categories. You should define all required categories under kamon.util.filters.

kamon {
    spm {
      token = "[place-token-here]"
    reporters = ["kamon.spm.SPMReporter"]

To see a full example of Kamon SPM Backend configuration look at application.conf in sample Akka/Play app with Kamon and SPM.

Note: By default this extension uses hostname resolved using InetAddress.getLocalHost.getHostName. However, hostname can be redefined using kamon.spm.hostname-alias property.
