This integration will monitor the status of your local or remote HTTP endpoints by issuing HTTP requests and collecting HTTP response data like response code, time and size.

Once enabled you will get a default HTTP dashboard to help you get started monitoring your HTTP endpoints.

Metric Name Type Labels Unit Description
http.status_code Gauge site code The HTTP response code.
http.response_size Gauge site byte The HTTP response size.
http.response_time Gauge site millisecond The HTTP response elapsed time.

Just run the HTTP plugin against your HTTP endpoint and it will start collecting metrics.
