Synopsis

        # nginx.conf:
    
        lua_package_path "/path/to/lua-resty-influx/lib/?.lua;;";
        lua_shared_dict metrics  1m;
    
        init_worker_by_lua_block {
            local resty_reporter = require "resty.influx.db.reporter"
            local reporter = resty_reporter.new("http://127.0.0.1:12354", "user", "pass", "nginx", {
                tags = {
                    host = "127.0.0.1"
                },
                async = true -- auto flush reported data to influx
            })
            local resty_registry = require "resty.influx.registry"
            _G.registry = resty_registry.new{reporter}
    
            local func_reporter
            func_reporter = function(registry)
                registry:report()
            
                local ok, err = ngx.timer.at(10, func_reporter, registry)
                if not ok then
                    error(err)
                end

            local ok, err = ngx.timer.at(10, func_reporter, _G.registry)
            if not ok then
                error(err)
            end
        }
    
        server {
            location = /t {
                content_by_lua_block {
                    local registry = _G.registry
                    local measurement = registry:measurement("request", {tag_key = tag_val})
                    local context = measurement:timer("rt"):time()
    
                    pcall(function() 
                        for i = 1, 3 do
                            measurement:counter("tps"):mark(i)
                            measurement:averager("size"):update(i)
                            measurement:histogram("value"):update(i)
                        end
                        ngx.sleep(0.01)
                        ngx.update_time()
                    end)
    
                    context:stop()
    
                    -- do report
                    registry:report()
                }

Methods

To load this library,

  1. you need to specify this library's path in ngx_lua's lua_package_path directive. For example, lua_package_path "/path/to/lua-resty-influx/lib/?.lua;;";.

  2. you use require to load the library into a local Lua variable:

        local resty_registry = require "resty.influx.registry"

new

syntax: registry = resty_registry.new(reporters)

Creates a new registry object instance.

    -- creates a registry object
    local resty_registry = require "resty.influx.registry"
    local registry = resty_registry.new()

Report metrics to the influxdb.

    local resty_reporter = require "resty.influx.db.reporter"
    local reporter = resty_reporter.new("http://127.0.0.1:12354", "user", "pass", "nginx")
    
    local resty_registry = require "resty.influx.registry"
    local registry = resty_registry.new{ reporter }

measurement

syntax: measurement = registry:measurement(key, {tag1= value1, tag2= value2, ... })

Creates a measurement object instance.

    local measurement = registry:measurement("request")

report

syntax: registry:report()

Report measurement to the reporters.
