CAUTION: InfluxDB is deprecated in favor of Prometheus: InfluxDB support is scheduled to be removed in GitLab 13.0. You are advised to use Prometheus instead.
GitLab Performance Monitoring is disabled by default. To enable it and change any of its
settings, navigate to Admin Area > Settings > Metrics and profiling
The minimum required settings you need to set are the InfluxDB host and port. Make sure Enable InfluxDB Metrics is checked and hit Save to save the changes.
Finally, a restart of all GitLab processes is required for the changes to take effect:
# For Omnibus installations sudo gitlab-ctl restart # For installations from source sudo service gitlab restart
When any migrations are pending, the metrics are disabled until the migrations have been performed.
