Sysdig Info Metrics

Sysdig provides Prometheus compatible Info metrics to show infrastructure (sysdig_*_info) and Kubernetes (kube_*_info) labels. The info metric are gauges with a value of 1 and will have the _info suffix .

For example, querying sysdig_host_info in PromQL Query will provide all labels associated with the host, such as:

  • agent_id
  • agent_tag_cluster
  • host_hostname
  • domain
  • host
  • host_domain
  • host_mac
  • instance_id

Although info metrics are available, all the metrics that are ingested by Sysdig agents are automatically enriched with the metadata and you don’t need to do PromQL joins. For more information, see Run PromQL Queries Faster with Extended Label Set
