  • prometheus

In a microservice running gin-gonic, I'm trying to collect metrics in a router and expose them on a second one, but it seems this is not possible. Does anyone have experience in it?

All the documentation I found set the prometheus handler into the same application router.

Expected result

See promhttp_metric_handler_requests_total{code="200"} increasing for each visit of the :8000/test route

Actual result

promhttp_metric_handler_requests_total{code="200"} increase only for each visit of the :7100/metrics route

Example code

(following is a full application that can explain the issue)

package main

import (

func main() {
    router1 := gin.New()
    router1.GET("/test", func(c *gin.Context) {
        c.String(http.StatusOK, "it works")

    p := ginprometheus.NewPrometheus("test")

    router2 := gin.New()

    go func() { router2.Run(":7100") }()


The result of the previous code, after I loaded several time the endpoint :8000/test is the following and you can see that statistics of the namespace test are "empty"

    Thanks to all for trying to find a solution, I simply found that I was registering middleware after routes: in this way, routes declared before middleware are not "covered" by the same middleware.

    This code is correctly working:

    package main
    import (
    func main() {
        router1 := gin.New()
        router2 := gin.New()
        p := ginprometheus.NewPrometheus("test")
        router1.GET("/test", func(c *gin.Context) {
            c.String(http.StatusOK, "it works")
        go func() { router2.Run(":7100") }()

    Prometheus uses promhttp_metric_XXXXX for data it gathers data about itself, here:

    As you can gather from http://localhost:9090/metrics, one metric that Prometheus exports about itself is called promhttp_metric_handler_requests_total (the total number of /metrics requests the Prometheus server has served).

    What you are looking for is called gin_requests_total, example of 10 requests:

    gin_requests_total{code="200",handler="main.main.func1",host="localhost:8000",method="GET",url="/test"} 10

    Check p.SetListenAddressWithRouter() for using a separate router to expose metrics.

    EDIT I see that you name your subsystem "test". So, you should be looking for test_XXXXX, precisely, test_requests_total
