GitLab Configuration

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 (/admin/application_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.

GitLab Performance Monitoring Admin Settings

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

Pending Migrations

When any migrations are pending, the metrics are disabled until the migrations have been performed.
