GitLab Configuration

GitLab Performance Monitoring is disabled by default. To enable it and change any of its settings, navigate to the Admin area in Settings > Metrics (/admin/application_settings).

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

Pending Migrations

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