type String Must be http
interval Integer agent.defaults.interval Repetition interval in seconds
labels Object Additional collector-level labels
relabel Array Optional relabeling rules. See Relabeling Rules for details

The collector-specific configuration is:

Parameter Type Default Description
url String Request URL

Config example:

disabled: true
type: http
    project: Gufo

Collected Metrics

Metric Metric Type Description
http_time_ns Gauge Response time in nanoseconds"
bytes Gauge Response size in bytes

http collector doesn't append its labels, though they can be configured via labels option.
