Aerospike Prometheus Exporter 1.16.0 Release Notes

February 27, 2024

Description & Highlights

Aerospike Prometheus Exporter 1.16.0 fixes some issues and adds support for some key system metrics, new cloud metrics, and native OpenTelemetry (OTEL) support.


This release removes support for job metrics.

Breaking Changes

In version 1.16.0, the Aerospike Prometheus Exporter configuration file ape.toml includes the following new line under the [Agent] section: PROMETHEUS = true

If you are upgrading to version 1.16.0 from a previous release, or if you deploy a templated version of ape.toml, you must add PROMETHEUS = true under the [Agent] section following the upgrade or prior to deploying the file. See Configuring Aerospike Prometheus Exporter for more information.

This issue will be fixed in a patch release. It is recommended that you do not use Aerospike Prometheus Exporter 1.16.0.
