Tested Switches

  • XS708E
  • GS108Ev3
  • GS105Ev2


Download from release page, and extract to any directory ( e.g. /usr/local/bin ). See the example files in example directory as below.

File Description
example/prosafe_exporter.service systemd unit file

If the release build doesn't fit your environment, you can build and install from source code.

cargo install prosafe_exporter


prosafe_exporter --web.listen-address=":9493"

The default listen port is 9493. It can be changed by --web.listen-address option.

Prometheus Server Configuration

The target switches of prosafe_exporter can be configured by the pair of hostname and network interface name ( e.g. switch1:eth0 ). The network interface must be belonged to the same subnet as the switch.

The Prometheus server configuration is like SNMP exporter. The example of a configuration is below:

- job_name: 'prosafe'
      - targets: ['switch1:eth0', ''] # target switches by hostname:if_name.
  metrics_path: /probe
    - source_labels: [__address__]
      target_label: __param_target
    - source_labels: [__param_target]
      target_label: instance
    - target_label: __address__
      replacement: # The prosafe_exporter's real hostname:port.

Query Example

Outgoing data rate of port1 on switch1:eth0 is below.

rate(prosafe_transmit_bytes_total{instance="switch1:eth0", port="1"}[1m])
