Telemetry Provider

A telemetry provider is a software object that represents a data source of metrics. A telemetry instance is a specific instance of a telemetry provider that refers to a specific data source.
Examples of telemetry providers are:
  • monitoring tools (e.g. Prometheus or Dynatrace)
  • load testing tools (e.g. LoadRunner or Neoload)
  • CSV files
A telemetry provider is a platform-wide entity that can be reused across systems to ease the integration with metrics sources.
Akamas provides a number of out-of-the-box telemetry providers. Custom telemetry providers can also be created.


The construct to be used to define a telemetry provider is described on the Telemetry Provider template page.


A telemetry provider is an Akamas resource that can be managed via CLI using the resource management commands.
