Temporal Cloud observability through metrics

Beyond the metrics provided by the Temporal SDKs, some key metrics exist only in Temporal Cloud. You can use your own observability tool to query an endpoint and review Namespace metrics.

Metrics for all Namespaces in your account are available from your metrics endpoint.

Metrics lag real-time performance by about one minute.

Temporal Cloud retains raw metrics for seven days.

To ensure security of your metrics, a CA certificate dedicated to observability is required. Only clients that use certificates signed by that CA, or that chain up to the CA, can query the metrics endpoint. For more information about CA certificates in Temporal Cloud, see Certificate requirements.
