ssl_exporter - Exports Prometheus metrics for SSL certificates
The blackbox_exporter allows you to test the expiry date of a certificate as part of its HTTP(S) probe - which is great. It doesn't, however, tell you which certificate in the chain is nearing expiry or give you any other information that might be useful when sending alerts. For instance, there's a definite value in knowing, upon first receiving an alert, if it's a certificate you manage directly or one further up the chain. It's also not always necessarily clear from the address you're polling what kind of certificate renewal you're looking at. Is it a Let's Encrypt, in which case it should be handled by automation? Or your organisation's wildcard? Maybe the domain is managed by a third-party and you need to submit a ticket to get it renewed.
