Hello Gábor!

That’s very useful!  Hopefully we can start using it on our build farm,
though we’ll need Grafena (?) or something to visualize those stats,
right?  OTOH apparently it already provides a web interface, so…?

This is actually only one half of the solution, this provides an endpoint for
the prometheus server to scrape. I've not yet packaged the server part.
The server has the needed visualization capabilities.
It would be nice to add a system test for this service.  It could ensure
that representative URLs return 200 or 404, for instance (see the
hpcguix-web test in (gnu tests web) as an example.)


Ok, will do.

The first sentence looks like a tautology.  :-)
I’m also unconvinced by the “*NIX” notation.

What about:

  The Prometheus ``node exporter'' makes hardware and operating system
  statistics available for the…

Please leave two spaces after end-of-sentence periods.

Should be @defvr instead of @defvar.

Please add a newline before the second @item.

Most of these were copied almost verbatim form darkstat service. Maybe these modification should be also applied there.
Will send an updated patch. Should I contact Sou Bunnbu regadring the darkstat documentation, or should I fix it?
With these changes and ideally a simple test, this is ready to go IMO!
