Monitoring with Prometheus

by Alexander Schwartz

Published January 23, 2018 in Technology

This talk takes a developer's perspective and shows how to get started with Prometheus as a monitoring platform and how it differs from other monitoring concepts.

Prometheus has been designed for operational monitoring in cloud- and non-cloud environments with a simple yet reliable setup. Use it to monitor your infrastructure and containers and to look inside your applications. All configuration is stored in configuration files. All gathered information is stored in a time series database to generate alerts and display Grafana dashboards.

After presenting the concepts expect a live demo monitoring infrastructure, containers and a Java application using Prometheus and a Grafana dashboard.
