Prometheus Monitoring

Prometheus

Prometheus, a Cloud Native Computing Foundation project, is a systems and service monitoring system. It collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals, evaluates rule expressions, displays the results, and can trigger alerts if some condition is observed to be true.

Get metrics from Prometheus in real time, graph them and correlate them with other relevant monitors:

  • Visualize your web server performance,
  • Correlate the performance of Apache with the rest of your applications.

Supported versions

Prometheus 2.0 and above is supported.

Setup

This monitor doesn't involve any special setup. It works out of the box with Prometheus metrics endpoint.

Configuration

Prometheus Wizard

The Prometheus monitor requires the metrics page URL. Optional credentials can be provided when the page is protected by basic authentication. The status URL should be similar to:

http://{hostname}:{port}/metrics

Monitored Counters

Prometheus counters depend on the servers being monitored by Prometheus.
