Learn to Monitor Cloud Apps and Services with Prometheus

Want to know what is happening in your cloud-native environment at a given time? When using Prometheus to monitor your cloud workloads, you can historically collect and view metrics from configured targets to determine the moment in time when failures occur. Get an introduction to Prometheus and learn how to install and configure Prometheus through video content.

Prometheus is a monitoring system, which collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals. It uses a powerful multidimensional data model with its own query language (PromQL). These features aid in discovering trends, events, and errors.

The Prometheus server stores the collected metrics in a time-series database, and its query language allows for the effortless monitoring of CPU usage, memory usage, amount of HTTP request served, etc.

The four major components of Prometheus are:

  1. Gathering component for accumulating data from various systems
  2. Storage component for storing gathered data for future use
  3. Viewing component for getting information from stored data
  4. Alerting component for processing the stored data and triggering alerts based on certain conditions
