Move over Graphite, Prometheus is here

We all agree that metrics are important, and that Graphite’s a great tool for capturing them. However, in the last few years the metrics space has released lots of great tools that blow Graphite out of the water – one of which is Prometheus from Soundcloud. Prometheus allows you to query any dimension of your data whilst still storing it in a highly efficient format.

Together, we’ll take a look at how to get started with Prometheus, including how to create dashboards with Grafana and alerts using AlertManager. By the time you leave, you’ll understand how Prometheus works and will be itching to add it to your own projects!
