    Prometheus

    Prometheus is a versatile monitoring tool that you can use to monitor infrastructure and application metrics. It is used to collect numeric metrics from services running 24/7 and allows metric data to be accessed via HTTP endpoints. Especially if you have a Kubernetes environment, Prometheus comes with it and you get many benefits. It presents the collected metrics to you in a language that people can understand. It ensures accurate collection and analysis of time series data. With the alert structure, you are informed about the metrics that exceed the threshold values.
