Prometheus is a service monitoring and time series database, which is open source.
Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
My company had several different products to monitor and alert on all aspects of IT. We began using Prometheus to consolidate all the monitoring and alerting products at the best possible cost (free). We also use Prometheus metrics to visualize the data in Grafana which helps get a better picture of our environment.
- Flexible metrics collection.
- Open source.
- PromQL can be difficult to learn at first.
In an environment where there is just not one product that can monitor all aspects, Prometheus can step in. It can be used to monitor physical, virtual, containers, just about anything. With it being open source, the community comes together and has created several exporters to get data from almost anything imaginable.
So we are using Prometheus for monitoring of our own servers. Basically there's just a self-sufficient tool which has its own database. This tends to take care of a lot of stuff out of our minds, since you just setup Prometheus docker on one machine and just deploy agents on the nodes and you are basically set for monitoring everything that happens on that node.
- Inbuilt database.
- Amazing visualization.
- Need to extend its support.
I would say that every organization should definitely start using Prometheus for monitoring as long as it is a small environment with less than 1000 nodes. I haven't tried it with more nodes, but I have heard that if you have a bigger infrastructure, better shift to something better than Prometheus.
