Overall Satisfaction with Prometheus

We use Prometheus along with Linkerd service mesh to complement our Amazon EKS clusters. Prometheus is used to store time series data reported by all the pods running in the EKS cluster. The data is then fed to the Linkerd dashboard for visualization. The data helps us identify problems within the cluster and also check the availability and performance of our services.

Pros

  • Efficiently storing time series data.
  • Powerful querying.
  • Better visualization.

Cons

  • Better explanation of the query language and syntax.
  • Visualisation can be better, it's not as good as Grafana.
  • Long term storage.
  • Easy to integrate into a log of data exporters.
  • Alerting with powerful querying.
  • Basic UI for visualizing data.
  • Prometheus has helped us a lot in quickly setting up a monitoring and alerting system for our applications.
  • Alerts have helped us identify issues with production env and reduce downtimes and improve the availability and reliability of our services.
Prometheus is cheaper, and you can quickly set it up compared to others. It is integrated with most of the open-source monitoring and alerting tools and can help small companies in having a cost-effective solution early in their stage.
