The heart of metrics collection

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: We have consolidated several different monitoring products down into prometheus and use custom scripts/exporters for metrics we never before were collecting and monitoring.

Pros:

Prometheus is extremely flexible with what it can ingest, it opens all kinds of doors.

Cons:

It can be difficult to implement although the community support is there it will require work.

Best modern monitoring and metrics tool

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: It was as simple as building a template script and including it between applications. The only thing necessary is to customize the Prometheus metrics that you want to track in every project.

Pros:

We were in need of a tool that can track metrics in any project, independently of the programming language on which it was built. You can integrate the exposed tracked metrics as endpoints and consume them in any graphic dashboard to visualize the results in real time. The service includes a variety of customizable wrappers for any metric.

Cons:

There is a learning path you have to follow before implementing Prometheus, which also includes third-party software for building graphic dashboards in order to visualize the metrics.
