Getting Started with Prometheus

via Pluralsight


This course will teach you how to get up and running with Prometheus and add a consistent monitoring approach to all your apps and servers.

Prometheus is a cross-platform monitoring tool that lets you collect metrics from servers, containers, and applications and work with them all in the same way. In this course, Getting Started with Prometheus, you'll learn why it's such a popular approach to monitoring and how you can start bringing it into your organization. First, you'll learn about the architecture of Prometheus and how it uses a pull model to collect metrics from many targets. Then, you'll explore how to produce metrics from Linux and Windows servers using an exporter utility and from applications using a client library, and how to configure Prometheus to fetch those metrics. Finally, you'll discover the query language PromQL, how you can use it to track the changes in metrics over time, and visualize all the metrics in a dashboard. When you've finished with the course, you’ll have the basic skills and knowledge of Prometheus needed to run a trial and evaluate it for your organization.
