Deploying the Grafana Mimir monitoring mixin
Grafana Mimir exposes a
/metrics endpoint returning Prometheus metrics. You can configure your Prometheus server to scrape Grafana Mimir or you can use the built-in functionality of the Helm chart to automatically send these metrics to a remote.
The endpoint is exposed on the Mimir HTTP server address / port which can be customized through
-server.http-listen-port CLI flags or their respective YAML config options.
Dashboards and alerts
Grafana Mimir is shipped with a comprehensive set of production-ready Grafana dashboards and alerts to monitor the state and health of a Mimir cluster.
Dashboards provide both a high-level and in-depth view of every aspect of a Grafana Mimir cluster. You can take a look at all the available dashboards in this overview.
Alerts allow you to monitor the health of a Mimir cluster. For each alert, we provide detailed runbooks to further investigate and fix the issue.
The requirements documentation lists prerequisites for using the Grafana Mimir dashboards and alerts.
The installation instructions show available options to install Grafana Mimir dashboards and alerts.
