Join Grafana Labs technical experts for this introductory session on Prometheus. In this webinar, we will start with a quick introduction to the open source project that’s the de facto standard for monitoring modern, cloud native systems. At the end of the session, a dashboard will be built from scratch. Questions will be answered in a public Slack Channel during the entirety of GrafanaCONline.

During this webinar you’ll learn about:

  • What is Prometheus?
  • Starting a Prometheus server and adding targets to monitor
  • PromQL, Prometheus’s native querying language
  • Prometheus-specific features such as pull versus push model and service discovery
  • Prometheus metrics and its data model
  • Creating alerts with Prometheus Alertmanager

Attendee prerequisite: This is a beginner’s session for all those who are familiar with Grafana and just getting started with Prometheus.

About Prometheus

Prometheus is a popular system for collecting and querying whitebox and blackbox metrics, especially in the cloud native world of Kubernetes and ephemeral instances. Since its graduation in the CNCF two years ago, Prometheus has proven to be one of the most widely-adopted time series databases today with over 150+ third-party integrations and massive deployments in Fortune 100 organizations.
