About Cortex

Cortex is the horizontally scalable, durable, and fast Prometheus-compatible monitoring system.

Cortex v1.0 brings production-readiness to a wider audience, with production documentation, pre-canned Grafana dashboards and Prometheus alerts, and an easy-to-use “single process” mode.

Cortex has been in production for over three years, mostly at companies that employ the maintainers, such as Grafana Labs. It is now ready to go into production more widely.
