Why use Mimir?
How does Mimir work?
Store Prometheus metrics
Use Prometheus to scrape metrics from your applications and remote write these metrics to Mimir, or use the Grafana Agent, the Prometheus Agent, or other Prometheus remote write compatible software to send data directly.
Run it easily, without sacrificing scalability or reliability
Mimir clusters automatically; there’s no need to shard, replicate, or rebalance by hand. To increase capacity, just add new instances to the cluster. Mimir does the rest.
Visualize in Grafana
Mimir enables users to run queries, create new data via recording rules, and set up alerting rules across multiple tenants, leveraging tenant federation. All of this can be tied together with the Grafana dashboards and alerting you know and love.
