DevOps Playground #18 – All Hands on Prometheus

Earlier this year we had our 18th DevOps Playground focusing on the very powerful monitoring tool – Prometheus, that has been gaining a lot of attention in recent years.

At the event, we first looked at a brief history of Prometheus, then our participants learned how to setup and start a Prometheus server, configure targets and basic alerts. We’ve also looked at PromQL, the powerful query language, and learned the most basic functions, and expressions we can use to get started on using Prometheus.

Following this video you should be able to run through this introduction to Prometheus from the comfort of your home!

For the next playground we will be focusing on managing micro-services on Kubernetes using Istio.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
