Four Signs It’s Time to Level up Prometheus
Prometheus was developed in 2012 in response to the growing need for cloud-native monitoring services. Its efficient data store and ease of use have made it the de facto open source metrics monitoring solution. By storing data locally on disk, Prometheus is great for short-term use cases. However, when storing and querying against longer-term (and larger-scale) data, it can easily become overwhelmed.
Are your engineers struggling to locate monitoring data quickly? Do you need to retain more data for longer periods of time? Join Gibbs Cullen and Peter Simkins as they discuss the four signs that it’s time to level up Prometheus by focusing on key measurements around your monitoring solution: efficiency, reliability, scalability and cost.
Attendees will be armed with the knowledge they need to answer critical questions around their existing Prometheus setups and whether it’s time to consider a Prometheus-compatible solution built for massive scale. By focusing on four key indicators, attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to:
- Access monitoring data more quickly and efficiently
- Improve reliability to keep mission-critical services up and running
- Increase scale to retain more data for longer periods
- Keep monitoring costs under control
Gibbs Cullen is a product solutions manager at Chronosphere and makes it possible for the community to understand the concepts behind Prometheus and using M3 as a long-term storage option, in addition to helping the community with best practices in alerting, monitoring and configuring their deployment of Prometheus and M3 in Kubernetes. Prior to Chronosphere, she was a product manager for AWS.
Peter Simkins is an engineer at Chronosphere who entered the observability space with 10 years of experience at Disney, leveraging many technology solutions across ~50 unique business units. After several years in the APM monitoring space, he is excited to work with some of Chronosphere’s largest enterprise organizations in the world to solve observability through modern Open Source (OSS) based solutions.
