Playing with Fire: Prometheus Tips to Avoid Getting Burned
Prometheus is a powerful metrics-based monitoring system for the cloud-native world. While it allows flexible monitoring of your services and infrastructure, if you aren’t aware of the potential pitfalls, you‘re playing with fire that can consume your engineers and your apps.
In this talk, Prometheus co-founder Julius Volz will discuss potential pitfalls of Prometheus-based monitoring and provide the most important best practices to avoid getting burned and get the most from your cloud native monitoring. And George Hamilton of Chronosphere will show you how Chronosphere’s cloud-native observability platform helps you quickly implement those best practices.
Julius Volz co-founded the Prometheus monitoring system and originally led the project to success at SoundCloud and beyond. He now focuses on growing the Prometheus community, started PromCon, the first conference around Prometheus, and helps companies use and adapt Prometheus through his company PromLabs. Before creating Prometheus at SoundCloud, Julius was a Site Reliability Engineer at Google. Julius loves teaching Prometheus concepts and has led many in-person and online live training sessions for companies and at industry events.
