Over recent years, Prometheus has become established across our teams as a firm favourite for capturing metrics, usually used with Grafana for visualisation. It is our default choice for monitoring on premise systems and to supplement cloud platform metrics systems such Azure Monitor and Application Insights or AWS CloudWatch Metrics. It has a highly versatile model, which has led to a rich ecosystem of exporters_ which provide a way for Prometheus to collect metrics from almost any source, including infrastructure, databases and message queues, and application/business metrics. Prometheus also supports alerting via the alert manager component using a built-in query syntax and rules engine.
