  • Tools for frontend monitoring with Prometheus

  • Monitoring with Custom Metrics

    In case the Custom Metric is related to a job or a short-living script, consider using Pushgateway.
  • Bucketed data from jenkins?

    So my idea is to have a python script that buckets data and then publishes it again using pushtogateway:

    Is the cron job with a script for getting metric and pushing via the right way for this task?

    The push gateway is a relatively simple service. There’s one main entry point file (main.go) and an api file (api.go) both at 279 lines log. There’s probably a dozen or so api endpoints, but the key one is the one where you post metrics, defined here
  • "The Pushgateway is not an event store. [...] tracking something like release events has to happen with some event-logging framework."

    We are currently evaluating timeseries databases to build an internal tool for DORA metrics and just looking at prometheus. As tracking releases is more of a push based use case, I looked at pushgateway and the docs stated the following "The Pushgateway is not an event store. [...] tracking something like release events has to happen with some event-logging framework." here

  • Ask HN: Prometheus vs. StatsD / Telegraf
    5 projects | | 11 Apr 2021
    While I somehow understand Prometheus idea that pull is easier to scale than push I've had a bad luck with it.

    First of all Prometheus doesn't even consider monitoring of long-running jobs other than pull way (which didn't make sense for me). There is push gateway [0] but clients libraries seem to consider it only for short-lived jobs where you can send the metrics at the end [1]. It seems I couldn't "push" from long living jobs trivially

    Second when using it for example with django you have to be careful with how you handle multiprocessing that UWSGI/gunicorn does, see [2] - it has bitten me at leas once.

    Comparing to push model where I can just push metrics to [3] statsd_exporter directly and be done with it, but support for statsd is lacking both in terms of frameworks (everyone seems to be migrating to native clients...) and functionality (you've to do labeling basically manually [4])

    To sum up: Prometheus is really great when it works, until you try to go off-track (intentionally or not, see django [2]) then you see its all undiscovered and immature landscape


What are some alternatives?

When comparing fourkeys and pushgateway you can also consider the following projects:

DevOpsMetrics - A project to extract and process high performing DevOps metrics (DORA) from GitHub and Azure DevOps

statsd_exporter - StatsD to Prometheus metrics exporter


django-prometheus - Export Django monitoring metrics for

reliza-cli - CLI to interact with Reliza Hub

prometheus - The Prometheus monitoring system and time series database.

client_python - Prometheus instrumentation library for Python applications

json_exporter - A prometheus exporter which scrapes remote JSON by JSONPath

material-ui - MUI Core (formerly Material UI) is the React UI library you always wanted. Follow your own design system, or start with Material Design. [Moved to:]

metrics - Kubernetes metrics-related API types and clients
