Open-source Go projects categorized as Monitoring

Top 23 Go Monitoring Projects

  • prometheus

    The Prometheus monitoring system and time series database.

    Project mention: Building an Observability Stack with Docker | dev.to | 2024-02-15

    After that, you will set up a metrics server container. It will use Prometheus.io, an open-source monitoring and alerting toolkit designed to collect, store, and query time series data, making it a tool for monitoring your systems' performance and health through metrics.

  • cilium

    eBPF-based Networking, Security, and Observability

    Project mention: Cisco to Acquire Cloud Native Networking and Security Leader Isovalent | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-12-21

    They would have had to add a few externals to get to Graduated but it's definitely a minority:


  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

    Project mention: Lazydocker | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-07-18

    This does remind me of ctop as well: https://github.com/bcicen/ctop

    It also let's you look at containers, resource usage graphs, their logs and even do some actions through a TUI.

  • Telegraf

    The plugin-driven server agent for collecting & reporting metrics.

    Project mention: Current network throughput from total byte value? | /r/grafana | 2023-08-04

  • sampler

    Tool for shell commands execution, visualization and alerting. Configured with a simple YAML file.

    Project mention: Bus ETA | /r/commandline | 2023-11-16

    Hi ! I'm currently in the process of building myself dashboards using sampler and / or WTF. I want a section with the live ETA of some buses stop from STM. I know they have an SMS option so that may be a lead but i've figured there might be a better way using iBus or something. Thanks in advance !!

  • VictoriaMetrics

    VictoriaMetrics: fast, cost-effective monitoring solution and time series database

    Project mention: All you need is Wide Events, not "Metrics, Logs and Traces" | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-27
  • prometheus-operator

    Prometheus Operator creates/configures/manages Prometheus clusters atop Kubernetes

    Project mention: Smart-Cash project -Adding monitoring to EKS using Prometheus operator | dev.to | 2023-11-30

    The project repository for Prometheus-operator can be found here, The repo defines the CRDs and the controller. You can follow this documentation for the installation. which will require the creation of metrics exporters, node exporters, scrape configurations, etc.

  • nightingale

    An all-in-one observability solution which aims to combine the advantages of Prometheus and Grafana. It manages alert rules and visualizes metrics, logs, traces in a beautiful web UI.

    now if its more metric data you are using and want to do APM, prometheus is your man https://prometheus.io/, want to make prometheus your full time job? deploy cortex https://cortexmetrics.io/, honorable mention in the metrics space, Zabbix, https://www.zabbix.com/ I've seen use cases of zabbix going way beyond its intended use its a fantastic tool

  • kube-state-metrics

    Add-on agent to generate and expose cluster-level metrics.

    Project mention: Do we have any Prometheus metric to get the kubernetes cluster-level CPU/Memory requests/limits? | /r/kubernetes | 2023-07-11

  • opencost

    Cost monitoring for Kubernetes workloads and cloud costs

    Project mention: Show HN: Cloud Costs Monitoring in Docker | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-11-21

    OpenCost is an open source implementation for Kubernetes cost monitoring and now cloud cost monitoring for AWS, Azure, and GCP. The project makes all of this data accessible via an API and user interface. While discussing the idea of running OpenCost on platforms besides Kubernetes we realized that with this new Cloud Costs feature there are users who want API access to their cloud billing data without needing to run on Kubernetes. I opened the Issue OpenCost without Kubernetes #2268 and as luck would have it, we had our internal Hackathon last week.

    If you're not familiar with OpenCost, it's the open source CNCF project for monitoring Kubernetes and cloud spending. It's a Golang implementation of the OpenCost Specification for monitoring Kubernetes cloud costs. It has an optional web UI and you can also run it as a Prometheus metrics exporter. The code is all at https://github.com/opencost/opencost and you can learn more about the project at https://opencost.io

  • monitoror

    Unified monitoring wallboard — Light, ergonomic and reliable monitoring for anything.

  • scrutiny

    Hard Drive S.M.A.R.T Monitoring, Historical Trends & Real World Failure Thresholds

    Project mention: Can I get different aggregates with a single query? | /r/influxdb | 2023-12-05

    I've noticed a quite nice feature in Scrutiny, where older disk temp data is lower resolution than recent data. In queries it would probably look like that:

  • opentelemetry-collector

    OpenTelemetry Collector

    Project mention: OpenTelemetry Collector Anti-Patterns | dev.to | 2024-02-26

    But how does one monitor a Collector? The OTel Collector already emits metrics for the purposes of its own monitoring. These can then be sent to your Observability backend for monitoring.

  • mtail

    extract internal monitoring data from application logs for collection in a timeseries database

    Project mention: i need to visualize all logs from remote dir | /r/sysadmin | 2023-05-19

    You can do that with something like mtail. Basically write expressions that match your logs and produce metrics.

  • ali

    Generate HTTP load and plot the results in real-time

  • WorkOS
