Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • Onboard AI - Learn any GitHub repo in 59 seconds
  • Revelo Payroll - Free Global Payroll designed for tech teams
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • helm-charts

    Prometheus community Helm charts

    Since Nginx-ingress uses annotations for Prometheus, I installed the server without the Kubernetes operator.

  • keda

    KEDA is a Kubernetes-based Event Driven Autoscaling component. It provides event driven scale for any container running in Kubernetes

    I decided to go with KEDA because:

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • metrics-server

    Scalable and efficient source of container resource metrics for Kubernetes built-in autoscaling pipelines.

    It's an autoscaler with a metrics server (so I don't need to install 2 different tools).

  • http-add-on

    Add-on for KEDA to scale HTTP workloads

    KEDA ships with an HTTP add-on to enable HTTP scaling.
