  • Prometheus Backfilling: Recording Rules and Alerts | 2021-02-24 | 2021-02-23
    For many Prometheus users using recording rules and alerts, a known issue is how both are only generated on the fly at runtime. This limitation has two downsides. First of all, any new recording rule will not be applied to your historical data. Secondly and even more troubling, you cannot even test your rules and alerts against your historical data. | 2021-02-23

  • Architecting your Cloud Native Infrastructure | 2021-02-13
    In any such scenarios, a tool like Prometheus can act as the time series database to collect all the metrics for you along with something like OpenTelemetry to expose metrics from the application and the various tools using inbuilt exporters, Alertmanager to send notifications and alerts to multiple channels, Grafana as the dashboard to visualize everything at one place and so on giving users a complete visibility on the infrastructure as a whole.
