Slice and dice your metric data to quickly gain insights into any component within ephemeral infrastructure. Track tens of thousands of metrics out-of-the-box with open source-based integrations like Prometheus or Logz.io’s Telemetry Collector, while easily filtering out unneeded data to reduce costs.
Find a sudden change in your metrics? Quickly investigate what caused the change by correlating your metrics with the relevant:
“It was pretty simple to do and it basically took about 10 minutes to get a minimally viable connection and product up.”
These tools don’t require any upfront cost or lead to any vendor lock-in, and can be a great solution for those looking for a fast solution to small scale cloud monitoring. Prometheus also natively integrates with Kubernetes and other popular cloud-native technologies – making it easy to get started. However, infrastructure monitoring with Prometheus can become time-consuming as data volumes grow. This oftentimes requires elaborate architectures to horizontally scale across multiple Prometheus servers – due to Prometheus’ single node architecture. Learn more about building a scalable Prometheus architecture.
Prometheus-as-a-Service allows users to use the world’s most popular monitoring tool – Prometheus – as a fully-managed cloud service. This enables you to utilize what makes Prometheus great while also benefiting from features such as scalable and zero maintenance data storage, enhanced visualization capabilities, and data correlation with logs and traces to unify observability in one place.
We choose Prometheus as the core of our infrastructure monitoring solution because we believe it’s the best and most popular open source tool for collecting and aggregating metrics data. At Logz.io, we aim to make the leading open source monitoring tools more effective and easier to use.
After surfacing an issue within your metrics, you can quickly dive into your logs and traces to begin troubleshooting the root cause. With Logz.io, your logs, metrics, and traces are all in the same place, so you can correlate across the data to investigate problems faster.
