Both Jaeger and Prometheus are popular open-source application performance monitoring tools. While Jaeger is an end-to-end distributed tracing tool, Prometheus is used as a time-series database for monitoring metrics. Let's dive in to explore their key features and differences.
OpenTelemetry and Prometheus are both open-source projects under Cloud Native Computing Foundation. In this article, let us understand the key differences between the two projects and explore their advantages and shortcomings.
Both DataDog and Prometheus are application monitoring tools aimed to improve application performance. While Datadog is a cloud-based SaaS solution, meaning there's no need to install or maintain any infrastructure, Prometheus is an open-source tool that requires manual download and installation on your infrastructure. Let us compare DataDog and Prometheus to see which tool suits
Prometheus and the Elasticsearch stack are both used for monitoring applications. But while Prometheus is primarily meant to monitor metrics, the Elasticsearch stack or the ELK stack is mainly used to collect, store, analyze, and visualize application logs. In this article, we will see what Prometheus and ELK stack is and compare their differences.
Prometheus and InfluxDB are open-source projects created to make application performance monitoring a breeze. That is, of course, if you choose the option that covers your entire observability scope.
Monitoring tools are only as good as the range and visibility they offer admins into applications’ performance. Prometheus is a metrics monitoring tool that provides a pull-based system to collect and monitor time-series samples. Once the data is collected and stored, you can use Prometheus Queries to interact with the data: select and aggregate across the provided dimensions.
In this blog, we explain how we enable high availability Prometheus using Cortex and Cassandra. This provides a single pane of view across multiple clusters - which enables visualising all monitoring metrics in one go.
PromCon is one of the premier conferences on Prometheus and related tools like Grafana. This is held every year where developers from around the world gather to learn the latest in monitoring technologies.
In this blog, I will discuss about how to set up Prometheus and Grafana in EKS and how to monitor Python based applications using Prometheus.
