3.3.4 The Prometheus Module

Prometheus is a systems monitoring and alerting toolkit that collects and stores metrics and other time series data from various sources and presents it in an easily retrievable manner.

The Prometheus module for Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment is pre-configured with rich monitoring of important systems inside a Kubernetes cluster.

The Prometheus module is deployed by the Helm module into a Kubernetes cluster. The Prometheus module is required by the Istio module.

Note

In this release, the Prometheus module should only be used in the context of an Istio module deployment.
