Install Prometheus : One Click Deploy
Cloud-Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) manages many open-source projects, including Prometheus. In addition to monitoring functionality, it is integrated with a wide variety of systems natively and by using plugins. A CNCF hosted the project, Kubernetes container orchestration engine, uses it as the default monitoring solution. Prometheus contains various components that work together to track and report on the health, performance, and behavior of the system. Data is collected primarily through scraping metrics exposed by instrumented apps and services in plaintext via HTTP endpoints.
In this section, we’ll explain how to deploy Prometheus with one click on VPSie platform.
