Prometheus is an open-source monitoring & alerting solution that collects metrics data and stores it in a time-series database. Prometheus collects metrics by scraping targets who expose metrics through an HTTP endpoint.

The folks at SoundCloud created it, and in 2016 it joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

Prometheus’s core features include:

  • PromQL – Flexible query language
  • Collects data via a pull model
  • Multi-dimensional model
  • Targets can be defined statically or learned dynamically via service-discovery
  • Built-in dashboarding & visualization
  • Generating Alerts/Notifications via AlertManager

This course will give you a strong foundation for installing, configuring, operating and managing a Prometheus server. In addition, it will help you prepare for the Prometheus Certified Associate(PCA) exam. Each topic will contain an in-depth lecture and a hands-on lab to reinforce what was covered during the lecture. At the end of the course, a final mock exam will prepare you for the questions seen when taking the PCA exam.

In this course, you will learn the following:

  • Observability basics
  • Prometheus architecture
  • Prometheus Installation/Configuration
  • Metrics Overview
  • Prometheus Exporters
  • PromQL Selectors/Modifiers/Operators/Functions/Quantiles
  • Dashboarindg & Visualization
  • Application Instrumentation
  • Service Discovery
  • Push Gateway
  • Alerting(Alertmanager & notifications)
  • Monitoring Kubernetes

I'm not a security specialist, but I have realized that the course explains very well every topic and you can use the labs in every lesson to practice. It's a hard certification but using this course I could learn every element step by step and test myself if I was ready using the exam simulators, and I was great because the simulators are very close to a real exam! using this course I got the certification in my first attempt!

Thank you so much Mumshad Mannambeth for the awesome course, I couldn't find better than yours. These courses are well designed with awesome practice labs and have more than the required content to learn and pass the Kubernetes exams. Not sure how you are managing them with these much of low cost.
