Built primarily for monitoring containerized workloads, Prometheus is a popular tool for collecting time series data from instrumented jobs using an open, vendor-neutral, text-based exposition format.
The Elastic Stack can securely ingest operational data from multiple sources with ease. View your metrics across geographically dispersed Prometheus instances, unify your Prometheus metrics with your logs and APM data in Elasticsearch, and correlate them all in Kibana. Read more about the benefits of running Prometheus with Elastic at scale.
Aggregate, correlate, and visualize all your operational data in Elasticsearch however you want. Prometheus metrics are only one part of what makes your containers and clusters observable. Avoid operational silos by bringing your Prometheus data together with logs and traces. Learn more about observability with the Elastic Stack. Watch how to augment Prometheus metrics with logs and APM data.
Monitoring Kubernetes clusters with multiple Prometheus servers? No problem. Consolidate data from hundreds of Prometheus instances and achieve a global view of data coming from all endpoints with a plug-and-play experience.
Collect and store all of your Prometheus metrics in Elasticsearch for as long as they’re valuable to you. Unlock insights into your environments by analyzing your historical data for trends and patterns.
Annotate your metrics the way you want. Trace IDs, request IDs, container IDs, version numbers, etc. will always tell you more about what’s happening in your systems. Read more about how Elastic handles high cardinality samples.
Fine tune permissions to your Prometheus metrics and other operational data using role-based and attribute-based access controls. With Elastic, you can rest assured that your data travels securely regardless of how large and distributed your environments are. Learn more about user authorization, TLS and other security features in Elastic.
Capture and ship metrics using the Prometheus module for Metricbeat.
Alternatively, you can connect Metricbeat directly to your Prometheus exporters and push gateways. Learn more about the options for running Elasticsearch with Prometheus.
