Prometheus is nice. This script:
Generates this graph:
Which is rigged into this alarm:
And now we have another level of monitoring for our backups.
@sir So you're just using Prometheus's built-in graphs for metrics?
@amolith we have an intern working on a new dashboard software, but in general we rely on alarms, not graphs
@sir I'm interested to see what they come up with. I've been planning to use Prometheus with Grafana for alarms and historical metrics for a while but haven't gotten around to setting them up yet
@amolith used to have grafana set up but it's really fucking annoying
@sir In what way? I did set them up briefly to test a while ago and creating an efficient dashboard was certainly a pain but I didn't notice any other big deficiencies
