About the Prometheus server category

This category covers the Prometheus server.

Feel free to ask questions about:

  • Prometheus configuration and deployment
  • Service discovery
  • Relabeling
  • Scraping
  • TSDB (storage)
  • Recording rules
  • promtool

I can see Prometheus list the pods using service discovery but it can’t scrape metrics from each pod, it says down. Do i have to install kube-state-metrics to get each pod metrics rather than using service discovery?

Are those pods instrumented and are running the metrics listener on port 443?

These are our application pods, Isn’t prometheus temporarily saves metrics in /metrics with random port?
