Prometheus Monitoring

Prometheus is third-party software used for gathering and processing monitoring data. AM exposes an endpoint which Prometheus uses to gather metrics from the AM instance. For more information about installing and running Prometheus, see the Prometheus documentation.

When enabled, AM makes the Prometheus-formatted metrics available at the /json/metrics/prometheus endpoint.

Configure Prometheus to monitor the AM endpoint, using the prometheus.yml configuration file. For more information on configuring Prometheus, see the Prometheus configuration documentation.


Prometheus provides monitoring and processing for the information provided by AM, but further analysis and visualization may be desired. In this case, you can use tools such as Grafana to create customized charts and graphs based on the information collected by Prometheus. For more information on installing and running Grafana, see the Grafana website.
