How It Works

The Sysdig Monitor and Sysdig backend are able to store and query Prometheus native metrics and labels. Additionally, users can use Sysdig in the same way that they use Prometheus. You can leverage Prometheus Query Language queries for dashboards and alerts, or the Prometheus API for scripted queries, as part of a DevOps workflow. This way, your investments in the Prometheus ecosystem can be preserved and extended while improving scale and security. Users can take advantage of the troubleshooting, correlation and support that we provide as part of Sysdig Monitor for a complete Prometheus monitoring solution.
