Prometheus is a popular open source monitoring tool for cloud-native architectures. Enterprises running cloud-native applications in production have found a combination of Prometheus + Sysdig delivers a more scalable, secure, feature-rich monitoring solution to meet the needs of large, dynamic environments.
This white paper explains the twelve ways that Sysdig extends the capabilities of Prometheus for enterprise users, including:
- Automated metric collection, extensive metric format support, visualizations, and query language support.
- Correlation of metrics & events from Docker, Kubernetes, and more, across distributed microservices.
- Collection and auto-tagging of JMX and StatsD metrics without the need for unique instrumentation or exporters.
- Dynamic topology mapping, metric and event alerting, system call captures from alerts for deep troubleshooting and forensics.
