Providing Prometheus as a service

I’m Paul Traylor with LINE Fukuoka’s Development Department where I focus on monitoring many servers used to support LINE Family Apps.

For most developers, it’s much more fun to focus on code and adding new features but when things are running poorly it’s useful to know why. Since it’s sometimes difficult to configure monitoring by yourself, it has been my responsibility to make it easier to use so that all services can be monitored for peak performance. As part of this, we developed Promgen to help maintain our Prometheus configuration and make it easier for developers to register monitoring targets or subscribe to alerts for any service they are responsible for.
