As part of the training, we will learn how to work with monitoring tools based on the properties of the Prometheus tool, from the configuration of data collection on measured systems, through the transport layer to use and storage in a data repository. Prometheus for metric data processing, Loki for log data processing, Traps for profiling data processing, Tempo for trace data processing, Alermanager for alert processing and Grafana for data visualization.

Furthermore, we will focus on the possibilities of data evaluation and, if the input conditions are met, their subsequent processing using a communication interface, automatic processing by an orchestra tool, or analysis in expert systems. We will learn how to format queries into metric and log databases, their use in defining visualizations and notifications.

During the training, we will show sample examples of data collection settings on a real infrastructure and show how to access stored data, which will provide you with a good basis for further use of modern monitoring systems based on the Prometheus family of tools.
