Prometheus Genesis Kit
This is a Genesis Kit for the Prometheus Boshrelease. It deploys a single-VM prometheus deployment, with all jobs colocated on the single VM, for a smaller footprint. As more metrics are consumed/monitored, and additional services are added, this node will likely need to scale out to increase its I/O throughput first. If possible, use SSD-backed storage for its persistent disk pool in your Cloud Config.
Generally, you will have one prometheus VM per environment being deployed/monitored, each prometheus would then monitor the BOSH deployments + services of that environment.
Additionally, you will want to ensure that the node_exporter is included in your BOSH Runtime Config as an add-on, so that all BOSH VMs report their system health metrics back to Prometheus.
To use it, you don't even need to clone this repository! Just run the following (using Genesis v2):
# create a prometheus-deployments repo using the latest version of the prometheus kit genesis init --kit prometheus # create a prometheus-deployments repo using v1.0.0 of the prometheus kit genesis init --kit prometheus/1.0.0 # create a my-prometheus-configs repo using the latest version of the prometheus kit genesis init --kit prometheus -d my-prometheus-configs
Once created, refer to the deployment repository README for information on provisioning and deploying new environments.
