Prometheus’s open-source monitoring and alerting toolkit is designed specifically for containers and microservices. Prometheus monitoring enables you to configure real-time notifications and run flexible queries, and can be used to gain visibility into your containerized workloads, APIs, and other distributed services and applications. Furthermore, Prometheus assists with cloud-native security by detecting irregular traffic or activity that could potentially escalate into an attack.
