Welcome to the Prometheus playground!
Our playground offers a fun and intuitive way to learn and practice with Prometheus — one of the most popular open-source monitoring tools.
The best part? You don’t have to go through the hassle of setting up and configuring a local development environment. Our playground runs entirely in your browser, so you can start learning immediately, avoiding long setup times or configuration headaches.
Prometheus is a popular open-source monitoring and alerting system used to monitor system performance and health and send alerts in case of issues. With Prometheus, you can gain a deeper understanding of what's happening with the systems, proactively detect issues and quickly respond to any anomalies, thereby improving system reliability, performance, and availability.
Prometheus collects metrics data by scraping targets that expose metrics through an HTTP endpoint and stores it in a time-series database. You can then use PromQL (Prometheus Query Language) to query and manipulate this data in real time and generate tables, graphs, and visualizations.
The metric data collected by Prometheus can be visualized using Grafana, an open-source metric analytics and visualization suite.
Prometheus has a large and active user base and is used in production by big corporations such as Red Hat and Google.
To help you get started, our playground comes preconfigured with a Kubernetes cluster and Prometheus.
You can use the playground for 1 hour. If required, you can extend the usage by 15 minutes by clicking on the Extend lab by 15m button, located next to the timer icon.
