Prometheus is an open-source monitoring system and time-series database. Written in Go language, Prometheus is a natural member of the ecosystem around Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Prometheus is not just for monitoring Kubernetes applications; it also works for those in Mesos, Docker, OpenStack and other things.
