Every production system needs monitoring. Things get interesting when there are hundreds of PostgreSQL instances with automated cloud deployments. There are multiple solutions for collecting PostgreSQL metrics. Grafana is a popular choice for visualization and analytics of time series data. Prometheus is a convenient tool to collect and store metrics of multiple PostgreSQL instances. Alertmanager can be integrated to handle and distribute notification when defined alerts based on real-time metrics are triggered.
This talk will be about components, architecture, concepts and best practices. Michał and Rafał have been working with the duo in the large scale map-making system in TomTom since 2016 and would like to share their experience.
