Prometheus Integration

Prometheus is an open-source systems monitoring and alerting toolkit originally built at SoundCloud.


​What does Opsgenie offer Prometheus users?

Use Opsgenie's Prometheus Integration to forward Prometheus alerts to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When an alert is created in Prometheus, an alert is created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.
