Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus

What is Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus?

  • A managed monitoring service for container environments.

  • You can monitor and alert on the performance of containerized workloads using the open-source PromQL without having to scale or manage the underlying infrastructure.

  • Automatically scale the ingestion, storage, alerting, and querying of operational metrics as workload increases.

  • Integrated with Amazon EKS, Amazon ECS, and AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry.

Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus Features

  • With Prometheus query language (PromQL), you can easily obtain performance visibility using a filter, aggregate, and alarm on metrics.

  • Supports multi-AZ replication within an AWS Region.

  • Collect and query metrics from container clusters on AWS and on-premises.


Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus Concepts

  • Workspace

    • A logical space dedicated to storage and querying of metrics.

    • Supports one or more workspaces in each Region.

    • Metrics ingested into a workspace can only be stored for 150 days.

    • Supports multiple rule files.

  • Rules

    • To use rules in Prometheus, you’ll need to create YAML rule files.

    • Each rules file is contained under its own namespace.

    • Rules are organized into rules groups within a rules file and are evaluated in order from top to bottom.

  • Recording rules

    • You can precompute frequently used or computationally expensive expressions and save the results as a new collection of time series.

    • Querying precomputed result is much faster than running the original expression.

  • Alerting rules

    • Create alert conditions based on PromQL and a threshold.

    • A notification is sent to the alert manager when a rule triggers the threshold and forwards it to Amazon SNS.

  • Alert manager

    • Supports deduplication, grouping, and routing of alerts to downstream receivers.

    • You can also silence and inhibit alerts.

    • Configuration file

      • Grouping – collects similar alerts into a single notification.

      • Inhibition – suppresses notifications if certain alerts are already firing.

      • Silences – mute alerts for a specified time.

  • Templating is stored in the same alert manager configuration file as your alert manager configuration.

  • Supports tagging for workspaces and rule groups namespaces.


Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus Pricing

  • You are charged based on metrics ingested, queried, and stored.

  • Metrics ingested and stored are only charged when you send metrics to Prometheus.

  • PromQL Query Samples Processed (QSP) is charged on a per-billion basis.

  • Storage fees are calculated depending on the compressed size of metric samples and metadata.

  • There are no charges for data transfer in.
