Prometheus Integration

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

OpsGenie is an alert and notification management solution that is highly complementary to Prometheus.

​What does OpsGenie offer for Prometheus users?

By using OpsGenie Prometheus Integration, you can forward Prometheus alerts to OpsGenie. OpsGenie can determine the right people to notify based on on-call schedules, using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When an alert is created in Prometheus, an alert will be created in OpsGenie automatically through the integration.
