Alain and I also worked on this project that you might find useful:
It is a Docker Compose environment to showcase the Prometheus graphs that
we worked on. There's still a missing update, so do please check back soon,
but the majority of what we've worked on is housed in that repo. If you
decide to move forward with Prometheus, you can use the curl scripts
provided in the repo to upload the charts and all preset alerts into your
Grafana environment. If you use the GUI to upload the graphs, you'll lose
all preset visual thresholds and alerts, but still keep all completed
Now that I remembered it was missing an update, we should push the new
features out sooner rather than later. The new update includes better
descriptive text, alert text, and alert fixes.
Hope it helps!
