Learn Prometheus & Grafana from BASIC to ADVANCE level. Complete Prometheus Guide to Master DevOps Infra Monitoring

“Prometheus is an open-source tool used for event monitoring and alerting.”

We learn the basics of Prometheus so that you can get started as soon as possible, and to follow the exercises, try them out for yourself and you can see them working.

In this course, we will quickly build a bare-bones Prometheus server from scratch, in the cloud, and on your own Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

What’s included in the course?

  • Complete Prometheus concepts explained from Scratch to ADVANCE with Real-Time implementation.
  • Each and every Prometheus concept is explained with HANDS-ON examples.
  • Includes each and every, even thin detail of Prometheus.
  • For every concept, first, we will cover its theoretical stuff, followed by its running example.
  • Include even those concepts, the explanation to which is not very clear even in Prometheus’ Official Documentation.


  • In-and-out of Functions, Operators, Clauses, etc, in Prometheus Query Language (PromQL).
  • Instrument the Python or Go applications to expose custom metrics with Client Libraries.
  • Dynamically add or remove scrape targets using Service Discovery.
  • Recording Rules.
  • Monitor the Amazon Cloud (AWS) with Prometheus.
  • Creating an end-to-end Routing Tree for Alerting systems.
  • *Exclusive*- Create your own Custom Exporter
  • Integration with many Alert Notifiers – Gmail, PagerDuty, Slack.
  • How to scrape from batch jobs using Pushgateway.
  • Build monitoring & alerting design pattern of a Real-Time case study using Prometheus.
  • Build value-added dashboards with GRAFANA.
  • Learn Best practices / Do’s & Don’t to follow while monitoring Real-Time DevOps Projects.

After completing this course, you can start working on any Prometheus project with full confidence.

What you’ll learn

  • Learn Full In & Out of Prometheus toolkit with proper HANDS-ON examples from scratch.
  • Start with the implementation of Prometheus core concepts – Architecture, Installation, PromQL, Exporters, Functions, Operators, etc.
  • Using Grafana to Visualize Prometheus Metrics.
  • Create custom metrics from complicated queries and save them as Recording Rules
  • Pushgateway, Service Discovery, Recording Rules, Routing Trees, Create Custom Exporter, HTTP API, and many more…
