Eric Oestrich
Monitoring Your Elixir Application with Prometheus

Talk Description

Get under the hood of your application, with metrics! What is your slowest external call? What are your total daily interactions? Find out with Prometheus!

We’ll use Prometheus and Grafana to give us insights into your application. Prometheus will gather time series metrics, and Grafana will give a powerful display of them.

We’ll cover how to add instrumentation through the lens of a real-world application.

Finally, we'll get alerted about key metrics via the Prometheus AlertManager.


Eric Oestrich works at SmartLogic building applications with Elixir. In his spare time he works on ExVenture, a text based MMORPG engine. He also helps run the REST Fest Midwest unconference.
