Blameless is excited to announce a new source for monitoring data for your SLIs and SLOs. Prometheus is an open source monitoring and alerting solution which is highly customizable.
As a leading provider of monitoring, Prometheus is a preferred integration for Blameless’ SLO Manager. The SLO Manager is a new service added to the Blameless platform. This service helps SRE and engineering teams proactively make data-driven decisions about reliability efforts.
With Blameless’ SLO Manager, teams can create distinct user journeys that correspond to their services. Teams will use these user journeys to craft SLIs, or service level indicators. These SLIs pull metrics from Prometheus and display the services performance by using the calculation of good events/valid events for a particular criteria.
The integration with Prometheus allows teams to monitor how they are performing against their service level objectives (SLO) on any metrics captured in their Prometheus monitoring system. Users journeys are created in Blameless to monitor SLOs against multiple SLIs mapped to the appropriate Prometheus metrics, serving as a signal for when to create an incident within Blameless based on the depleted error budget.
Here’s how teams can integrate Prometheus and Blameless.
To test the integration, you need to have at least one service created within the Service Registry.
