Prometheus is the mainstream monitoring tool created for monitoring highly dynamic container environments. However it can still be used to monitor traditional container-less infrastructures. At its core Prometheus has the Prometheus Server that is composed of three components. A time series database that stores all the monitored metrics. A data retrieval worker responsible for pulling these metrics from target resources and saving them in the databse. And finally a HTTP web server that can receive PromQL queries to display metrics data using the Prometheus Web UI or other external applications (i.e., Grafana).
