The Prometheus conference — August 25 - 26 in Berlin

Talk abstract

The History of Prometheus at SoundCloud

Speaker: Tobias Schmidt

The way SoundCloud monitors its services and infrastructure has dramatically changed over the last couple of years. Monitoring, alerting, and being on-call is now deeply ingrained in every engineering team and we have learned a lot on the way.

This talk will describe our transition from an ops team to a "you build it, you own it" approach, why we needed something like Prometheus, as well as how Prometheus helped us to achieve that and highlight a few success and failure stories.
