The Prometheus conference — November 08 - 09 in Munich

Talk abstract

Why Is It so Big? Analysing the Memory Consumption of Prometheus

Speaker(s): Bryan Boreham

A large Prometheus instance may take 100GB of RAM, or even more. In this talk I will walk through the main internal data structures that contribute to that size.

This talk should be of interest to anyone who would like their Prometheus to be a bit smaller. Attendees will take away potential changes in configuration or workload that make the size go down.
