Abstract
------------
Observability is an important part of building modern applications that are highly available and scalable. Prometheus is a set of tools used for gathering metrics and managing alerts. In this talk we’ll discuss the importance of observability and how Prometheus can be used to monitor Java applications. We’ll discuss how to install and configure Prometheus, how to use exporters to gather metrics from common software packages, and how to instrument your own Java applications.
