Prometheus Alternatives

Prometheus is described as 'open-source systems monitoring and alerting toolkit originally built at SoundCloud. Since its inception in 2012, many companies and organizations have adopted Prometheus, and the project has a very active developer and user community' and is an app in the system & hardware category. There are more than 50 alternatives to Prometheus for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Online / Web-based, Mac, Windows and Self-Hosted solutions. The best alternative is Kibana. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Graylog or Open Web Analytics. Other great apps like Prometheus are Datadog, Logstash, InfluxDB and Grafana Loki.

Prometheus alternatives are mainly Web Log Analyzers but may also be Network Monitors or Uptime Monitor Services. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Prometheus.

    Kibana is a web interface to present metrics. It's not an alerting system. ELK-Stack with X-Pack is more similar.
