The new Prometheus exporter plugin for Discourse makes Discourse spit out data that Prometheus can consume and then make cool graphs. Check out the description linked above, if you haven’t already.
That data doesn’t help much if you don’t have Prometheus installed. You can head over to https://prometheus.io/ to download, install, and configure the Prometheus, or, for $100 I will:
- install the Prometheus plugin on your Discourse instance
- Install Prometheus in a Docker container on your server
- Configure Prometheus to read data from your Discourse
When that is done, you can point your browser to http://your.server.com:9090/ and start figuring out how to make the most of the data. If your site uses https, your browser will insist on using https for port 9090, so you’ll need to create a cname for your server or access it by the IP number.
