Video - Setting up Prometheus and Grafana with Elixir

Alex Koutmos, creator of the PromEx library and buddy from the radio show gave us some of his time to help set up Grafana and Prometheus metrics for our application Noted. This was an extremely tight path to a lot of observability. PromEx is very kind to you as a developer. Leveraging the common telemetry API to make something really compelling. And then Alex has spent the effort so you get a whole bunch of useful default dashboards rather than needing to decide up front what you want. I thought this was quite the well-packed hour. Thank you Alex for coming on the stream to do this. And for preparing!

The branch is on Github as lawik/noted:prom_ex and the video is below.

Also available on the YouTube channel.

You can find more by Alex at, and you can tell him how you really feel @akoutmos on Twitter. PromEx is prom_ex on Hex and that’ll lead you to docs and repo.
