Adding Prometheus monitoring for ECS

We’ve deployed on all our ECS managed staging clusters a prometheus monitoring system.

This allows us to have a better monitoring for our ECS nodes and adds the opportunity to create custom metrics to monitor your applications.

Thanks to alert manager it’s also possible to setup custom alerts that will notify us via slack (critical/warnings) and via OpsGenie (critical).

The Prometheus setup is constantly monitored using a DeadManSwitch to OpsGenie.

If you’d like to access the Prometheus metrics you can provide us with a public IP that you want to use to access them.

Some documentation on how to monitor your application can be found here:
