Updated Prometheus & Grafana monitoring stack - update

As announced in our previous update, we have migrated our cluster-monitoring stack by using the new stable/prometheus-operator as base chart. By now these updates have already been rolled out across staging clusters.

Initially we planned to do a phased roll-out and merge the separate Prometheus deployment for application monitoring to a later date. However, during further testing we uncovered a couple of issues with that approach and concluded it’s better to roll out the full update at once.

To make the migration process as painless as possible, you don’t have to take initial action. We make sure that all ServiceMonitors and PrometheusRules you have defined are transfered to the new setup.

Please refer to our documentation for more information on the Prometheus & Grafana monitoring for more info and how to use the new features.
