Hosted Prometheus


#1

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to configure the “Hosted Prometheus” service to pull data from specific endpoints? This is something you can typically do with Prometheus.

I couldn’t find much documentation about Hosted Prometheus on Grafana Cloud, but it looks like there only is a push endpoint: https://prometheus-us-central1.grafana.net/api/prom/push

Is there any way to configure the Hosted Prometheus solution to pull data for me?

Ok after reading the hosted-metrics part again, I can probably assume that I still need to run my own prometheus and configure a remote_write with the mentioned endpoint. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but this “Hosted Prometheus” isn’t really a prometheus replacement, but more like a prometheus mirror ?

well it’s a centralised prometheus with long term storage

Ok, so can I write to it with a standard Prometheus client?
