Hi I’m new here and I’m not familiar with the domain language, apologize for any imprecisions.
I’m trying to use prometheus + grafana to monitor an external batch job to which I have no access nor control. The only feedback I get from the job is a log with a unix timestamp of last execution and number of errors.
I’m starting scraping the log to send the values to our prometheus cluster but I’m not sure how to generate readable metrics.
Can I expose to prometheus not only a metric like “number of errors” but also the date when this happened?
