If the components that you want to monitor are already deployed, then skip to step 2. Otherwise, follow one or both of these steps, depending on your use case:

  • Deploy one or more instances of Aerospike Database Enterprise Edition. For instructions about deploying an Aerospike database, see "System Overview".
  • Install one or more instances of an Aerospike outbound connector. For instructions about deploying outbound connectors, see "Streaming from Aerospike".

Install the components of Layer 1

Install an instance of Aerospike Prometheus Exporter for each Aerospike database that you want to monitor.

You can download and install Aerospike Prometheus Exporter from a package, or you can clone the GitHub repository and compile from source.

Install Prometheus.

See the page "Installation" in the Prometheus documentation.

If you want to send alerts from Prometheus, install Prometheus Alert Manager.

Instructions are in this component's GitHub repository.

Install Grafana as Layer 2
