Prometheus and PromQL are widely adopted, and an increasing number of engineering teams are either migrating to use Prometheus metrics or use the Prometheus client libraries from day one. Migrations are difficult and at scale require significant engineering. This high barrier can deter organizations and place roadblocks on the way to becoming wholly instrumented with Prometheus metrics. Organizations also face challenges moving certain use cases from a metrics push model to Prometheus, such as exposing metrics from CI and CD, batch jobs and short running tasks. Using histograms at scale efficiently across many teams all using similar RPC libraries and migrating from a primarily percentile driven set of latency metrics that used to be aggregated centrally can be challenging without the right guidance for developers. Emma and Ben will provide best practices around migrating to Prometheus and share lessons and challenges from DoorDash’s migration journey from StatsD to Prometheus.
