This section outlines the software and experience prerequisites for the workshop.

Software Requirements

The exact steps in this workshop have been tested on Ubuntu Linux 20.04. However, the overall procedure should be portable to other modern Linux distributions with few modifications. It is possible to follow many of the steps on macOS, *BSD, or Windows, but some steps will either not be applicable or will require modifications.

To follow this training, you will need to have a functioning Prometheus monitoring setup, such as the one we introduce in our free Introduction to Prometheus training.

Required Experience

You will need basic knowledge of Unix / Linux server administration and a basic understanding of Prometheus-based monitoring.
