Today Prometheus is one of the standard tools used for monitoring and alerting. Like any other tool/library we use, there tend to be common mistakes we make as beginners. This presentation aims to highlight the flaws made and overlooked while using Prometheus. Few of them being, Are all your metrics coming up in Prometheus on time? Are you using the rate/increase function correctly? How do you get metric value as instant/time series when using PromQL? Why alerts are not getting triggered? Why is the latency of your query high? Is the choice of your labels correct? Let's make your journey of using Prometheus as your Monitoring buddy easier. Along with that presentation seeks to provide a crisp and handy checklist you can use while making your dashboards and creating alerts. This checklist would also help review the Prometheus queries for your colleagues, making the review process faster and your dashboards and alerts bug-free, functionally correct, and uniformly interpreted (at least from the Prometheus point of view).
