Prometheus does not just limit us to recording metrics. One of Prometheus's core functionalities is the ability to define and route alerts to any alert management endpoint we define -- or, in the case of this Hands-On Lab, Prometheus's own sideproject, Alertmanager.

Once we have our desired alerting thresholds defined, we need to set up our routes and receivers for the Alertmanager, ensuring our notifications are going to the right end user at the correct frequency and with the right information.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
