We're shipping Prometheus 2.0.0!

Prometheus has a simple and robust operational model that users quickly learn to love. Yet, the infrastructure space did not stand still and projects like Kubernetes and Mesos rapidly change how software is being deployed and managed. Monitored environments have become increasingly more dynamic.

Prometheus 2.x has a new and more performant time series database quickly got confirmed in practical benchmarks. The result is a significantly better performing Prometheus 2.0 with improvements along virtually all dimensions. Query latency is more consistent and it especially scales better in the face of high series churn. Resource consumption, as measured in different real-world production scenarios, also decreased significantly:
  • CPU usage reduced to 20% - 40% compared to Prometheus 1.8
  • Disk space usage reduced to 33% - 50% compared to Prometheus 1.8
  • Disk I/O without much query load is usually <1% on average


We also ship other Prometheus ecosystem products such as AlertManager and node_exporter.
