Usage Engine can be set up to use metrics, as a way to track the performance of your deployment. Usage Engine can be integrated with Prometheus, a tool used to monitor and collect metrics from pods and containers located within your  deployment. After extracting these metrics, they can then be used for:

  • Autoscaling your EC Deployment
  • Visualized as graphs using Grafana

As an alternative to the Prometheus agent you can also publish your own metrics, in the same way you publish your own Information Model (MIM) in workflows.
