How do you know your Clojure Microservice is doing what it is supposed to do? Don’t stay in the dark, add some metrics! Jo is going to share with you how you can easily add Prometheus metrics to your Clojure application and how to give it a go locally in a Docker Compose stack.

Takeaways:

  • Why you should use metrics to understand the well-being of production services

  • Basics about Prometheus, a monitoring system that scrapes and stores metrics and alerts you based on rules

  • How to add Prometheus metrics to a Clojure application and visualise it with Grafana

  • How everything fits together, checkout the repo and run the Docker Compose stack.
