Prometheus scrape target charm

prometheus-scrape-target-k8s supports metrics aggregation from applications outside any Juju model.

The charm facilitates using the Canonical Observability Stack even for use cases where the metrics endpoints do not originate from other charmed operators.

Generally, you should only use Prometheus Scrape Target when you only need metrics or for some reason you cannot deploy Grafana Agent, which is a more general, robust approach for observing external workloads. See how to set up COS Lite with Grafana Agent to monitor uncharmed workloads.

This charm is:

  • an optional part of the COS Lite bundle
  • intended to be used together with prometheus-k8s
