To integrate Proxy Server Systems and Prometheus with your monitoring system, reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Proxy Server Systems and Prometheus and how that can support your monitoring system.
A proxy server is a server application or appliance. It is a go-between for requests from clients when they ask for resources from servers that provide said resources. A proxy server gets a request from a client, and as they then request the intended resource on behalf of that client, it can result in the true origin of that request being hidden or masked.
Prometheus an open-source systems monitoring and alerting software. It was originally built at SoundCloud in 2012, and now has a very active developer and user community. Prometheus records real-time metrics in a time series database. It is built using a http pull model and has a flexible query language (PromQL) with real-time alerting. The Prometheus server actively pulls (scrapes) metrics from applications it monitors. This is in contrast to other tools such as Graphite, which passively waits for the applications to push their metrics.
Prometheus is composed of multiple components, such as; The Prometheus Server, Client Libraries and Exporters, Push Gateway, Alertmanager, and various support tools. MetricFire's Hosted Prometheus is maintained, updated, and hosted for ultimate ease of use. Setup is convenient and quick, which addresses common issues found with integrating and maintaining open source Prometheus.

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that offers infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. The platform allows you to use either Prometheus- or Graphite-as-a-Service and have your metrics displayed on aesthetically-pleasing Grafana dashboards.
MetricFire offers its users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, which is made up of three of the most popular open-source monitoring software services: Prometheus, Graphite, and Grafana. As well, plugins for a number of other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire works to boost the unique features of the open source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
Cloud and on Premise Monitoring
Whether to use Prometheus or Graphite is a great question. We’ve looked deeper into this decision in our blog article, Prometheus or Graphite. While Prometheus is a newer software that has a multidimensional data structure, Graphite is robust and sufficient. The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.
