Use external Prometheus without federation


I opened the following issue:

The response was that I should deploy Prometheus from stable/prometheus. So then how do I configure mixer to forward metrics to my other Prometheus? Apparently I can federate but I don’t know why I would opt to have 2 Prometheis for 1 cluster. So how can I configure without federation?



@msoule you can setup a Prometheus instance and configure it to scrape the Mixer for istio metrics. I did that using prometheus-operator, but I don’t see any reasons why it wouldn’t work with stable/prometheus. You can apply this config to your prometheus to work as the one provided by istio helm charts.

Hope it helps!
