Welcome to 2020! (We’re a little slow with that on the Loki team.) To kick off the year we are releasing Loki 1.3! Anyone running Loki in microservices mode will be excited by this release as it introduces the Loki Query Frontend. (If you aren’t using microservices, be patient – good things will be coming your way soon.) The query frontend sits in front of the queriers and allows sharding queries based on time.

The Cortex project, a horizontally scalable Prometheus implementation and CNCF project, is more than three years old and shows no sign of slowing down. Right now, there are a lot of things going on in Cortex, but sometimes it’s not clear why we’re doing them. So I want to provide some clarity for both the Cortex community – and the wider Prometheus community – regarding our intentions, especially with regards to the Thanos Project.

As the open-source monitoring system Prometheus grew, so did the need to grow its capacity in a way that is multi-tenant and horizontally-scalable, along with the ability to handle infinite amounts of long-term storage. So in 2016, Julius Volz and Tom Wilkie (who is now at Grafana Labs) started Project Frankenstein, which was eventually renamed Cortex.

You probably missed it. Don’t feel bad. It was just one small paragraph, buried in the GitLab 11.9 Omnibus Release Notes: Grafana is now bundled in our Omnibus package, making it easier than ever to understand how your instance is performing. “Omnibus” is what GitLab calls its main installation package, and “Grafana” is the time-series visualization software, but what does this paragraph even mean?

Grafana by default uses sqlite3 as a local database to hold the configuration information (such as users, dashboards, alerts, etc.). But did you know you can also use other databases for this purpose? Many large customers prefer to use either Postgresql or MySQL/MariaDB, and we recently had a request from a company wanting some help to migrate their configuration data from Postgresql to MySQL. This is not a common request, so we didn’t have any pre-existing tooling to do it.

Grafana, with its huge amount of data sources and plugins, has all the capabilities one needs to create accurate graphs. Although creating dashboards is easy, interpreting each panel is hard if it’s not correctly visualised. Misinterpretation is one of the most common causes of wrong conclusions that make us hunt ghosts during debugging sessions. There are many common pitfalls which we can avoid if we follow some rules.
