Open Metrics Project Comes to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation

With Open Metrics, Richard Hartmann, technical architect at SpaceNet, Prometheus team member, and founder of OpenMetrics aims to bring useful metrics to cloud native deployments. At its core, Open Metrics is an effort to develop a neutral metrics exposition format.

“OpenMetrics does not limit or define what metrics to send, on purpose,” Hartmann told ServerWatch. “What it does do is to define an efficient way to transport those metrics over the wire, and a flexible and powerful way to attach information to them: label sets.”
