Monitor API Metrics

API7 Enterprise supports exposing a comprehensive set of metrics to the monitoring system with minimal delay, facilitating ongoing monitoring and diagnostics. The monitoring and alerting framework of API7 Enterprise is built on Prometheus, a widely used system monitoring and alerting toolkit. Prometheus gathers and stores multi-dimensional time-series data, including metrics annotated with key-value labels.

This document describes how to enable the Prometheus plugin to integrate with the monitoring system, allowing you to collect and visualize HTTP metrics.
