Install Prometheus
Download and Unpack Prometheus latest release of Prometheus:
sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
wget https://github.com/prometheus/prometheus/releases/download/v2.30.0/prometheus-2.30.0.linux-amd64.tar.gztar xfz prometheus-_.tar.gzcd prometheus-_
The following two binaries are in the directory:
  • Prometheus - Prometheus main binary file
  • Promtool
The following two folders (which contain the web interface, configuration files examples and the license) are in the directory:
  • Consoles
  • Console_libraries
Copy the binary files into the /usr/local/bin/directory:
sudo cp ./prometheus /usr/local/bin/
sudo cp ./promtool /usr/local/bin/
Set the ownership of these files to the prometheus user previously created:
sudo chown prometheus:prometheus /usr/local/bin/prometheus
sudo chown prometheus:prometheus /usr/local/bin/promtool
Copy the consoles and console_libraries directories to /etc/prometheus:
sudo cp -r ./consoles /etc/prometheus
sudo cp -r ./console_libraries /etc/prometheus
Set the ownership of the two folders, as well as of all files that they contain, to our prometheus user:
sudo chown -R prometheus:prometheus /etc/prometheus/consoles
sudo chown -R prometheus:prometheus /etc/prometheus/console_libraries
In our home folder, remove the source files that are not needed anymore:
cd .. && rm -rf prometheus-\*
