Metric Store provides a persistent storage layer for metrics sent through the Loggregator subsystem.

What is Metric Store?

Metric Store is multi-tenant aware (the auth proxy ensures that you only have access to metrics from your apps), easy to query (it is compatible with the PromQL), and has a powerful storage engine (the InfluxDB storage engine has built-in compression and a memory-efficient series index).

  • Multi-tenant aware: Application developers have access to their own metrics

  • Ubiquitous query language: Metric Store is compatible with PromQL and Prometheus API Query endpoints

  • Powerful storage engine: The InfluxDB storage engine has built-in compression and a memory-efficient series index

Metric Store offers multi-node deployments, data replication, hinted handoff, and load balancing in a highly-available configuration.
