Prometheus Exporter for Azure (Container Apps)
I’ve written Prometheus Exporters for various cloud platforms. My motivation for writing these Exporters is that I want a unified mechanism to track my usage of these platform’s services. It’s easy to deploy a service on a platform and inadvertently leave it running (up a bill). The set of exporters is: Prometheus Exporter for Azure Prometheus Exporter for Fly.io Prometheus Exporter for GCP Prometheus Exporter for Linode Prometheus Exporter for Vultr This post describes the recently-added Azure Exporter which only provides metrics for Container Apps and Resource Groups.
Azure Container Apps
The majority of Ackal’s components are deployed to Google Cloud. However, by its nature, Ackal benefits from deployments that span cloud platforms. I’ve deployed Ackal’s gRPC health checks to Fly, and managed Kubernetes services on Linode and Vultr. Today, I decided to revisit¹ Azure. Ackal uses Azure (Active Directory) for one of its OAuth providers. This time, I wanted to deploy a containerized gRPC service. Azure provides several container-oriented services. I decided to use Azure Container Apps and, in hindsight, find it analogous to Google Cloud Run.
