Kong
Analyzed version: 3.4.5

By microfunctionsio

Kong is a scalable, open source API layer (aka API gateway or API middleware) that runs in front of any RESTful API. Extra functionalities beyond the core platform are extended through plugins. Kong is built on top of reliable technologies like NGINX and provides an easy-to-use RESTful API to operate and configure the system.

Prometheus, a CNCF project, is a systems and service monitoring system. It collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals, evaluates rule expressions, displays the results, and can trigger alerts if some condition is observed to be true.

This chart bootstraps a Prometheus deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.
