The Prometheus configuration file is where all the key parts of how your Prometheus works are defined.
This course looks at all the important settings in the configuration file, and how they tie into the broader system. In particular the basics of exporter configuration and relabelling will be covered.
This course is intended to cover the day-to-day aspects of the configuration file, it does not cover higher level architectural questions.
This is the fourth part of a multi-course series on Prometheus fundamentals.
