Capturing historical metrics is essential to diagnose issues involving your Microservices. Its also very useful for auto scaling

So we recommend running the Metrics Microservice which uses Prometheus as the back end storage service and REST API and then Grafana as the console to view, query and analyze metrics.

If you use Java then using a JMX Exporter YAML file will configure which JMX metrics to export to Prometheus.
