Overview

Thanos is a set of components that can be composed into a highly available metric system with unlimited storage capacity, which can be added seamlessly on top of existing Prometheus deployments.

Thanos is a CNCF Incubating project.

Thanos leverages the Prometheus 2.0 storage format to cost-efficiently store historical metric data in any object storage while retaining fast query latencies. Additionally, it provides a global query view across all Prometheus installations and can merge data from Prometheus HA pairs on the fly.

Concretely the aims of the project are:

  1. Global query view of metrics.
  2. Unlimited retention of metrics.
  3. High availability of components, including Prometheus.

Getting Started

Features

  • Global querying view across all connected Prometheus servers
  • Deduplication and merging of metrics collected from Prometheus HA pairs
  • Seamless integration with existing Prometheus setups
  • Any object storage as its only, optional dependency
  • Downsampling historical data for massive query speedup
  • Cross-cluster federation
  • Fault-tolerant query routing
  • Simple gRPC "Store API" for unified data access across all metric data
  • Easy integration points for custom metric providers

Thanos Philosophy

The philosophy of Thanos and our community is borrowing much from UNIX philosophy and the golang programming language.

  • Each subcommand should do one thing and do it well
    • eg. thanos query proxies incoming calls to known store API endpoints merging the result
  • Write components that work together
    • e.g. blocks should be stored in native prometheus format
  • Make it easy to read, write, and, run components
    • e.g. reduce complexity in system design and implementation

Releases

Main branch should be stable and usable. Every commit to main builds docker image named

main--
in quay.io/thanos/thanos and thanosio/thanos dockerhub (mirror)

We also perform minor releases every 6 weeks.

During that, we build tarballs for major platforms and release docker images.

See release process docs for details.
