cos-lite docs - Bundle topology

A COS Lite deployment is made up of numerous juju relation.

For clarity and readability, the bundle topology is depicted here using several separate diagrams. Each line indicates a separate juju relation.

Ingress view

The workloads that make up COS Lite are servers that need to be reachable from outside the model they are deployed in.

  • Grafana (“ingress-to-leader”) is the main UI, amalgamating telemetry from all datasources into dashboards.
  • Prometheus and Loki (both “ingress-per-unit”), ingest telemetry pushed from grafana agent from another model.
  • Alertmanager (“ingress per app”), has a UI for acknowledging or silencing alerts.

Datasource view

The workloads that make up COS Lite are datasources for each other:

  • Grafana queries loki, prometheus for telemetry and alertmanager for alerts.
  • Promtetheus and loki evaluate alert rules and post alerts to alertmanager.

Self-monitoring view

We need to be made aware if the observability solution itself is functioning properly. Self-monitoring relations within COS Lite, together with cos-alerter, are meant to alert for outages of the observability stack itself.
