In the "old" way you need to specify each target within your Prometheus job configuration:And you need to do this for each of your servers, it doesn't matter where you host it. But actually, i'm always lazy ;) I wanted to have a way that all my servers are auto-discovered and I don't need to reload/restart Prometheus e...

My 2019: A 🤯 Year 🤩

So 2019 is now mostly done. Only a few days will be left. And so I will write my recap for 2019. It was an incredible year. I have met great new people (mostly at LaraconEU).

Mein erstes Jahr @ Hetzner Cloud!

Jetzt ist es bald so weit, am 01.07. (morgen!) bin ich bereits ein Jahr bei der Hetzner Cloud GmbH als Technischer Community Manager angestellt. Ich wollte, einfach auch nur für mich selber, das Jahr nun einmal Revue passieren lassen.Alles fing an mit zwei Wochen On-Boarding in München. Der erste Tag war bereits von Stau & Pannen übersät :)! Da ich ca. 200 km von München weg wohne, musste ich bereits gegen 5 Uhr losfahren. Ich wollte vorher noch tanken. Gut, das hab ich dann auch getan, bin...

My 2018: A great year!

So everybody writes about his 2018, so I'll "jump on the train" too!PersonalThis was the first complete year in my own flat, together with my girlfriend! All works fine :) My Parents visit us often, even if they live more than 600 km away. If you ever have the chance to live in Bavaria, just do it! It is a wonderful place! I really love the silence in the "Bavarian forest", the air and the nature! In the private everything works really great, but there is only one thing that is really annoying...
