Install Prometheus alongside GitLab Runner?

We currently have a GitLab Runner installed on a separate server because the documentation recommended that it be installed separately from the GitLab instance itself.

So far so good. Now I’m looking at using Prometheus as well, is it safe to install Prometheus on the same server as the GitLab Runner? I don’t really want to add another server to our list if I could.

Hi @gregorip,

Yes , You can install Prometheus on GitLab runner because Prometheus is systems monitoring and alerting toolkit so both server can can be work “ok” on the same system.


Maybe I don’t really need to install Prometheus as it seems like it came bundled in the GitLab Omnibus package.
