When it comes to Prometheus and alerts, the typical use case is to send alerts to Alertmanager for handling (deduplication, grouping) and routing them to the various services such Slack, PagerDuty etc. However, there might be situations where we might need to perform analysis on alert patterns and being able to visualize how often the alerts are firing can be very useful. In this post, I will share how we can visualize the alert metrics on Grafana using the various PromQL operators and functions.
