Table: prometheus_rule_group - Query Prometheus Rule Groups using SQL

Prometheus Rule Groups are a set of Prometheus rules that are evaluated together in a specific order. These rules can be either recording rules, which precompute frequently needed or computationally expensive expressions and save their result as a new set of time series, or alerting rules, which trigger alerts when certain conditions are observed to be true. Rule Groups are part of Prometheus' configuration and are used to define a list of alerts and recording rules.

This table is available as a standalone Exporter CLI. Steampipe exporters are stand-alone binaries that allow you to extract data using Steampipe plugins without a database.

You can download the tarball for your platform from the Releases page, but it is simplest to install them with the steampipe_export_installer.sh script:

/bin/sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://steampipe.io/install/export.sh)" -- prometheus

You can pass the configuration to the command with the --config argument:

steampipe_export_prometheus --config '<your_config>' prometheus_rule_group
