Learn what PromQL is and how to use it to query Prometheus. Learn how to select, filter, and aggregate time series.

What is PromQL?

PromQL is the query language of the Prometheus monitoring system. It is a central feature of Prometheus that enables dashboarding, alerting, and ad-hoc querying of the collected time series data.

PromQL allows you to select, aggregate, and otherwise transform and compute on time series data in a flexible way. The result of an expression can either be shown as a graph, viewed as tabular data in Prometheus's expression browser, or consumed by external systems via the HTTP API.

PromQL is used only for reading data.
