Prometheus monitoring

My Sonarqube is 9.9 and it is running on centos.
In its help document, it says “You can monitor your SonarQube instance using SonarQube’s native integration with Prometheus”. I’m confused with it.
Does it mean to support Prometheus or Prometheus is build-in? Do I need setup Prometheus server and export metrics like Vulnerabilities, Bugs, Blockers? A detail guide will be appreciated.


Prometheus would be used to monitor SonarQube itself (uptime &etc.) not the results of analyses.

For those, your best bet is to make sure your Quality Gate reflects what you expect to see in a mergable PR / releasable project and then push your Quality Gate results back into your CI/CD. The details of that will vary based on what you’re using to run your build/analysis.
