Prometheus Frontend

You can use the Cortex query frontend with any Prometheus-API compatible service, including Prometheus and Thanos. Use this config file to get the benefits of query parallelisation and caching.

# X-Scope-OrgID header. `fake` will be substituted in instead.

      # If you want to use a memcached cluster, configure a headless service

      # a SRV DNS query.  Cortex will then do client-side hashing to spread
      # the load evenly.
