  Description     : Prometheus exporter for ephemereal jobs

 The Prometheus Pushgateway exists to allow ephemeral and batch jobs to
 expose their metrics to Prometheus. Since these kinds of jobs may not
 exist long enough to be scraped, they can instead push their metrics
 to a Pushgateway. The Pushgateway then exposes these metrics to
 The Pushgateway is explicitly not an aggregator, but rather a metrics
 cache.  It does not have a statsd-like semantics. The metrics pushed
 are exactly the same as you would present for scraping in a
 permanently running program.
 For machine-level metrics, the textfile collector of
 prometheus-node-exporter is usually more appropriate. The Pushgateway
 is best used for service-level metrics.
