Change Intelligence 101: Connecting Kubernetes Events with Metrics

Kubernetes is the most popular container orchestration platform. It’s the de facto standard for cloud-native container orchestration. And yet, despite the abundant documentation and monitoring and debugging tools, developers and operators still lack the knowledge and skills to manage and troubleshoot Kubernetes environments.

Troubleshooting Kubernetes is hard. When changes occur in your Kubernetes cluster, you have to know what information to look for, where to look for it, and how to access it across several K8s tools. Then, you have to figure out which line or lines in the dozens of configuration files to fix. In this session, you’ll learn which metrics and events are important for troubleshooting K8s infrastructure issues. More importantly, we’ll show you how to pull all the information together to provide enough context for troubleshooting to be efficient—all without constantly moving between tools.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What events and metrics K8s components emit out of the box that are useful for troubleshooting
  • Why current tools don’t provide enough context, even with a lot of context switching
  • How CtrlStack provides a central point for viewing K8s metrics and events in the context of the issue
  • How expanding beyond K8s to incorporate more context speeds up root cause analysis
