KUBERNETES MONITORING

Contain the complexity of Kubernetes

Why are companies adopting Kubernetes?

Speed

Developers can provision resources faster.

Efficiency

Containers can improve compute resource usage, so you can save money.

Portability

Workload extensibility across cloud and on-premises environments

You have to adapt your monitoring for Kubernetes

By abstracting a lot of the complexity in containerized environments, Kubernetes can makes things much easier to manage and scale. However, this abstraction layer can make it much harder to know exactly what’s happening and what to do when an issue occurs, especially as containers are often ephemeral. In order to stay on top of the ever-changing flow of operational data, you need a monitoring solution that can give you the context you need to keep up.

Supporting infrastructure 

Manage Kubernetes clusters running across cloud and on-premises environments.

nodes Created with Sketch.

Nodes

Monitor the CPU, memory, and disk utilization for the worker and master nodes in each cluster.

deploy Created with Sketch.

Deployments/pods

Ensure all desired pods in a deployment are running and healthy.

containers Created with Sketch.

Containers

Stay on top of container CPU and memory consumption.

 

applications Created with Sketch.

Applications

Measure request rate, throughput, error rate, and availability of apps running inside your Kubernetes cluster.

UX Created with Sketch.

End-user experience

Monitor response times and errors for your browser and mobile apps to ensure customer satisfaction.

Kubernetes has blurred the lines between application and infrastructure

Troubleshoot distributed environments faster with unprecedented context by leveraging observability telemetry and intuitively connecting the data in a centralized UI.

Understand what's happening inside your Kubernetes clusters

In order to stay informed and effective in managing containerized systems, you need to be able to see every relationship and correlate performance between every object in your environment—from the applications and infrastructure to the clusters and nodes inside. Our Kubernetes monitoring is uniquely able to collect, visualize, and alert on everything happening in your Kubernetes landscape.

collection Created with Sketch.

Collection

Using metrics, events, logs and traces, intuitively understand the relationships between containers, applications, and nodes.

visualization Created with Sketch.

Visualization

Use the Kubernetes cluster explorer as command central for visualizing your Kubernetes environments. Report on metrics with pre-built dashboards or create your own custom queries and charts.

alerts Created with Sketch.

Alerts

Create alert conditions on Kubernetes data like namespaces, deployments, replica sets, pods, and container memory.

“New Relic’s Kubernetes integration is simple and intuitive. The out-of-the-box dashboards and queries provide a plethora of useful data for my Kubernetes cluster. ”

– Chris Rosen, Program Director, Offering Management, IBM

“We don’t want just binary ‘is Kubernetes up or down?’ information, but rather the details—and alerts—about Kubernetes workers, masters, pods and how they’re correlated.”

– USA Today Network/Gannett

“The visibility into our Kubernetes clusters that New Relic provides has empowered our developers to be a lot more self-sufficient in diagnosing problems—not just in production code, but also in development and test code when they're in the middle of a sprint. That’s hugely valuable from a development standpoint.”

Put the complexity in context with Kubernetes monitoring from New Relic

Whether you run workloads on-premises, in the cloud, or a hybrid, get deep visibility for your Kubernetes environment. With a few clicks, you can see what’s happening inside your Kubernetes clusters, down to the infrastructure running underneath, and connect that to the performance of your apps and your end users’ experience.
