Practical Kubernetes Monitoring with Prometheus - Michael Friedrich, GitLab

Feedback form is now closed.
Monitoring for microservices and distributed workloads isn’t an easy task. Imagine that you become responsible after years of traditional service monitoring. You start your research - Kubernetes as a container orchestrator already is a complex ecosystem to understand. Join this talk for a journey on the first steps, best practices with Prometheus, Grafana and the Prometheus Operator. The adventure does not stop here: Use client libraries to instrument your own application with metrics, deploy it to Kubernetes and what now? Explore how service discovery, long term storage with Thanos/Cortex and alerting help complete cloud native monitoring. It’s also an iterative process, with new workloads, changes, and a constant work in progress. This talk will help prepare you for cold winters and hot summers, silencing alerts before they exist. Spoiler: The end will peek into observability with logs, traces and SLOs, and show monitoring use cases on GitLab.com SaaS.
