Title: Monitoring Kubernetes Architecture
Author: Gianluca Arbezzano
Abstract: Written by InfluxData Site Reliability Engineer Gianluca Arbezzano, this DZone article titled “Monitoring Kubernetes Architecture” discusses how to gain visibility into your clusters by setting up effective monitoring with Telegraf in a Kubernetes architecture. Arbezzano first introduces the two key considerations of monitoring a Kubernetes architecture, which are the underlying resources (bare metal infrastructure Kubernetes is running on) and every service, ingress, and pod deployed. He proceeds to share some of the practices that the InfluxData team applies to its clusters. He also explains how to deploy Telegraf (InfluxData’s metrics collection agent) on every node, and how to use it to gain visibility into the hosts and services.
