Monitoring the Kubernetes Platform

When it comes to monitoring Kubernetes, there are two tasks you can take on. First, you might want to monitor the applications running on Kubernetes. While it may be similar to monitoring applications on an EC2 or other virtual machine environments, there are some unique aspects to keep in mind. But the other area to monitor is the Kubernetes platform itself. That is what this course focuses on. Monitoring the Kubernetes platform, or Control Plane means looking at each of the components that comprise the platform, including:

  • etcd
  • the API Server
  • the Controller Manager and Scheduler
  • CoreDNS

In this course we will look at each of these as well as installing the agent with the manifest and with Helm, using the cluster agent, and more.
