Once your Kubernetes or OpenShift cluster is up and running, having containerized important business applications into production, it’s important to understand how those applications are working. Monitoring containers can be challenging, especially in frequently changing environments. One of the most popular monitoring frameworks for Kubernetes environment is Prometheus.
We sat down with Julius Volz (@juliusvolz), co-creator of the Prometheus project to talk about the challenges that Prometheus solves, how it does monitoring and interacts with other systems, how it works with Kubernetes, and common-use cases and patterns.
NOTE: We also did a follow-up to this show as Prometheus v2.0 shipped. It is available on The Cloudcast podcast.
