Recommended approach to alert on Pods/Container

Dear All,

What is the recommended and easy approach (I meant the minimum human hours investment) to alert for utilization and resources (CPU, Memory), Container restarted and Container totally went down, etc?

Regards,

Babar

Hi @Babar_Qayyum ,

 

Yes I think it will be a imoprtant mile stone fro the kubernetes monitoring. I am walking in your shose. I would also find the applicable thresholds. I have been waiting for these feature since I heard about it.

 

I have already created a kubernetes dashboards with threshold colouing in the Demo Live. You can check it. Kubernetes event metrics are required for a small part of it.

But there will be new predefined Dynatrace kubernetes dashboards form saas 1.251, I guess form managed 1.252.  I am very qurious...

Hi - I guess the answer here is what my amazing engineering friends are currently testing and polishing. OOTB alerts for common k8s platform issues are just around the corner and I'm already super excited as I'm also testing them currently internally and they're amazing. Let me share some sneak preview here (might change slightly until released), so you see it won't be about  "human-hours", but "human-seconds" soon 🙂 Note, that this is just the first set of alerts, and we will keep expanding them immediately after the first release, with every version 🙂 You'll get alerts for clusters, nodes, namespaces and workloads. All of them can be set tenant-wide (kind of your defaults), and afterward overwritten if certain clusters, namespaces require different alerts or customizations (i.e., thresholds) of them.

Hi @florian_g,

 

Thanks for sharing these information. From now I can't sleep until AG 1.253. 😂

Hi @Mizső - I totally can relate to that. Felt like birthday and all public holidays on the same day, when my amazing engineer friends gave a first end2end demo to me 🤩

PS on expectation mgmt: While internally, we require AG 1.253, I can't promise yet that it will go out with this version (that's why next to the required version, there's still an "in-developement" tag). But, I'm keeping my fingers crossed we can stick with it 🙂 We'll do our best - let's see 😄

We're also interested in consuming this capability, so looking forward to it's release.

👋 great news - can confirm that the mentioned feature will go out in a first version (a subset of alerts) with Dynatrace 1.254 🥳 I'm planning to do a community blog about it to share basics/setup, outlook of upcoming alerts and collect feedback from you all 🙂 Once published, I'll share it here - looking fwd to your feedback 🙂
