Fun with kubernetes and Dynatrace the easy way

Hello,

 

A customer asked me if there is a simple way to test/try out the installation of the Dynatrace operator for kubernetes.

 

What I advised him was really simple, all you need  is your laptop and hope it is not to rigorously protected by your employer.

 

You can install docker desktop and enable kubernetes.

 

https://docs.docker.com/desktop/windows/install/

 

(please read the requirements)

When finished you could install easy travel:

 

see https://github.com/BraydenNeale/easytravel_k8s

 

Best to start cmd and do a ">docker pull" to get all the images from the manifests locally. after this you can do a ">kubernetes apply -f manifest.yaml (s)" to start the POD's

 

For the order and syntactics you can have a peek at the scripts in the Github repo.

 

Next step could be to install the dynatrace operator :

Good luck but more important have fun!

 

Remarks, improvements experiences? Please feel free to comment

I really love to play around with Dynatrace on Kubernetes, specially when we have too many monitoring mode flavors, classicFullStack, cloudNativeFullStack, applicationMonitoring.

Good to know each of those capabilities, testing new features, such as the namespaceSelector.

Indeed a fun thing to do.

It is very good idea and a great suggestion for those who wants to start learning about how Dynatrace Operator works. Thanks for sharing, @henk_stobbe 

It will help in training new comers/customers and show them what Dynatrace can do with K8s monitoring.
