    Hi Community,

     

    I'd like monitor a kubernetes cluster with CA APM. It's possible ?

     

    Regards,

    Hi,

    in the following url Resource Usage Monitoring - Kubernetes they expose the following:

     

     

    Kubelet

    The Kubelet acts as a bridge between the Kubernetes master and the nodes. It manages the pods and containers running on a machine. Kubelet translates each pod into its constituent containers and fetches individual container usage statistics from cAdvisor. It then exposes the aggregated pod resource usage statistics via a REST API

    So.. since there is a door to be used to retrieve info via REST, you can develop an EPAgent to consume it and send all this data to CA APM.

     

    Also, if the app deployed in the pod is supported by the APM Agents, you can show this info as well

     

    best Regards,

    Harold

    The APM Docker Field Pack uses a similar concept with the 9.7.1+ EPAgent REST support.

    Some other resources here:

    GitHub - CA-APM/ca-apm-fieldpack-docker: Restful EPAgent script (python) to monitor Docker via Remote API.

    Hi Aldo:

    Converting to a discussion since more of a how-to/best practice/custom instrumentation question.

     

    Thanks
