logged by @logbot permalink

Monitoring Kubernetes requires you to rethink your monitoring strategies, especially if you're used to monitoring traditional hosts like VMs or physical machines. This guide from Datadog will prepare you to effectively approach monitoring Kubernetes in light of its significant operational differences:

  • You have more components to monitor
  • Your monitoring needs to track applications that are constantly moving
  • Applications may be distributed across multiple cloud providers
