Monitoring Kubernetes + Docker, part 2: Prometheus

  • Industrial port at dawn at the Port of Casablanca, Morocco.

    In part 1 of this series, I discussed the rise of microservice architecture and the reliance on Kubernetes and Docker for container orchestration and management. I also shared some of the challenges these new technologies present and what sources of data we need in order to effectively monitor our Kubernetes environments. In my concluding comments, I mentioned that Prometheus provides an excellent starting point for collecting and analyzing this data. In this post, I’ll give a brief overview of Prometheus, illustrate how to collect Kubernetes data with Prometheus, and discuss some of the pros and cons of the Prometheus approach.
