I won’t be covering KubeVirt itself with too many details, but how to monitor your virtual machines similarly to how you monitor your containers inside k8s. KubeVirt has an awesome user-guide if you want to know more about it.
Kubernetes has indeed become a defacto standard when developing containerized apps as it provides a vast set of functionalities out-of-the-box that helps developers build scalable and resilient systems.
Everything is beautiful if you are developing something from scratch, but we all know that’s not how it works for most companies! As time pass, a lot of legacy systems have become some sort of gigantic monolith monster that doesn’t run on containers, but on Virtual Machines. It’s really hard to refactor those systems for various reasons:
This shouldn’t stop you from using Kubernetes, and KubeVirt is the right tool for bringing those VMs to the Kubernetes world. KubeVirt is a virtual machine management add-on for Kubernetes. The aim is to provide a common ground for virtualization solutions on top of Kubernetes. With KubeVirt, you can manage Virtual Machines as a Kubernetes resource, similar to pods. You can declare, start, stop, delete, scale, and…monitor them! The Kubernetes way.
In this particular blog post, I won’t be covering KubeVirt itself with too many details, but how to monitor your virtual machines similarly to how you monitor your containers inside k8s. KubeVirt has an awesome user-guide if you want to know more about it.
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.
Monitoring is crucial whether you are experimenting or using production-based cluster. There are multiple tool and stack to monitor kubernetes cluster Prometheus and Grafana top the chart.
Working knowledge of Kubernetes and using kubectl. A running Kubernetes cluster with at least 3 nodes (for the purpose of this demo a GKE cluster is being used).
Continuing with the Kubernetes: monitoring with Prometheus — exporters, a Service Discovery, and its roles, where we configured Prometheus manually to see how it’s working — now, let’s try to use Prometheus Operator installed via Helm chart.
Learn how to set up Prometheus & Grafana using the kube-prometheus-stack chart, configure Prometheus to scrape YugabyteDB pods, & see the YugabyteDB Grafana dashboard. Monitoring YugabyteDB with Prometheus and Grafana in Kubernetes ... a Kubernetes cluster using either the Kubernetes prometheus-operator ...
