There are several Kubernetes on-premise distributions. A part of them are lightweight, another use more VMs or physical nodes. It’s hard to select the best free solution, so I created a make-based development environment on Ubuntu (and partly Windows) to compare them.

The base distribution is the kubeadm in VMs (created by Vagrant) as a production environment.
Other distributions are candidates for developer and CI environment. This distributions are container-based (not VM-based), in order to keep resource consumption low. The developer/CI environment should be similar to production environment as much as possible, in order to catch bugs in early phase and maintain same/similar deployments. Multi-node support and fast cluster cleanup are also important.
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.
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 ...
In this blog I have deployed two monitoring tools namely Prometheus and Grafana on top of Kubernetes. The main issue solved is that when the pod gets deleted the data is also lost to resolve this I used the PVC feature of kubernetes to make data persistent.
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.
A software developer gives a quick tutorial on how to use Strimzi to integrate Prometheus into a Java-based application. Grafana and Prometheus Setup With Strimzi, a.k.a. Kafka on Kubernetes.
