What are your containers doing? How to monitor modern microservices

February 11, 2019  |  Meetup

Diving into containers? Kubernetes? By packaging code and dependencies together, containers help you deliver code that works across platforms. This isolation is a big advantage for DevOps teams moving code thru the pipeline from development to production. At the same time it impacts your ability see what’s happening inside with your applications. At scale with orchestration and a microservices architecture the visibility challenge is multiplied.

How can you monitor and troubleshoot performance and security issues in a distributed containerized environment? How can you see what’s happening with the right service context?

Enterprises are embracing cloud-native technologies like containers with help from platforms like IBM Cloud and IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service (IKS), Red Hat OpenShift, and more. Join Sysdig to learn about the different approaches users of these solutions are taking to solve the container-visibility problem.

In this session we’ll discuss:

  • The technical challenges that complicate monitoring of containers and microservices
  • The benefits and drawbacks of different approaches like injecting APM code into containers, deploying sidecar containers, leveraging open source Prometheus, and using kernel system call monitoring
  • How to use orchestration metadata to enrich collected metrics and events to understand application activity with the right service context.
  • Best practices for troubleshooting and security forensics even for ephemeral containers that are no longer running.
