The Dark Art of Container Monitoring

Containers are revolutionizing the way we deploy and maintain our infrastructures: reducing development overhead, streamlining dev / test / ops, and enabling highly scalable, dynamic infrastructures. But containers still have a key problem: monitoring and troubleshooting them is impractical, painful, and sometimes plain impossible. Even basic things like understanding what is using CPU, memory, or disk bandwidth inside a container are difficult - let alone finding out who a container is talking to on the network or tracking malicious activity. This complexity is even further complicated by the addition of orchestration layers such as Kubernetes.

In this 30-minute presentation, Gianluca Borello will cover the current state of the art for container and Kubernetes monitoring and visibility, including real use-cases and pros / cons of each. He will then focus on advanced container visibility techniques, such as:

* visualizing a container’s network activity
* understanding detailed resource usage (CPU, memory and disk I/O) of pods, containers and individual processes running inside containers
* following process and user activity inside containers and across pods
* collecting logs from multiple containers
* understanding application performance from a microservice perspective, across pods and RCs, regardless of the physical location of the underlying containers

The presentation will include live interaction with Kubernetes environments, and hopes to help DevOps engineers to deploy a Kubernetes infrastructure in production with confidence and peace of mind. Many visibility tools and techniques will be covered, although special emphasis will be put on sysdig, an open source container and system troubleshooting tool that the presenter has helped author.
