Monitoring Kubernetes performance at scale presents numerous challenges. With containers and orchestrators becoming very popular - creating highly dynamic environments - there's a strong need to monitor them dynamically. Comprehensive monitoring provides enterprises running traditional or microservice-based applications on Kubernetes an end-to-end solution to deliver flawless application experiences. Kubernetes monitoring gives organizations complete observability into application and business performance, providing unparalleled insights into containerized applications, Kubernetes clusters, Docker containers, and underlying infrastructure metrics - all through a single pane of glass. It is critical to correlate events in Kubernetes with contextual insights to help troubleshoot issues and understand how to track end-user experience from those applications.
