Details

For a second meetup in October, we will have two guest speakers from Red Hat: Elana Hashman and Ryan Jarvinen

#1: Elana Hashman will present "Operating within Normal Parameters: Monitoring Kubernetes"

After Kubernetes takes over your data centers, how can you be sure that it's operating within normal parameters? What does "normal" even mean? By formalizing your expected quality of service, you can measure and compare against known targets with open source tools like Prometheus. In this talk, we'll use Kubernetes as a case study for introducing service level objectives (SLOs) to guide monitoring efforts. Come learn the how and why of metric selection for monitoring Kubernetes quality of service, what gaps exist in the open source Kubernetes monitoring ecosystem, how to use Prometheus and its exporters to establish predictability and "normal" baselines, and how to use this telemetry to debug service degradations in a Kubernetes cluster.

#2: Ryan Jarvinen will present "What is Openshift?"

Ryan will explain what the Openshift distribution adds to Kubernetes. He'll go over what went into designing Openshift 4.X, and then he'll demo some of the features recently added to 4.2.

Generously hosted by Cambia Health. Sponsored by Red Hat.
