Kubernetes MP monitoring in OMi

Kubernetes MP monitoring in OMi

Hi Team, this ER is from support case SD02114118. Below are the details:

  • Brief Description

We need a OMi monitor for Kubernetes like the one available for Docker.

  • Benefits / Value
    Have a fully featured Kubernetes monitoring application.

    I think that we are late in Kubernetes monitoring against our competitors (the customer is also evaluating different products to address a fully featured Kubernetes monitoring application as, for example, opensource Grafana+Prometeus).

    Kubernetes is the de facto standard in container orchestration and even our product suites are Kubernetes based.


    - Missing of topology creation in OMi
    - Missing of metrics dasboarding in OMi
    - Use of a single console (not OMi + Sitescope) to present data to the user


    Use the Sistescope Dynamic Docker Monitor ( via Heapster) but with a very partial coverage of requested features. 

    • Design details

Requested features:
- topology creation (Cluster, Namespaces, Pods, Containers, ... and their relationships)
- dynamic update of the topology to follow the changes in Kubernetes
- metrics and alerts
- dashboards

this is done using Prometheus connector which is available in market place. As an alternative you can also use the SiS monitoring.

We have progressed on the path of building the capability of providing Kubernetes monitoring. The Feb 2020 release of OBM shall have a Prometheus Connector which will collect Topology, Metrics and Events from Kubernetes. This would be our comprehensive solution to add Kubernetes monitoring to our offering.
