Kubernetes integration

InsightFinder offers comprehensive integration capabilities, enabling the collection of metrics, logs, and event data directly from pods within a Kubernetes cluster.

Leveraging the advanced  capabilities of the InsightFinder Intelligence Engine, it provides in-depth root cause analysis for pod crash events. Additionally, integration with our Autoscaler feature allows for cost-efficient resource management and proactive scaling in response to workload surges.

InsightFinder’s platform support extends to a wide range of providers, including AWS EKS, Google Cloud GKE, and on-premise solutions.

Data Collection

We provided a Kubernetes collector to collect the following data from the cluster:

  • CPU Usage
  • DiskSpace Usage
  • Memory
    • Requests
    • Limits
    • Request Usage
    • Limits Usage
  • Network I/O
  • Disk I/O
  • Container Status Events.
  • Pod Crash Events.
  • Scaling Events.
  • Container Logs
  • Trace data from microservices.
  • Dependency map of microservice traffic.

Prediction-Driven Autoscaling

InsightFinder also supports the autoscaling of memory and CPU resources based on our predictions.

Scale down based on prediction

InsightFinder predicts future memory requirements, enabling proactive reduction of memory allocations. When lower usage is forecasted, the autoscaler decreases memory requests, aligning resource allocation with predicted needs.

Scale Up based on prediction

Conversely, InsightFinder can preemptively increase resource limits and requests. By forecasting higher resource demands, it automatically scales up memory allocations, preventing issues related to resource scarcity.

Scale Up based on Predicted and Detected Incidents

InsightFinder actively predicts and detects incidents in realtime. This functionality permits tailored scaling actions in response to specific incidents, such as automatically increasing resources during an OutOfMemory event. This proactive approach ensures system stability and reliability.
