Visualising Kubernetes metrics is an excellent way to monitor and manage your clusters, nodes, pods, and applications. Here are some of the most useful Kubernetes metrics that you can visulise in Logit.io hosted Kibana reporting dashboards.
Node Resources: this metric monitors the readiness, disk or processor overload, memory, memory requests, memory limits, allocatable memory, memory utilization, CPU requests and network availability of deployed clusters.
Cluster state metrics: this metric monitors Node status, desired pods, current pods available and unavailable pods and their health.
Kubernetes events: Monitor how pod creation, deletion, starting, and halting affects the performance of your infrastructure by collecting events from Kubernetes.
Control plane metrics: The control plane is Kubernetes' brain and heart. The cluster's optimal operation and efficiency rely on all of its components. Monitoring the state of the Kubernetes control plane is just as critical as monitoring the nodes or apps operating inside.
