Monitoring hundreds of Kubernetes clusters with federated prometheuses

Abstract: This talk will give a brief introduction on how we monitor up to hundrets of Kubernetes clusters with a federated prometheus setup, while retaining scalability. To preserve maintanability at scale, we will explore the possibilities of jsonnet to build alerting- and record-rules as well as grafana dashboards.

Biography: Christian is a 25 yrs old Site Reliability Engineer for managed Kubernetes at SysEleven GmbH. Before joining their Kubernetes team he worked in the operational field and studied mathematics at the TU Berlin.

Explore Your Prometheus Data in Grafana

Abstract: We've built a whole new section that allows you to iterate quickly through Prometheus queries while leaving your dashboards intact. I'll show-case our new Explore UI and how it can fit into your workflows for both troubleshooting and data exploration.

Biography: David is the Director of UX at Grafana Labs and focuses mainly on workflows around monitoring with Prometheus. Previously he worked at companies such as Kausal, Weaveworks, Oracle, and Siemens Research. David has been building UIs for the networking industry for over a decade. He’s recently joined the sourdough train and is now baking way too much bread.

Prometheus – myths and proverbs

Abstract: If Go has proverbs (https://go-proverbs.github.io/), we should,
too. I have collected a few of them I would like to share. And of
course, as the original Prometheus is from mythology, we should also
talk about myths.

Biography: Björn “Beorn” Rabenstein[1] is a
Production Engineer at SoundCloud and a
Prometheus developer. Previously, Björn was a
Site Reliability Engineer (https://landing.google.com/sre/) at
Google and a number cruncher for science (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=NPn0JJEAAAAJ&hl=en).
