About this event

Come join us on Monday, March 12 as Newt Global Inc presents Prometheus monitoring on Kubernetes. Newt Global Consulting, LLC ( is sponsoring this meetup.

Contemporary cluster architectures like those using Kubernetes, where loosely coupled containers come and go depending on when and where they are needed, require a new approach to effective monitoring. It’s not enough to watch load and activity on a particular machine when the work assigned to that machine may change with the requirements of the cluster and application as a whole. If your architecture is designed to allow for processes to fail, you can’t tell if a failure is critical by monitoring individual processes.

Prometheus is an open source monitoring and alerting toolkit made for monitoring applications in clusters. Inspired by Google’s Borgmon, it was designed from day one for the Kubernetes model of assigning and managing units of work. Prometheus also has beta support for using the Kubernetes API itself to discover cluster services and monitoring targets.

Kubernetes features built in support for Prometheus metrics and labels as well, and Prometheus support and integration continues to advance on both sides. This meetup presentation shows how to use Prometheus to monitor the essential workers running in your Kubernetes cluster.

We’ll set up a basic installation of Prometheus on your Kubernetes cluster with just a few manifests, and then use it to demonstrate how to inspect containers, pods, and whole namespaces in Kubernetes.
