Dynatrace is the trusted solution for monitoring Kubernetes

CNCF

A truly automated approach to monitoring Kubernetes


Kubernetes is the standard platform for running and managing containerized workloads in distributed environments. There are many container runtimes available now—Docker, CRI-O, containerd, as well as layers running atop of K8s, like Istio and Linkerd service mesh. Dynatrace auto-discovers them all and gives you full visibility without changing any code.

Kubernetes overview

Deploy at speed and scale with the Dynatrace OneAgent Operator


Dynatrace is the only full-stack monitoring platform that provides fully automated, zero-config, distributed tracing, metrics, and code-level visibility into distributed applications without changing code, Docker images, or deployments.

Deploying Dynatrace OneAgent Operator


By deploying and managing the Dynatrace OneAgent Operator, the OneAgent becomes a native, first-class citizen of the platform.

Automated distributed tracing


Distributed tracing is about seeing how requests flow through 1,000s of different services. It is key to finding the cause-and-effect relationship of breakdowns or performance issues. While other solutions require manual instrumentation and have limited visibility into containers, Dynatrace provides

  • Real time discovery of all containers and microservices
  • Automated instrumentation of services running inside of containers with zero changes of the code, container images or deployments
  • Code level visibility for fast problem resolution

Kubernetes Service Flow

Cluster health and utilization monitoring


Kubernetes clusters are typically shared across teams. Cluster owners are responsible for providing enough resources and capacity to properly host and run workloads and support the teams who rely on them. Dynatrace provides the needed insights.

  • Cluster health and utilization of nodes
  • Health status of individual nodes
  • Requested usage of resources compared to actual usage
  • How much additional workload can be deployed per node

Cluster utilization

Understand cause of failing microservices


Davis, the Dynatrace AI engine, is built from the ground up to automatically pinpoint anomalies in highly distributed containerized environments. Real time visibility into containers at start-up combined with semantically enriched log, tracing and real user data are the foundation for Davis to precisely determine the:

  • Functional root cause of a performance or availability problem
  • Foundational root cause, that is the deployment or configuration change responsible
  • Impact to real users and business KPIs

Worker disfunctional

"We adopted Kubernetes because it would help us accelerate time-to-market, and Dynatrace helps us to do just that. Dynatrace is a great solution that automates the monitoring of Kubernetes workloads at scale and provides AI-powered answers, allowing us to focus our efforts on innovation."

—Felix Gratz, Application Performance Management and System Architecture, Daimler AG
