Gain visibility into your Kubernetes application container platform

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. The platform provides complete application lifecycle management functionality and DevOps tooling. Out of the box, Dynatrace provides full monitoring insights into the hosts and applications you deploy with Kubernetes, including:

Outline service response times and requests

See the full picture of your environment in real-time

Dynatrace automatically discovers all containers running on Kubernetes and presents you with a real-time view of all the connections between your containerized processes, hosts, and cloud instances. Dynatrace provides deep insights into your dynamic deployment environment and ensures that everything works as designed.

Discover service dependencies and streamline container co-location

Optimize the configuration of Kubernetes applications with new insights into cross-service communication. Dynatrace identifies related containers and automatically visualizes all dependencies throughout your entire application environment.

  • Self-learning capabilities automatically discover your application environment end-to-end without configuration.
  • All services and hosts are automatically visualized in an interactive topology map.

Verify available resources

Understand the cause of failing microservices

Highly distributed applications produce extensively distributed log files. When dealing with such applications, log analytics and alerting are often not enough on their own to explain the root causes of detected problems. This is why Dynatrace provides you with the ability to replay and understand failures throughout your Kubernetes clusters.

  • Dynatrace tells you where and why highly distributed applications break down.
  • Stop spending time hunting for problems. Dynatrace auto-detects problems for you and provides detailed root cause analysis so you can focus on fixing problems efficiently.

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

Kubernetes runs on a multitude of providers, such as AWS, GCE and Azure and is the underlying platform of many commercially successful products, such as OpenShift by Red Hat, Google Container Engine and Deis Workflow.
