Using eBPF to Measure the k8s Cluster Health

As a k8s cluster-admin your app teams have a certain expectation of your cluster to be available to deploy services at any time without problems. While there is no shortage on metrics in k8s its important to have the right metrics to alert on issues and giving you enough data to react to potential availability issues. Prometheus has become a standard and sheds light on the inner behaviour of Kubernetes clusters and workloads. Lots of KPIs (CPU, IO, network. Etc) in our On-Premise environment are less precise when we start to work in a Cloud environment. Ebpf is the perfect technology that fulfills that requirement as it gives us information down to the kernel level. In 2018 Cloudflare shared an opensource project to expose custom ebpf metrics in Prometheus. Join this session and learn about: • What is ebpf? • What type of metrics we can collect? • How to expose those metrics in a K8s environment. This session will try to deliver a step-by-step guide on how to take advantage of the ebpf exporter.
