  • Avoiding Kubernetes Cluster Outages with Synthetic Monitoring
    1 project | | 22 Jun 2021
    At the time of writing this post, two tools have Kubernetes native synthetic checks namely Kuberhealthy and Grafana Cloud. Kuberhealthy is an operator-based synthetic monitoring tool that uses custom resources called Kuberhealthy checks (khchecks), while Grafana cloud uses agents to gather data from the probes that periodically check the pre-defined endpoints. Kuberhealthy provides a lot more synthetic checks in comparison to Grafana Cloud and also it is an open-source option too. Thus, we will explore synthetic monitoring in the Kubernetes clusters with the help of Kuberhealthy.
