    Not sure if this is helpful, but I am running a k3s cluster on 4 raspberry pi's with 4Gb of memory each with no issues, however resource usage is always a consideration. Here are some opinions: 1. Do you need Rancher? Genuine question as I don't use it and not sure what benefits it brings. The thing seems memory hungry and redundant at this scale. I might be wrong though. I installed my k3s using ansible and that installation is quite lean.

    🐶 Kubernetes CLI To Manage Your Clusters In Style!

    Fair enough. I would recommend Kubernetes up and Running book, was following it at the beginning and it was quite helpful. Kubectl is not super complex, mostly just a bit annoying and takes a bit of time to get used to. There is also a middle ground that quite handy and uses no resources of your cluster - k9s.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
