  • [P] Machine Learning Threat Detection in k8s
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/MachineLearning | 24 Jan 2023
    Well, what is considered "real" data here? Why couldn't you simply set up a managed k8s cluster with some prometheus monitoring and run the microservices-demo on it. There is even a synthetic load generator. You could purposefully add in specific kinds of faults into the working system, ones that are supported in metasploit so you can automate intrusions. Consider some goals for gaining access like: exfiltration, denial of service, ransomware. Then consider how you might detect such attacks purely from what you can read out of the prometheus time series data (eg. high egress traffic plus high req/s to redis might mean an exfiltration).
  • Keep Calm! Kubernetes Cluster!! with helm file

    The microservices source code repository for this project is from this link; google-microservices-demo, containing 11 services we will deploy with this demo. Also, from the same repo, it was illustrated and visualized how these services are connected to each other including a 3rd party service for database - redis. Among the services, Frontend serves as an entrypoint for all the services receiving external requests from the browser. Meanwhile, the load generator deployment is optional, so in this demo we wouldn't bother deploying it.

    OpenAPI and possibly developing reusable, versioned client libraries could help, but it's a major undertaking that gRPC makes redundant. I'd be tempted to use grpc-gateway even if I had to implement a REST API. Try looking into buf and monorepo structures for proto management, e.g. something like GoogleCloudPlatform/microservices-demo. For more thorough proto and grpc-gateway definition examples, see googleapis/googleapis.
  • Is it worth instrumenting with open-telemetry?

    I also just discovered Google Cloud's microservices-demo repository, which has some samples of how to set up otel observability and GCP-specific Go profiling on GCP. I wish I'd found it before setting up otel myself.

    My main inspiration in creating this project was the project that was used as an example for this Hackaton. That is, microservices-demo which is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license.

    Now we have Pyroscope running in our Kubernetes cluster, we will proceed with the steps of using the application with it. We will be using Google microservices, for this demo.
  • Microservices Architecture on Google Cloud

    > It is extremely difficult to change a monolith’s technology or language or framework because all components are tightly coupled and dependent on each other. As a result, even relatively small changes can require lengthy development and deployment times.

    I disagree with this so much. I have personally worked with Rails application monoliths and Node.js microservices and I can tell you that making changes on the monolith is muliple times easier mostly depending on the code structure. I would take a properly structured monolith any day. This not only includes code/features but also deployments. Adding more services introduces more complexity in the deployment architecture as well.

    A good example of this is just by looking at the GitLab codebase https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab, it's a monolith but has good abstractions/structure vs say the Google Microservices Demo app https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/microservices-demo which is not tightly coupled but introduces more complexity from implementation to deployment.
