Optimize the performance of your containers

  • Real-time operational and health dashboards visualize node and pod resource data for easy-to-consume insights. Explore performance metrics and events for your cluster as a whole, or drill down to explore the performance of a given namespace, application, node, or pod.
  • Unique ability to drive auto-scaling based on rich historical data analysis stored within Circonus. This leads to efficient, novel auto-scaling strategies in a way that no other solution can.
  • SLO creation and compliance monitoring (coming soon)
  • Native StatsD collection support (coming soon)

Reduce mean time to resolution (MTTR) with actionable health-check insights

  • Health-check insights such as crash loops, disk and memory pressure, job and volume failures, errors, pod pending delays, and deployment glitches help you reduce MTTR and minimize negative impacts.
  • Turnkey alerting instantly notifies you when clusters become unhealthy and links to the dashboard where you can diagnose the issue.
  • Guided issue remediation pinpoints root causes to speed problem detection, while also detailing steps to resolution.

Deploy with ease and speed

  • Easy-to-install agent is ready to go in 10 minutes or less and data immediately begins to populate graphs.
  • Turnkey alerting and dashboards are available out-of-the-box with zero set-up or configuration required, allowing you to immediately automate your health monitoring.
  • Minimum configuration with initial (and ongoing) service discovery (coming soon).

How our Kubernetes monitoring works

The Circonus Kubernetes monitoring solution relies on a simple deployment of the Circonus Kubernetes Agent. This agent leverages the Kubernetes API Server and Kube State Metrics to retrieve metrics related to the cluster, nodes, pods, and containers. It then sends these metrics to Circonus via the Circonus Broker. Pods can also send app metrics to Circonus via HTTP or StatsD.

How our Kubernetes monitoring works

Support for multiple platforms

“With Circonus we have been able to merge application performance modeling with SLOs, Kubernetes monitoring, and traditional network and hardware monitoring at high (and growing!) scale.”

“The richness of this high frequency data allows us to understand user and systems behavior with a level of detail we haven’t experienced as an organization before now. The ability to perform real-time analysis on billions of data points drives how we think about, and debug, performance for millions of baseball fans. Combined with a monitoring-as-code approach, our engineers get all of this delicious data out of the box with little to no time spent.”
