Monitor Kubernetes in Production with Automated Dashboards

by Jameson Haas on April 7, 2020

With the recent release of automated dashboards with BindPlane for Google Cloud Monitoring, it is now easier than ever to fully monitor Kubernetes in production. To ensure everything is functioning as it should, you need to make sure your containers, clusters, pods and nodes are working in tandem. With all of the moving parts, monitoring the health and performance of your Kubernetes environment can be troublesome. To help, BindPlane makes it easy to monitor everything in a centralized location with, easy to use one-click automated dashboards.

Once BindPlane is configured for your environment, you’re just one click away from 27 production critical dashboards, including 5 individual dashboards to monitor Kubernetes in production.
