Opspacks

  • Kubernetes: Kubernetes has rapidly grown in popularity and is considered a leading open-source container-orchestration technology for automating application deployment, scaling and management. To monitor this diverse and extensible open-source platform, Opsview has created an all-in-one Kubernetes Opspack that can monitor a Kubernetes setup hosted locally or on the cloud. Monitor live usage metrics such as CPU, Memory, Disk and Network Status from a Cluster level down to an individual pod level. Additionally, this Opspack collects other useful metrics such as HTTP statistics and file descriptors. The following Host Templates are available within this Opspack:

    • Application - Kubernetes - Cluster
    • Application - Kubernetes - Namespace
    • Application - Kubernetes - Node
    • Application - Kubernetes - Pod

This Opspack provides service checks for high-level status information about Services, Threads, Security Accounts Manager, Address Book, DNS, Database and Replication status. The following Host Templates are available within this Opspack:

    • Application - Active Directory - Services
    • Application - Active Directory - Threads
