DaemonSets in OpenShift and Kubernetes

There are times when running the same application on every node in a specific set of nodes in a cluster, or even the entire cluster is required. These are usually applications that provide some kind of system management functionality. Examples include storage processes which use local storage devices attached to the nodes, and log consolidation and diagnostic services which often feed data into an AIOps solution.

What is Prometheus - How is it Used When Monitoring Istio?

Kubernetes doesn’t come with built-in monitoring capabilities. Instead, it relies on the open source ecosystem to build tools for vital operational tasks like monitoring. CNCF is the governing body that oversees the development of such projects. Two of the most successful CNCF projects to date are Prometheus and Istio. Prometheus for monitoring, and Istio to manage network communication in the form of a service mesh.

OpenTracing: State-of-the-Art For OpenTelemetry and Open Census

The term ‘Observability’ refers to the general term of inferring a particular state of a system based on its current outputs. This term was rather borrowed from the mathematical theory of linear dynamic systems, which in turn, is part of linear algebra.Don’t worry, you won’t be needing to dust off your old math books to understand what OpenTracing is.

Introduction to Site Reliability Automation, Enabled by AIOps from Broadcom

To support digital transformation, organizations are increasingly looking to site reliability engineering, or SRE, approaches to managing complex infrastructures and handling the pace of change induced by DevOps. When issues occur, it’s important to have an integrated toolset that can determine the root cause and apply remediation. In addition, the solution should understand the results of the remediation action, increasing the confidence level in applying the right actions to other similar issues. All of this results in site reliability automation - enhancing infrastructure monitoring with intelligent recommendations and auto-remediation capabilities to help SREs create more resilient production environments.

Best Practices for Implementing SecOps Processes

It’s easy to understand the value of SecOps, which refers to having security and operations teams collaborate in order to make applications and infrastructure as secure as possible. Things get more complicated, however, when it comes time to implement SecOps processes. Translating SecOps principles into on-the-ground practices is challenging, not least because security and operations teams historically have not tended to be closely connected.
