Sumo Logic


Kubernetes is an open source container orchestration platform.

The Sumo Logic App for Kubernetes allows you to monitor Kubernetes deployments that are self-managed by open source tools such as Kops. The preconfigured dashboards present resource-related metrics at the Kubernetes pod, cluster, and namespace level; and provide operational insight into Kubernetes components, including nodes, the API Server, the Controller Manager, the Kube System, and the Scheduler.

This App has been tested with Kops v1.80 and Kubectl v1.8.6. When using later versions of Kubernetes (1.9 and greater), some panels may not be populated, specifically panels that depend on logs from Kube Scheduler.  This is due to a change in the logs that Kube Scheduler produces. An updated collection process and app that accounts for these changes is being developed.

This app may not work with, or may require changes to work with, Managed Kubernetes Services such as Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Azure Container Service (AKS) and Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS).
