Monitor Kubernetes Cluster Health

Evaluate the availability and health of nodes within the cluster, enabling administrators to assess the need for cloud resources effectively. We offer valuable insights into the efficiency of each node by measuring resource utilization—such as memory, CPU, and disk usage. Scale your clusters appropriately, whether by reducing node size for cost efficiency or increasing resources to meet growing demands.

Centralized Visualization of K8s Events

Gain real-time visibility into your cluster's activities, enabling you to promptly identify issues like why a specific pod failed to start or a node became unreachable. You can easily filter events by specifying a particular pod name, node name, or event type (e.g., Warning or Error) to narrow your search and focus on the relevant events. By sorting events based on severity or timestamp, you can quickly pinpoint critical problems that require immediate attention.
