Live Kubernetes Debugging with the Elastic Stack
Philipp Krenn lives to demo interesting technology. Having worked as a web, infrastructure, and database engineer for more than ten years, Philipp is now working as a developer advocate at Elastic — the company behind the open source Elastic Stack consisting of Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash. Based in Vienna, Austria, he is constantly traveling Europe and beyond to speak and discuss about open source software, search, databases, infrastructure, and security.
Your Kubernetes app is down. Your users start ranting on Twitter. Your boss is standing right behind you. What do you do now?
This talk walks you through a live debugging session without panicking:
* What do your health checks say?
* Where does your monitoring point you?
* Can you get more details from your application’s traces?
* Is there anything helpful in the logs?
* What the heck is even deployed?
We are using the open source Elastic Stack with a special focus on its Kubernetes integration with metadata enrichment and autodiscovery in combination with APM / tracing, metrics, logs, and health checks.
