Wavefront by VMware Simplifies Kubernetes Monitoring
Containerjournal | December 02, 2019
Wavefront by VMware announced at the AWS re:Invent 2019 conference it has expanded the monitoring capabilities it provides for Kubernetes to include the ability to identify root causes using predefined Wavefront alerts based on Kubernetes events. In addition, Wavefront by VMware’s Kubernetes and Java Tracing Agent monitoring tools now can be deployed automatically via a zero-configuration installation process. The Wavefront Kubernetes Collector automatically discovers and instruments Java-based services using Wavefront Java Tracing Agent software, which is based on the open source Java Special Agent tracing software. Finally, a certified instance of OpenShift 4 Operator software for Wavefront by VMware is available in Operator Hub. Operator software is designed to make it easier to manage instances of application software deployed on top of Kubernetes, which provides the foundation for the Red Hat OpenShift application development and deployment platform.
