Agent Installation: Git-based Configuration needs a way to set a custom CA for Kubernetes-based deployments
When deploying the Instana agent via helm chart to a Kubernetes cluster and utilizing the git-based configuration, there should be a way to update the CA certificates in the container for self-hosted, self-signed Git repositories commonly used in ...
Avoid abnormal termination false positives during Helm deployment
Use-case: During HELM deployment the old pods are expected to be stopped with a SIGKILL. So the event Instana is raising is technically correct, but absolutely expected. This FR is about adding more logica to such K8s events and Instana events avo...
Built-in Event: Kubernetes Node condition status event correlation between kubernetes node scaling events
Once our cluster scales down, usually, our node/nodes will be terminated status(or unknown). But it doesn’t mean our nodes are not healthy. It just scales down. We are getting many mentioned event notifications, and our engineers are missing the a...
What is your recommendation for monitoring memory usage for kubernetes pods/containers? So far we are using this in Instana: Kubernetes -> Container -> Memory Usage. (Prefer this as compared to pods because sidecars can get in the way) The p...
Show all information of the selected time period in the Kubernetes views
If a time period is selected and the user want to view Events and Pods of an kubernetes object (Deployment/Service/etc.) Instana only shows the Pods and the Events of the Pods that were "online" at the endpoint of the time period. For many users t...
Provide Kubernetes Persistent Volume and Persistent Volume Claim built-in metrics and Events
Provide Kubernetes Persistent Volume (PV) and Persistent Volume Claim (PVC) built-in metrics and Events. PV/PVC metrics are essential to monitoring applications storge, however, Instana doesn't provide built-in metrics nor Events to cover the stor...
Built-in Event: Abnormal termination correlation event with deployment markers
Kubernetes is gracefully terminating the resources. In new releases, our resources will be replaced with new ones. Kubernetes sends SIGTERM signal to pods.This signal lets the containers know they will be shut down soon. This behaviour causes lots...
Due to the increasingly complex nature of the network, we spend a lot of time tracking down connectivity issues. These issues might be due to an unknown firewall rule, a misconfigured network policy, or incorrect routing setup in Kubernetes. Addin...
