Kubernetes - A Complete DevOps Cookbook

By: Murat Karslioglu

Overview of this book

Kubernetes is a popular open source orchestration platform for managing containers in a cluster environment. With this Kubernetes cookbook, you’ll learn how to implement Kubernetes using a recipe-based approach. The book will prepare you to create highly available Kubernetes clusters on multiple clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Azure, Alibaba, and on-premises data centers. Starting with recipes for installing and configuring Kubernetes instances, you’ll discover how to work with Kubernetes clients, services, and key metadata. You’ll then learn how to build continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines for your applications, and understand various methods to manage containers. As you advance, you’ll delve into Kubernetes' integration with Docker and Jenkins, and even perform a batch process and configure data volumes. You’ll get to grips with methods for scaling, security, monitoring, logging, and troubleshooting. Additionally, this book will take you through the latest updates in Kubernetes, including volume snapshots, creating high availability clusters with kops, running workload operators, new inclusions around kubectl and more. By the end of this book, you’ll have developed the skills required to implement Kubernetes in production and manage containers proficiently.

Logging for your Jenkins CI/CD environment

CI/CD pipelines can generate a great amount of metadata every day in busy build environments. Elasticsearch is the perfect platform for feeding this kind of data from Jenkins.

In this section, we will learn how to enable and access the logs of our Jenkins instance and analyze team efficiency.

Getting ready

All the operations mentioned in this recipe require a fully functional Jenkins deployment, as described in Chapter 3, Building CI/CD Pipelines, in the Setting up a CI/CD pipeline in Jenkins X section.

Clone the k8sdevopscookbook/src repository to your workstation to use the manifest files in the chapter10 directory:

$ git clone
$ cd src/chapter10

Make sure you have a Kubernetes cluster, Jenkins X, and an EFK stack ready and that kubectl has been configured so that you can manage the cluster resources.
