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.

Monitoring using Google Stackdriver

In this section, we will use Google Stackdriver Kubernetes Engine Monitoring to monitor, isolate, and diagnose your containerized applications and microservices environments. You will learn how to use Stackdriver Kubernetes Engine Monitoring to aggregate logs, events, and metrics from your Kubernetes environment on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) to help you understand your application's behavior in production.

Getting ready

Make sure you have a GKE cluster ready and kubectl configured to manage the cluster resources. If you don't already have one, you can follow the instructions in Chapter 1, Building Production-Ready Kubernetes Clusters, in the Configuring a Kubernetes cluster on Google Cloud Platform recipe.

How to do it…

This section is further divided into the following subsections to make the process easier:

  • Installing Stackdriver Kubernetes Engine Monitoring support for GKE
  • Configuring a workspace on Stackdriver
  • Monitoring...
