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 and performance analysis using Sysdig

In this section, we will use Sysdig Monitor to monitor and simplify Kubernetes troubleshooting. You will learn how to install Sysdig Monitor and extend Prometheus functionality to meet more advanced enterprise needs.

Getting ready

All operations mentioned here require a Sysdig account. If you don't have one, go to and create a trial or full account.

For this recipe, we need to have a Kubernetes cluster ready and the Kubernetes command-line tools kubectl and helm installed to manage the cluster resources.

How to do it…

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

  • Installing the Sysdig agent
  • Analyzing application performance

Installing the Sysdig agent

Sysdig Monitor is a tool for monitoring and troubleshooting applications available as part of the Sysdig Cloud Native Visibility and Security Platform. In this recipe, you will learn to deploy Sysdig Monitor...
