Monitoring is a key aspect of running containerized applications at scale. Though there are quite a few tools out there, Prometheus, an open source project managed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, seems to be the preferred tool of numerous cloud-native infrastructures.

Many Prometheus guides are available explaining how Prometheus can be used to monitor cloud-native applications running in a Kubernetes cluster; how Prometheus may be run in a Kubernetes cluster; and how Prometheus can be set up to monitor a Kubernetes cluster.

At the same time, numerous real-life cloud-native deployment scenarios assume running multiple Kubernetes clusters across different environments – separation due to the nature of the environment (dev, QA, prod, etc.), availability concerns (different regions or availability zones), or hybrid nature of the applications (data center, cloud).

As a Prometheus deployment normally requires significant resources, it may be beneficial to consolidate the monitoring infrastructure for multiple Kubernetes clusters and cloud-native applications.

In this session, Serge will showcase how Prometheus can be used to effectively collect metrics from multiple clusters and share challenges and lessons learned.
