How do I monitor specific Kubernetes infrastructure resource types?

How do I monitor specific resource types like Pods, Containers, and Deployments?

To monitor specific resource types of Kubernetes like Pods, Containers, and Deployments:


  1. Log in to your Site24x7 account.

  2. Go to Admin > Inventory > Configuration Rules. Click Add Rule.

  3. Enter a proper Display Name and Description. Define the Criteria as Kubernetes.

  4. Define the Action as Add Resource Type and choose the resources needed for monitoring.

  5. Save your changes.


These configuration rules will be applied only on newly added resources and we add monitors for those resources based on these rules. Already created monitors have to be removed manually using the Bulk Action option (Admin > Inventory > Bulk Action > Delete Monitors).
