Kubernetes sophistication brings its own challenges when it comes to monitoring production clusters. The success of a Kubernetes deployment depends on a strong monitoring solution that SREs and operations teams to visualize the deployment, monitor key SLAs around services and zoom into the problem as quickly as possible.

In this whitepaper, we provide details on Netsil's "map and monitor" approach for addressing Kubernetes monitoring challenges. Netsil is able to present the operators a simplified view of the application including Kubernetes pods, namespaces and services using a live, auto-discovered application topology.
