Sysdig Unveils Sysdig Advisor for Simplified Kubernetes Troubleshooting

Unified cloud and container security firm Sysdig has announced the availability of Sysdig Advisor. This Kubernetes troubleshooting solution helps consolidate and prioritize relevant performance metrics in Sysdig Monitor.

Kubernetes’ complexity, with its numerous components and variables, would make debugging and prioritizing activities incredibly challenging. It might be difficult to know where to start debugging or what to search for.

“Kubernetes is complex, with countless components and variables that make it difficult to understand how, why, and when something goes wrong,” said Loris Degioanni, Founder and CTO at Sysdig.

According to Sysdig, to analyze the problem and seek for the main cause, operations teams and SREs are frequently required to use the command line interface and use tools like kubectl. Because Kubernetes-based applications have so many moving elements, remediation could take hours or even days, reducing availability and negatively hurting the end-user experience.

Sysdig Advisor would help operators, developers, and site reliability engineering (SRE) teams to solve Kubernetes issues quickly while reducing the number of tools required by offering a single view of performance and event information.

Debugging Kubernetes Issues

Sysdig Advisor would display all relevant capacity, event, alert, and Kubernetes troubleshooting information with a single click of a button. Users can rapidly dive down when looking for the source of a performance issue since this information is displayed in the context of Kubernetes objects. Sysdig Advisor presents a prioritized list of issues and related live logs to highlight the most serious issues and speed up response time.

“Kubernetes is complex, with countless components and variables that make it difficult to understand how, why, and when something goes wrong,” said Loris Degioanni, Founder and CTO at Sysdig. “Any SRE knows the pain of wading through multiple tools and getting multiple teams involved when troubleshooting an alert. Now with Sysdig Advisor, they can efficiently debug Kubernetes issues and get back to work on deploying new releases.”

To sum up, key benefits of the new Sysdig Advisor solution would include:

  • Accelerates Kubernetes troubleshooting – Sysdig Advisor generates a prioritized list of concerns, allowing administrators to see which Kubernetes issues need to be addressed first. Teams can tackle Kubernetes issues quicker using Sysdig Advisor when compared to traditional techniques because it reduces the time it takes to obtain essential information, such as capacity, utilization, event, and alert data for clusters, namespaces, workloads, and pods.
  • Reduces troubleshooting resource count – To debug Kubernetes setups, Sysdig Advisor would eliminat the requirement for side-by-side comparisons of blogs, dashboards, logs, and command line output. The user interface presents all pertinent information in a single unified tool with a selected, practical set of repair activities.
  • Increases troubleshooting access without increasing security risk – Access to command-line tools like kubectl is typically a source of worry for security teams. Sysdig Advisor would give people across the enterprise rapid access to the same level of information without being unduly liberal.
