The popularity of Kubernetes changed the way how people deploy and run the software. It also brought additional complexity of Kubernetes itself, microservice architecture, short release cycles - all these became a challenge for monitoring systems. The truth is, adoption and popularity of Kubernetes had severe impact on monitoring ecosystem, on its design and tradeoffs.

The talk will cover what are monitoring challenges when operating Kubernetes, such as increased metrics volume, services ephemerality, pods churn, distributed tracing, etc. And how modern monitoring solutions are designed specifically to address these challenges and at what cost.
