A Prometheus CloudWatch exporter is a key element for anyone wanting to monitor AWS CloudWatch. Exporting CloudWatch metrics to a Prometheus server allows leveraging of the power of PromQL queries, integrating AWS metrics with those from other applications or cloud providers, and creating advanced dashboards for digging down into problems. But, who watches the watcher? Despite those advantages, using the wrong exporter or an incorrect configuration can have bad consequences in production environments.

A few weeks ago, we announced that Sysdig is offering fully compatible Prometheus monitoring at scale for our customers, as well as a new website called hosting a curated repository of Prometheus exporters, dashboards and alerts. This got me thinking about how we were actually able to implement the changes necessary to offer this in our platform.

Chances are, if you’re not already moving applications to containers and Kubernetes, you’re considering it. However, it’s likely that security and compliance implications are something you haven’t fully thought through. Addressing container security risks later in the development life cycle negatively impacts the pace of cloud adoption while simultaneously raising security and compliance risks. The use of containers and Kubernetes changes your security calculus.

In this blog post, we’re going to explain how to monitor Open Policy Agent (OPA) Gatekeeper with Prometheus metrics. If you have deployed OPA Gatekeeper, monitoring this admission controller is as relevant as monitoring the rest of the Kubernetes control plane components, like APIserver, kubelet or controller-manager. If something breaks here, Kubernetes won’t deploy new pods in your cluster; and if it’s slow, your cluster scale performance will degrade.

Attend our webinar about PCI compliance in containers & Kubernetes: Download our PCI Guide: More info in our blog: Many of your applications are now starting to run on containers in the cloud. If your applications are at all dealing with credit card data, you may be wondering how to validate PCI compliance, a well known regulation for handling this data securely. PCI is also a must have requirement to check off before your code gets to production.
