How to monitor Redis with Prometheus

Redis is a simple – but very well optimized – key-value open source database that is widely used in cloud-native applications. In this article, you will learn how to monitor Redis with Prometheus, and the most important metrics you should be looking at. Despite its simplicity, Redis has become a key component of many Kubernetes and cloud applications. As a result, performance issues or problems with its resources can cause other components of the application to fail.


NIST 800-53 compliance for containers and Kubernetes

In this blog, we will cover the various requirements you need to meet to achieve NIST 800-53 compliance, as well as how Sysdig Secure can help you continuously validate NIST 800-53 requirements for containers and Kubernetes. NIST 800-53 rev4 is deprecated since 23 September 2021 Read about the differences between versions down below →


Smart gardening with a Raspi and Prometheus

Let’s build a smart gardening system with Prometheus and a Raspberry pi. Having plants at home can reduce your stress levels and make your home look more delightful. Seeing your indoor oasis growing gives us a sense of accomplishment and makes us feel proud… until you see that first brown leaf. That’s when you start doubting your green fingers.


What's new in Sysdig - August 2021

Welcome to another monthly update on what’s new from Sysdig! This month’s big announcement is our new support for Prometheus as a managed service. There are several individual features behind this which we cover in more detail below, but here is a summary: Also, Kubernetes 1.22 was released and we shared our review of what to look out for. Go check out our Kubernetes 1.22 – What’s new? post if you haven’t already.

Kubernetes monitoring with Sysdig

Kubernetes has multiple moving pieces that you need to monitor, such as the elements that make up the Control Plane. As your clusters grow, collecting metrics from all the Kubernetes sources becomes highly tedious. Comprehensive monitoring for Kubernetes reduces the operational complexity by providing the visibility you need to: Sysdig Monitor offers an out-of-the-box user experience for monitoring your Kubernetes environment, including pre-built dashboards and a comprehensive alerts library that you can use right away.

No pain... More gain! Sysdig Monitor radically simplifies monitoring integrations based on open source

Monitoring services and applications in just a few clicks – that’s the dream of every SRE and developer, but this is very difficult because most applications don’t expose metrics in a standardized format. This article will introduce the current pros and cons of the Prometheus exporters ecosystem and how we leveraged the power of the open-source exporters in Sysdig to radically simplify the user experience to allow you to monitor your applications in just a few clicks.


Monitoring Pi-hole: Having your Raspberry Pi, and eating it with Prometheus remote write!

Last year we cooked a holiday ham using Sysdig. Honestly, just revisiting that makes me hungry, but it got me thinking. What about dessert? Today, I’d like to discuss baking a pie and eating it with Prometheus Remote Write. But not just any pie: a Raspberry Pi. Specifically, I’d like to introduce you to Pi-hole, an open-source project that has become very popular in the community. In this article you’ll learn how easy is Monitoring Pi-hole with Prometheus Remote Write.


Sysdig offers remote write and more custom metrics for its managed Prometheus service

We are excited to announce that Prometheus Remote Write functionality is now generally available in Sysdig Monitor. This feature allows Prometheus users to easily push metrics directly from their Prometheus servers to Sysdig’s Managed Prometheus Service. Sysdig Monitor provides not only a scalable long term storage solution for custom metrics but also radically simplifies Prometheus monitoring.

Prometheus monitoring with Sysdig

Prometheus is the de-facto standard for monitoring Kuberentes and cloud-native applications. However, as your Prometheus environment grows, it gets more and more complicated to use and maintain. Prometheus exporters need to be selected, installed, configured, and updated. And PromQL has a steep learning curve. How can you focus on your business, instead of building a monitoring solution?
