Sysdig Unveils New Problem Solving for Kubernetes and Cloud Innovations

Sysdig has introduced two innovations that aim to amplify cloud services and simplify Kubernetes troubleshooting.

The company announced Sysdig Advisor as a Kubernetes troubleshooting feature that consolidates and prioritizes relevant performance details in a customer’s Sysdig Monitor. It seems to provide operations, developers, and SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) teams to solve problems faster while reducing the number of tools needed.

The new technology presents all relevant information about capacity, events, alerts, and troubleshooting in a simple format, so there is less recovery time and a better user experience.

A prioritized list of issues and related live logs enable users to find key problem areas and speed up time to resolution. The system can be used in multiple Kubernetes environments across various industries.

Experian Health DevOps engineer Jeff Henson says the technology enables the company to maintain critical work processes and identify problems faster.

“If we get an alert for an issue in our Kubernetes environment, troubleshooting can involve multiple tools and teams, increasing our MTTR. Having this information at our fingertips in Sysdig Advisor will help us understand these issues faster and solve them,” he says.

The technology reduces the reliance on a side-by-side comparison of blogs, dashboards, logs, and command-line output required to troubleshoot Kubernetes environments. It also increases troubleshooting access without increasing security risk and speeds up troubleshooting up to ten times.

“Kubernetes is complex, with numerous components and variables that make it difficult to understand how, why, and when things go wrong,” said Sysdig founder and CTO Loris Degioanni.

“Every SRE knows the pain of rummaging through multiple tools and involving multiple teams in resolving an alert. Now with Sysdig Advisor, they can efficiently diagnose issues and get back to deploying new releases.”

The company has also announced that Sysdig Open Source will be extended to secure cloud services. Thanks to the new integration, any Falco plugin can be used for Sysdig OSS.

Sysdig OSS captures processes, file systems, and network activity in real time and with high granularity. This makes it easier to expose everything from command executions and file system activity to network activity.

The cloud technology also provides advanced filtering and troubleshooting capabilities to support root-cause analysis for security and performance issues. Sysdig OSS and Falco can be used together as a powerful open-source solution to mitigate risk at runtime, with Falco acting as a security camera and continuously detecting unexpected events.

“If you want to see what’s happening in an application, Sysdig OSS gives you that record,” Degioanni says.

“Sysdig open source was the inspiration for Falco. While Falco will monitor and warn based on your policy, Sysdig open source will tell you what happened at any given time, before and after the event. Having the ability to use both open source tools in the cloud is extremely powerful.”
