Monitoring Application Costs on Kubernetes

Gurusreekanth Chagalakondu   

Multiple deciding metrics attribute to the cost of running and deploying a containerized application on Kubernetes. Lack of knowledge and insight into these metrics poses a twofold challenge of unanticipated costs accrued at the end of the billing cycle and, allocating and monitoring this cost associated with efficiently deploying workloads across multi-cloud infrastructures, business units, and services.

In this demo led talk, we’ll touch upon these metrics and how they impact the cost and demonstrate how Purser, an open source project provides not only visibility into these metrics and help make important cost decisions by fine-tuning these metrics but also the capability to distribute cost among user-defined logical groupings based on CRDs implementation for enhanced filtering in a cloud-agnostic manner.
