Recommendations

Recommended settings for monitoring and collecting metrics for Kubernetes, platform services, and applications deployed on the Konvoy cluster

At D2iQ, we conduct routine performance testing of Konvoy. The following table provides recommended settings, based on cluster size and increasing workloads, that maintain a healthy Prometheus monitoring deployment.

NOTE: The resource settings reflect some settings but do not represent the exact structure to be used in the Konvoy cluster.yaml.
