Isovalent & Grafana: A match made in Hive-an!

Grafana Labs and Isovalent bring Cilium integration for eBPF-powered Observability  

Learn how Isovalent & Grafana team up to provide powerful observability for service connectivity, made possible by innovations at the Linux kernel layer eBPF, with eBPF and Cilium, led by Isovalent.

Isovalent & Grafana: A match made in Hive-an!

Why is this a match made in Hive-an?

With the shift to architecting applications as API-driven services, understanding the health and performance of the connectivity layer between apps is more critical than ever. Traditional mechanisms like network monitoring devices or cloud provider network flow logs fall short because they either require application modifications or rely on sidecar-based service meshes that affect performance.

  • Grafana is partnering with Isovalent to enable deep insights for the connectivity between applications running on Kubernetes.
  • The combination of Grafana + Isovalent simplifies achieving consistent observability across all types of underlying private and public cloud infrastructure.

Golden Signals with Hubble and Grafana

One of the most important thing when running applications in an environment like Kubernetes is to have good observability and deep insights. However, for many organizations it can be challenging to update existing applications to provide the observability you need. With Cilium, you can use the Hubble Layer 7 visibility functionality to get Prometheus metrics for your application without having to modify it at all. In this lab you will learn how Cilium can provide metrics for an existing application with and without tracing functionality, and how you can use Grafana dashboards provided by Cilium to gain insight into how your application is behaving.
