Pixie integration: pods frequently OOMKilled

Problem

You have completed the installation procedure for New Relic's Pixie integration but one or more vizier-pem pods are frequently being OOMKilled.

Solution

Part of the benefit of deploying on Kubernetes is that Kubernetes will OOMKill pods that are using too many resources to protect the other pods in the cluster.

When Pixie's vizier-pem pods exceed the memory limit, they are OOMKilled. Kubernetes does this to protect the other applications, so it won't cause problems on other pods. For vizier-pem pods that are regularly being OOMKilled, try deploying Pixie with more memory.
