Changelog

  • Fixed: The unprivileged version of Kubernetes integration was running as root after a restart of the container due to kubernetes/kubernetes#78308.
  • Fixed: Autodiscovery cache directory permissions got changed from 644 to 744 in order to let the nri-agent user write inside. This change was necessary to release an unprivileged version of the Kubernetes integration.

Notes

Follow standard procedures to install or update the New Relic integration for Kubernetes.

Changelog

Added: Support for kube-state-metrics (KSM) 1.5.

Added: The reason and message attributes are added to K8sPodSample. This will provide visibility into why a pod status is Failed.

For example, a pod that failed due to memory pressure on the node will report the following attributes:

  • Status: Failed
  • Reason: Evicted
  • Message: Pod The node was low on resource: [MemoryPressure]

It is possible to create an alert for any of these attributes.

Added: The memoryWorkingSetBytes attribute is added to K8sContainerSample. This metric is used by the OOMkiller to decide when a container is using too much memory compared to its limit and should therefore be killed. It will enable more precise monitoring of the memory usage for containers.

Changed: Always request metrics from kube-state-metrics in text format. In KSM's v1.5 this is the default regardless of the format requested.

Notes

Changelog

Added: namespaceName attribute was added to all the samples where the namespace attribute is present. This is to align with standard naming for attributes. Other examples: clusterName, podName, etc.

Deprecated: namespace attribute is deprecated. We recommend using namespaceName instead.

Notes

Follow standard procedures to install or update the New Relic integration for Kubernetes.

Changelog

Changed: Starting in version 1.5.0, the Kubernetes integration is not reporting the status of static pods anymore to avoid report an incorrect status.

The following Github Issue tracks the progress of the bugfix in Kubernetes source code: https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/issues/61717.

Notes

Follow standard procedures to install or update the New Relic integration for Kubernetes.

Changelog

Changed: Starting in version 1.4.0, the Kubernetes integration is using Alpine Linux as the base image.

With Alpine the new image is smaller (16 MB instead of the previous 85 MB) and more secure. Alpine reduces the number of packages and libraries to the bare minimum, thus reducing the attack surface.

Notes

Follow standard procedures to install or update the New Relic integration for Kubernetes.

Changelog

Added: Pod Volume metrics. Monitor disk volume space and inodes for Volumes and Persistent Volumes associated with pods. See the detailed list of attributes in the documentation.

Added: Cluster name is now added to agent data as the clusterName attribute so that you can easily correlate Kubernetes integration data with agent data.

Fixed: In version 1.3.0, the volume bytes and inodes usage percentage calculation were incorrect.

Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - 23:45

Notes

Follow standard procedures to install or update the New Relic integration for Kubernetes.

Changelog

Added: Add 'reason' metric for containers in the 'Terminated' status. In the previous versions, the 'reason' was already captured for the 'Waiting' status.

Changelog

Added: Support for specifying the Kubernetes API Host and Port by setting the 'KUBERNETES_SERVICE_HOST' and 'KUBERNETES_SERVICE_PORT' environment variables.
