KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2019

May 21 - Tom Wilkie, Intro: Cortex
May 22 - Tom Wilkie, Deep Dive: Cortex
Cortex provides horizontally scalable, highly available, multi-tenant, long term storage for Prometheus metrics, and a horizontally scalable, Prometheus-compatible query API. Cortex allows users to deploy a centralised, globally aggregated view of all their Prometheus instances, storing data indefinitely. In this talk we will discuss the benefits of, and how to deploy, a fully disaggregated, microservice oriented Cortex architecture. We'll also discuss some of the challenges operating Cortex at scale, and what the future holds for Cortex. Cortex is a CNCF sandbox project.

May 23 - Tom Wilkie, Grafana Loki: Like Prometheus, But for logs.
Loki is a horizontally-scalable, highly-available log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be cost effective and easy to operate, as it does not index the contents of the logs, but rather labels for each log stream.

Loki initially targets Kubernetes logging, using Prometheus service discovery to gather labels for log streams. As such, Loki enables you to easily switch between metrics and logs, streamlining the incident response process - a workflow we have built into the latest version of Grafana.

In this talk we will discuss the motivation behind Loki, its design and architecture, and what the future holds. Its early days after the launch at KubeCon Seattle, but so far the response to the project has been overwhelming, with more the 4.5k GitHub stars and over 12hrs at the top spot on Hacker News.

May 23 - David Kaltschmidt, Fool-Proof Kubernetes Dashboards for Sleep-Deprived Oncalls
Software running on Kubernetes can fail in various, but surprisingly well-defined ways. In this intermediate-level talk David Kaltschmidt shows how structuring dashboards in a particular way can be a helpful guide when you get paged in the middle of the night. Reducing cognitive load makes oncall more effective. When dashboards are organized hierarchically on both the service and the resource level, troubleshooting becomes an exercise of divide and conquer. The oncall person can quickly eliminate whole areas of problems and zone in on the real issue. At that point a single service or instance should have been identified, for which more detailed debugging can take place.

InfluxDays London 2019

David Kaltschmidt - Mixing metrics and logs with Grafana + Influx
Grafana's new Explore area is adding support for both metric and logs display for the Influx datasource. This allows you to quickly access your metrics, and as part of troubleshooting, bring up related logs. We'll also look at the latest support for Flux inside Grafana.
