Observing Kubernetes workloads on AWS Fargate with AWS managed open-source services

AWS constantly innovates on its customers’ behalf and strives to improve customer experience by reducing complexity. With AWS, customers look to spend their time solving business problems without worrying about operating their infrastructure. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) on AWS Fargate allows customers to run Kubernetes pods without worrying about creating and managing the lifecycle […]

Monitoring GPU workloads on Amazon EKS using AWS managed open-source services

As machine learning (ML) workloads continue to grow in popularity, many customers are looking to run them on Kubernetes with graphics processing unit (GPU) support. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances powered by NVIDIA GPUs deliver the scalable performance needed for fast ML training and cost-effective ML inference. Monitoring GPU utilization gives valuable information for researchers working […]

Monitor Amazon EKS Control Plane metrics using AWS Open Source monitoring services

Have you encountered situations where your Kubernetes API calls are constantly throttled by the control plane? Did you see the 429 HTTP response code “Too many requests” all over the place and have no clue on what’s wrong with your cluster? In this blog post, we will talk about monitoring some of the key metrics […]
