Hey guys, we just built a tool to help understand why the cluster autoscaler is scaling up or down. It’s also generally useable to determine whether nodes are safe to turn down whether you use autoscaling or not. We wrote a blog post about it, here’s a pre-release draft: https://medium.com/@ajaytripathy/understanding-kubernetes-cluster-autoscaling-675099a1db92 . Would love any feedback!
One of the great promises of using Kubernetes is that it has the ability scale your infrastructure dynamically based on user demand.

@Jan sorry for just seeing this… here’s the link to our first pilot install doc! it would be awesome to get your initial thoughts. all feedback is welcome https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_aYbaq6IZR4tpeltA8HzWnnEhODhMZF0eysfv3VbzPg/edit
@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) does it look like this setup process will fit with the way you build helm charts?

I was telling @Jan about KubeCost today
One of his top priorities is to reduce spend by moving to k8s. It’s too early for them right now, but I think KubeCost directly suits their use-case.
@webb gave me an awesome demo yesterday
can’t wait to add it to our distribution

awesome, we’re available to help any time @Jan!
thanks for creating the channel and the shoutout @Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)
plus they have some other dashboards to help “right size” pods
Yea it will suit our needs really well
And will start to be useful nearly right away
Grafana based in even better
We will be moving all monitoring away from new relic and into in cluster prometheous / grafana during our migration as is

Nice, @Jan! Lots more functionality on the way. Happy to discuss everything that we’re building if it will be helpful.
I’m used to building functionality like this specifically for k8s and aws so I may be of use for feedback and deep diving
