Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Rancher contains a variety of tools that aren’t included in Kubernetes to assist in your DevOps operations. Rancher can integrate with external services to help your clusters run more efficiently. Tools are divided into following categories:
Notifiers are services that inform you of alert events. You can configure notifiers to send alert notifications to staff best suited to take corrective action. Notifications can be sent with Slack, email, PagerDuty, WeChat, and webhooks.
Alerts are rules that trigger notifications. Before you can receive alerts, you must configure one or more notifier in Rancher. The scope for alerts can be set at either the cluster or project level.
For details on project-level alerts, see this page.
Logging is helpful because it allows you to:
Rancher can integrate with Elasticsearch, splunk, kafka, syslog, and fluentd.
For details on setting up logging at the cluster level, refer to the logging section.
