Come hang out with all your fellow Monitoring Weekly readers. I mean, I’m also there, but I’m sure everyone else is way cooler.

Running Kubernetes and thinking about monitoring it with Prometheus, but not sure how to get started? This is the definitive guide you’ve ben looking for.
If you can’t (or don’t want to) use Promtail, it’s now possible to push your logs directly to Loki. Lots of useful bits about Python and Loki logging internals. A great read.
Congratulations to the OpenTelemetry project on reaching their GA milestone for Tracing components! 🎉
If you’ve been asleep for the past five years, this is a great way to get caught up on the past and present of Observability as an industry practice.
We’ve covered the Monika project a couple times this year. Looks like they’ve added some new alerting features and more flexible capabilities added to the project.
On the other hand, if you’re feeling adventurous and thinking about writing your own website-monitoring Monika knock-off, this article has you covered.
In a cloud-native world, it shouldn’t surprise me that we don’t see more network monitoring articles. I’m probably one of the few who gets excited to see articles about SNMP, but this one’s a doozy.
This tool feels like a throwback to old school debugging utilities, but intentionally designed to leverage modern technologies like cgroups and eBPF. Good stuff.

We'll even supply the GCP resources if you just want to see how it works. Get started today. (SPONSORED)
A new open source project for Kubernetes monitoring and visualization. I’m not sure why you’d prefer this over something like Prometheus and Grafana (which are dependencies, btw) but surely the developers had their reasons.
Not gonna lie, I didn’t even realize this was a problem for Loki users… and I’m surprised it made it this far before being fixed. Regardless, nice to see it fixed in Loki v2.4.
Another good article on SLOs and why they’re important. This is one of those topics that I’m happy to keep revisiting because it really does matter.
“A time traveling resource monitor for modern Linux systems.”
“Kubermetrics is an open-source dev tool that provides Kubernetes cluster monitoring as well as data visualization in a simple and easy to understand user interface.”
“Python logging handler for Loki.”
