This month we have lots to update on, including an integration with Kyverno, how we are reducing cognitive load by consolidating resource recommendations, our release notes, and office hours tomorrow, Wednesday 9/19 at 2 PM ET / 11 AM PT.
The new integration with the open source Kubernetes native policy management tool enables Kyverno users to have a single view into cluster health and policy enforcement in the Fairwinds Insights platform. We added the integration to enable platform teams to increase visibility into Kyverno-generated findings by pulling them into a single view with results from Polaris and Open Policy Agent. This makes Kyverno policy findings more useful, actionable, and fixable and enables developers to leverage those findings at scale.
Fairwinds is also consolidating existing Action items from Prometheus and Goldilocks into a single finding. With this release, users will now see one Action Item per container in need of right-sizing, instead of up to four separate events when CPU or Memory is Too High or Too Low.
We are consolidating these recommendations into a single event type because it provides you with significant benefits:
We also want to share expected behavior and impact ahead of this release:
We believe these consolidated recommendations will improve your experience, reduce information overload, and accelerate remediation. We appreciate your feedback, so please let us know if you have questions or concerns about this upcoming release.
