Hello San Francisco Kubernauts!

Lets kick off our 2020 meetups with a focus on improving application performance on K8s.

Randy Abernethy will present Instrumenting Microservices for K8s - How to Make Your Apps Optimally Operational.

Microservices need an operational tune-up in order to perform their best on Kubernetes. This talk dives into the essential additions needed for highly-efficient microservice deployments on Kubernetes. Randy will cover liveness probes, readiness probes, open metrics, logging necessities, & traceability, as well as best practices & strategies for implementation.

Second on the program, Chris Hanson will present Setting Effective CPU & Memory Limits for your K8s Apps.

Deploying a microservice on K8s is easy, keeping a microservice running is another story. Without your help, Kubernetes cannot know an app's resource requirements. Unattributed apps are likely to get evicted from one node after another. This talk delves into several techniques for effectively sizing pod resources, keeping apps & the nodes they run on happy.
