Last Updated: Nov. 21, 2023

Coralogix’s Kubernetes Complete Observability provides a comprehensive solution for full-stack observability in your Kubernetes environment.


View all of your nodes, pods and cluster metrics, pod logs, and Kubernetes events, as well as your distributed traces pipeline. Take advantage of our Kubernetes Dashboard using out pre-configured OpenTelemetry Collector.

Utilizing OpenTelemetry, we ensure seamless and automated data collection from various components of your stack. This enables you to not only monitor infrastructure health, but also gain insights into application behavior and inter-service dependencies. Troubleshoot issues, optimize performance, and manage your cluster more effectively with a 360-degree view of your Kubernetes ecosystem.

  • Helm (v3.9+) installed and configured
