How these concerns could be relieved with NexClipper

  • Complexity: NexClipper provides you with a more simplified setup process than ever before; NexClipper uses NexAgent, an agent that replaces node exporter, Kube-state-metrics, cAdvisor.
  • Lack of training: Full stack monitoring allows you to easily understand container status even for non-skilled employees and even reduce learning curves.
  • Monitoring: With NexClipper, you can monitor each layer that should be monitored. To be specific, you are able to monitor containers, agents, and hosts which allows you to get full-stack insights.
  • Storage: In terms of storage, Prometheus is commonly used to monitor Kubernetes.  NexClipper uses InfluxDB as default for long-term storage and gives you an option to integrate Prometheus depending on your preference.
