In this tutorial, I will help you set up and deploy kwatch on your Kubernetes cluster to monitor Persistent Volumes (PV) usage and detect crashes in your running apps.
Plus, integrate with Teams to get notified on a channel when volume usage is higher than a threshold.
You can integrate with your favorite channel as kwatch supports integrations with (Slack, Discord, Email, PagerDuty, Telegram, Rocket Chat, Mattermost, Opsgenie, Matrix, DingTalk, FeiShu, And Custom webhook).
Configure kwatch with Teams
Step 1: Get webhook
First of all, we need to get the webhook URL of the channel you want the notification to be received on it. (Here is how to get it)
Step 2: Get Configuration
Get the configuration template
curl -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abahmed/kwatch/v0.8.3/deploy/config.yaml -o config.yaml
Step 3: Edit config.yaml with the corresponding config
For more configurations check here
Step 4: Apply Configuration
kubectl apply -f config.yaml
Deploy kwatch on your cluster with one command
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/abahmed/kwatch/v0.8.3/deploy/deploy.yaml
After deploying you will get notified on the channel that kwatch has started successfully. Now, kwatch is monitoring your volumes and apps!
Here is an example of kwatch messages when volume usage exceeds the threshold
