💻 About the project

Robusta is both an automations engine for Kubernetes, and a multi-cluster observability platform.

Robusta is commonly used alongside Prometheus, but other tools are supported too.

By listening to all the events in your cluster, Robusta can tell you why alerts fired, what happened at the same time, and what you can do about it.

Robusta can either improve your existing alerts, or be used to define new alerts triggered by APIServer changes.

🛠️ How it works

Robusta's behaviour is defined by rules like this:

  - on_prometheus_alert:
      alert_name: KubePodCrashLooping
  - logs_enricher: {}
  - slack

In the above example, whenever the KubePodCrashLooping alert fires, Robusta will fetch logs from the right pod and attach them to the alert. The result looks like this:

Robusta also supports alert-remediations:

Over 50 types of automations and enrichments are built-in »
