Apache 2.0

Project Description

Satellite is an agent written in Go for collecting health information in a kubernetes cluster. It is both a library and an application. As a library, it can be used as a basis for a custom monitoring solution. The health status information is collected in the form of a time series and persisted to the sqlite backend. Additional backends are supported via an interface.

The original design goals are:

  • lightweight periodic testing
  • high availability and resilience to network partitions
  • no single point of failure
  • history of health data as a time series

The agents communicate over a [Gossip] protocol implemented by serf.
