BuildPiper enables teams to get deep insights into the current deployment status. This helps them to get updates on multiple aspects. Let's take a look at these aspects.
Deployment status involves monitoring various factors such as the status of the deployment process, the number of successful & failed deployments, the availability & performance of the deployed application and the feedback from end-users. Deployment status helps teams to identify issues or problems that may need to be addressed.
BuildPiper enables technology teams to get deep insights into the current deployment status allowing them to,
- View Deployment Conditions
- View Container Status
- View Number of Replicas
- Change Current Replication
- View YAML Files
- Identify Reasons for Deployment Failures
Let's read about the comprehensive visibility of deployment status provided by the product based on different parameters mentioned above.
The condition of deployment refers to the condition of an application after it has been deployed in a particular environment. It exhibits and monitors various factors such as the availability & uptime of the application, the response time & performance of the application, the number & severity of errors or issues that are occurring, and the security status of the deployed application.
Container status refers to the current condition of a container in a container-based virtualization environment. It is used to monitor the health and performance of a container. Kubernetes monitors the container status and then takes actions such as scaling the number of containers up or down based on demand. It helps to ensure that the containers are running efficiently and reliably.
Replication status refers to the current state of a set of replicas, which are multiple instances of a pod running the same application or service. With BuildPiper, you can view the number of,
- Total Replicas
- Ready Replicas
- Available Replicas
- Non-available Replicas
The number of replicas can be set manually and the service will be scaled to the updated number of replicas.
YAML (YAML Ain't Markup Language) is a human-readable data serialization format used for configuration files, data exchange, and other applications where data needs to be stored or transmitted in a machine-readable format. These are used to store configuration information for applications, including database connection strings, API keys, and other settings. Teams can view the YAML files of the resources during the service deployment which include,
- Replica Set Yaml
- Pod Yaml
- Deployment Yaml
You can easily know what went wrong and identify reasons for failed deployments. View the custom conditions with the ability to pinpoint Kubernetes deployment failure scenarios.
