Pixie is an open source observability tool for Kubernetes applications. Use Pixie to view the high-level state of your cluster (service maps, cluster resources, application traffic) and also drill-down into more detailed views (pod state, flame graphs, individual full-body application requests).
Three features enable Pixie’s magical developer experience:
Click the Deploy to DigitalOcean button to install a Kubernetes 1-Click Application. If you aren’t logged in, this link will prompt you to log in with your DigitalOcean account.
In addition to creating Pixie using the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API. As an example, to create a 3 node DigitalOcean Kubernetes cluster made up of Basic Droplets in the SFO2 region, you can use the following
doctl command. You need to authenticate with
doctl with your API access token) and replace the
$CLUSTER_NAME variable with the chosen name for your cluster in the command below.
doctl kubernetes clusters create --size s-4vcpu-8gb $CLUSTER_NAME --1-clicks pixie
You must have either:
px deploy-key create.
values.yml with the deployKey from above.
