Kubernetes (https://kubernetes.io/) has become the de-facto standard orchestrator for deploying modern cloud-native applications that employ micro-services-based architectures in which such micro-services are typically deployed via containers. Kubernetes uses abstractions of pods, namespaces, labels, selectors, specs operators and other various constructs that make it easy for application developers to rapidly deploy their workloads for test, development, and production environments. Such mixed/hybrid cloud environments make it challenging for Information Technology (IT) operators to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot such environments and implement consistent security policies. Accordingly, presented herein is a novel user interface dashboard through which automated network monitoring, troubleshooting, and visibility of containerized workloads can be viewed/managed, regardless of where the workloads are deployed in the cloud.
