Splunk Lantern

Monitor CPU utilization for no-limit pod configuration situations


  • Product: Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring
  • Feature: Container monitoring
  • Audience: Site Reliability Engineers and Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring Administrators

This capability is part of the Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring value realization path, intended to get you up and running with bite-sized, self-contained use cases based on the most common problems that our customers seek to address using Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring.


You work for a large organization that uses the Kubernetes container management platform. You don't have any pod limits set and are finding that more CPU usage can be consumed than intended, consuming the resources of the node and causing it to run out.


You can monitor node CPU usage within Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring to stay on top of this situation, reducing the impact to your customers.
