Hi Experts,

For monitor OpenShift nodes, I install "Monitoring OpenShift - Metrics and Log Forwarding" splunk app, for this app collectord instances must be install on every node, but instead of collectord, can we use fluentd for monitoring pourpose ?
And also suggest the best way(or app) for monitor OpenShift.

Thanks

Hello,

Application "Monitoring OpenShift - Metrics and Log Forwarding" is distributed under the same license as Collectord (https://www.outcoldsolutions.com/docs/license-agreement/), if you have not obtained the license for our solution, using just the application without the license is a violating the license agreement of the application.

If you are looking for free solutions, please take a look at the https://github.com/splunk/splunk-connect-for-kubernetes

If you are interested to look at the performance comparison between Collectord and Fluentd - you can look at our blog post https://www.outcoldsolutions.com/blog/2018-11-19-performance-collectord-fluentd-fluentbit/

Thank you for understanding.
