Enhancements

This section outlines new features implemented in the Cluster release 7.5.0 that is introduced in the Container Cloud release 2.15.0.


MCR version update

Updated the Mirantis Container Runtime (MCR) version from 20.10.6 to 20.10.8 for the Container Cloud management, regional, and managed clusters on all supported cloud providers.

Metric Collector alerts

Implemented the MCCLicenseExpirationCritical and MCCLicenseExpirationMajor alerts that notify about Mirantis Container Cloud license expiration in less than 10 and 30 days.

Improvements to StackLight alerting

Implemented the following improvements to StackLight alerting:

  • Enhanced Kubernetes applications alerting:

    • Reworked the Kubernetes applications alerts to minimize flapping, avoid firing during pod rescheduling, and to detect crash looping for pods that restart less frequently.

    • Added the KubeDeploymentOutage, KubeStatefulSetOutage, and KubeDaemonSetOutage alerts.

    • Removed the redundant KubeJobCompletion alert.

    • Enhanced the alert inhibition rules to reduce alert flooding.

    • Improved alert descriptions.

  • Split TelemeterClientFederationFailed into TelemeterClientFailed and TelemeterClientHAFailed to separate alerts depending on the HA mode disabled or enabled.

  • Updated the description for DockerSwarmNodeFlapping.

  • diskstats

  • entropy

  • filefd

  • filesystem
