Monitoring your resources

To get information on your resources, you can use kubectl.

Before you begin

To complete these steps, you need existing Config Connector resources. For an example resource, see Getting started with Config Connector.

Listing all resources

You can list the resources that Config Connector manages with, by running the following command:

kubectl get gcp

Determining a resource's status

You can determine if your resource is ready by looking at its status.condition. Config Connector updates the status to reflect the current state of your resource.

kubectl wait --for=condition=READY KIND NAME

Replace the following:

  • KIND: your resource's kind. For example, PubSubTopic.
  • NAME: your resource's name

Viewing events

Config Connector creates Kubernetes events with information and errors about managing resources. You can view events for a specific resource, or all events in your Config Connector environment.

Viewing events for a single resource

You can view the events for a single resource by examining the Events field in the output of the following command:

kubectl describe KIND NAME

Replace the following:

  • KIND: your resource's kind
  • NAME: your resource's name

For example, if you had a Config Connector SpannerInstance resource named spannerinstance-sample, use the following command to view its events:

kubectl describe spannerinstance spannerinstance-sample

Viewing events for a namespace

To see the events for all Kubernetes resources in a given namespace, including your Config Connector resources, run the following command:

kubectl --namespace CC_NAMESPACE get events

Replace CC_NAMESPACE with the namespace Config Connector manages resources from.

Config Connector-specific events

Config Connector can create the following event types:

Updating
Occurs when a Config Connector resource's underlying Google Cloud resource is being updated.
UpToDate
Occurs when a Config Connector resource's reconciliation has succeeded. This event type means that the underlying Google Cloud resource now matches the desired state specified by the Config Connector resource.
UpdateFailed
Occurs when a Config Connector resource's reconciliation has failed.
DependencyNotReady
Occurs when a referenced Config Connector resource is not ready. You can determine whether a resource is ready by checking its status.
DependencyNotFound
Occurs when a referenced Config Connector resource or Kubernetes Secret is not found.
DependencyInvalid
Occurs when a reference is invalid. For example, suppose a Config Connector resource that references a Kubernetes Secret. If the Secret exists, but if it does not contain the key that is being referenced, then the reference is said to be invalid.
Deleting
Occurs when Config Connector resource is being deleted from the Kubernetes API Server.
Deleted
Occurs when a Config Connector resource has successfully been deleted from the Kubernetes API Server.
DeleteFailed
Occurs when a Config Connector resource has failed to be deleted from the Kubernetes API Server.
ManagementConflict
Occurs when a Config Connector resource fails to take ownership of the underlying Google Cloud resource. When this occurs, it is usually because another Config Connector resource already has ownership of the Google Cloud resource. Read more about how Config Connector handles conflicts between multiple Config Connector resources.
