Frequently asked questions and their answers

What is FreshTracks?

FreshTracks.io is a hosted SaaS solution that simplifies Kubernetes visibility by empowering engineers to see, understand, and pinpoint container behavior and instability. Current container monitoring tools do an excellent job collecting metrics about the state of applications, but they fall short when providing dynamic anomaly detection to allow engineers to act based on those metrics. Using machine learning, FreshTracks.io identifies and correlates anomalies to provide your engineers with intelligent alerts and dashboards.

Who should use FreshTracks?

FreshTracks is a tool for operators and developers. FreshTracks simplifies visibility into Kubernetes to help engineers and operators pinpoint container and application instability. We correlate infrastructure and application metrics to provide actionable alerts that improve the availability and stability of your system.
