silence-operator

The silence-operator manages alertmanager alerts.

Overview

CustomResourceDefinition

The silence-operator monitors the Kubernetes API server for changes to Silence objects and ensures that the current Alertmanager alerts match these objects. The Operator reconciles the Silence Custom Resource Definition (CRD) which can be found here.

How does it work

  1. Deployment runs the Kubernetes controller, which reconciles Silence CRs.
  2. Cronjob runs the synchronization of raw CRs definition from the specified folder by matching tags.

Sample CR:

apiVersion: monitoring.giantswarm.io/v1alpha1
kind: Silence
metadata:
  name: test-silence1
spec:
  targetTags:
  - name: installation
    value: kind
  - name: provider
    value: local
  matchers:
  - name: cluster
    value: test
    isRegex: false
  • targetTags field:
    • defines a list of tags, which sync command uses to match CRs towards a specific environment
    • each target tag consists of name and value which is a regexp matched against corresponding name tag given on the command line
    • if a Silence doesn't specify any targetTags it is assumed to match any environment and is synced
    • otherwise for a Silence to be synced, all tags defined in its targetTags must match all tags given on the sync command line

For example, to ensure raw CR, stored at /folder/cr.yaml, run:

silence-operator sync --tag installation=kind --tag provider=local --dir /folder
  • matchers field corresponds to the Alertmanager silence matchers each of which consists of:
    • name - name of tag on an alert to match
    • value - fixed string or expression to match against the value of the tag named by name above on an alert
    • isRegex - a boolean specifying whether to treat value as a regex (=~) or a fixed string (=)
    • isEqual - a boolean specifying whether to use equal signs (= or =~) or to negate the matcher (!= or !~)
