aks/logs for reporting performance at namespace level

Hi All,

I would to extract a report for the AKS performance for last 7days. I believe the easiest way to do this would be using KQL query in the log analytics.

I tried to capture this manually from the portal but it becomes impossible because the page loads very slow as we have high data and number of workloads.



I did a query in log analytics on container CPU and Container Memory but could not find all the data. Could you please guide or help with custom query to retrieve/extract the information below ?

    Hi @Niren Adhikary (NAD) ,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to answer your question. There isn't any predefined custom query for the requirement you have here, However, based on the counters you specified, "Perf" table from Azure Monitor Logs table reference for Kubernetes helps here.

    It's often useful to build queries that start with an example or two and then modify them to fit your requirements. To help build more advanced queries, you can experiment with the following sample queries.

    You can use the below two queries

    | where ObjectName == "K8SContainer" and CounterName == "cpuUsageNanoCores"
    | summarize AvgCPUUsageNanoCores = avg(CounterValue) by bin(TimeGenerated, 30m), InstanceName

    | where ObjectName == "K8SContainer" and CounterName == "memoryRssBytes"
    | summarize AvgUsedRssMemoryBytes = avg(CounterValue) by bin(TimeGenerated, 30m), InstanceName

    Reference: Get started with log queries in Azure Monitor

    Hope this helps.
