Bringing the power of eBPF tools to your Kubernetes web UI
10-09, 10:15–10:45 (US/Pacific), Main stage

We built Inspektor Gadget to enable Kubernetes operators to get insights on their clusters, simplifying running bcc tools and using the power of eBPF to build more advanced gadgets. We designed Headlamp to help operators visualize and control their clusters, and we made it extensible so that users could tailor it to their needs. We are now combining them to get a lot more power out of both, by enabling use-cases that are powered by Inspektor Gadget and delivered in a way that is easy to use.

This talk is for anyone who is looking for an easy way to use eBPF tools in their cluster, through a web UI that lowers the learning curve and improves the user experience.
