DETEcting Kubernetes known issues

detek is a extensible problem-detecting tool for reliable Kubernetes cluster operations and rapid problem detections. It is designed to analyze in-cluster issues AND non-Kubernetes, but cluster-related services such as Openstack, Vault, Trivy, SSH, or whatever detek can access.

However, as a Kubernetes exists almost everywhere with various environments and unique operational policies, only “general” features remain here. If you need some new “Detector” or “Collector” clone this repository and write some code. If you think what you wrote is a “general” case, a contribution is welcomed!

So what does this tool do for me?
