Kubernetes is an awesome container orchestration platform. One of the features it provides is the ability to configure Kubernetes cron jobs. The cron jobs will periodically create jobs (executions). Out of the box there is not so much monitoring available for the cron jobs.

I created a Kubernetes job monitor dashboard that makes it easy to see which jobs are running and if their latest status was “succeeded” or “failed”.

The Kubernetes job monitor is also mentioned in the official Kubernetes documentation https://kubernetes.io/docs/tasks/debug-application-cluster/resource-usage-monitoring/#kubernetes-job-monitor.
