Monitoring Guards

Set up monitoring of guards

Once you have JanusGuards defined, you’re ready to start guarding filesystem events. There are generic logfiles included in both apps.


Using the glog logging framework that most Kubernetes-related projects also leverage, you can locate logfiles in both janusd and januscontroller containers at /tmp/janusd.INFO and /tmp/januscontroller.INFO. The janusd logs will show actual fanotify events that were granted or denied access to as they happened, where januscontroller log will only include Kubernetes controller-related log messages such as receiving new guards, connecting the controller to daemons via gRPC, and pods being created, deleted, and updated that a guard cares about.
