Do I need kube-profefe?

Kube Profefe is the official way to do continuous profiling on Kubernetes with Profefe. If you are running profefe in your kubernetes cluster it is an easy way to do collection without having to hack bash scripts or things like that.

How to scale the profile gathering

If you can’t run only one kprofefe for all the namespaces because you have too many pods you can deploy more kprofefe cronjob partitioning them per namespace or via label selector.
