Rely on cnquery to explore and analyze your entire Kubernetes stack. You can query any type of Kubernetes deployment, whether it's local or in the cloud. cnquery lets you gather data about all aspects of your container infrastructure and their workloads.

cnquery provides the answers you need about every Kubernetes configuration. For a list of Kubernetes resources you can query, read Mondoo Kubernetes (K8s) Resource Pack Reference and Mondoo Core Resource Pack Reference.
