AWS's New EKS Upgrade Insights

AWS is introducing its new EKS upgrade insights](https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/containers/accelerate-the-testing-and-verification-of-amazon-eks-upgrades-with-upgrade-insights/).

Upgrade insights scans cluster’s audit logs for events related to APIs that have been deprecated. These events include information about who initiated it (i.e., the caller) and the Kubernetes resource(s) that it was initiated against. Upgrade Insights presents this information to you in concise and easily consumable way so you can identify and remediate the appropriate resources before executing the upgrade.

Here’s what it looks like:
