Kubernetes event metricsetedit

This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but experimental features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

This is the event metricset of the Kubernetes module.


For a description of each field in the metricset, see the exported fields section.

Here is an example document generated by this metricset:
