Kubernetes pod metricset

This functionality is in beta and is subject to change. The design and code is less mature than official GA features and is being provided as-is with no warranties. Beta features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

This is the pod metricset of the Kubernetes module.


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