Kubernetes module

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 module fetches metrics from Kubernetes kubelet agent and kube-state-metrics service.

All metricsets with the state_ prefix require hosts field pointing to kube-stat-metrics service within the cluster, while the rest should be pointed to kubelet service. Check the example configuration on how to do it.

Example configuration

The Kubernetes module supports the standard configuration options that are described in Specify which modules to run. Here is an example configuration:

metricbeat.modules:
# Node metrics, from kubelet:
- module: kubernetes
  metricsets:
    - node
    - system
    - pod
    - container
    - volume
  period: 10s
  hosts: ["localhost:10255"]

# State metrics from kube-state-metrics service:
- module: kubernetes
  enabled: false
  metricsets:
    - state_node
    - state_deployment
    - state_replicaset
    - state_pod
    - state_container
  period: 10s
  hosts: ["kube-state-metrics:8080"]

# Kubernetes events
- module: kubernetes
  enabled: false
  metricsets:
    - event
