App Mesh Prometheus

App Mesh Prometheus Helm chart for Kubernetes


  • Kubernetes >= 1.13

Installing the Chart

Add the EKS repository to Helm:

helm repo add eks

Install App Mesh Prometheus:

helm upgrade -i appmesh-prometheus eks/appmesh-prometheus \
--namespace appmesh-system

For Prometheus persistent storage you can create a PersistentVolumeClaim and use --set persistentVolumeClaim.claimName=<PVC-CLAIM-NAME>.

cat <<EOF | kubectl apply -f -
apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolumeClaim
  name: prometheus
  namespace: appmesh-system
  labels: appmesh-prometheus
  storageClassName: gp2
    - ReadWriteOnce
      storage: 100Gi
helm upgrade -i appmesh-prometheus eks/appmesh-prometheus \
--namespace appmesh-system \
--set retention=12h \
--set persistentVolumeClaim.claimName=prometheus

The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the appmesh-prometheus deployment:

helm delete --purge appmesh-prometheus

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following tables lists the configurable parameters of the chart and their default values.
