Installation of Hubble


Install Cilium

Install Cilium using the Install instructions. To deploy Cilium 1.7.0-rc1 via Helm, download the chart as follows:

curl -LO
tar xzvf v1.7.0-rc1.tar.gz
cd cilium-1.7.0-rc1/install/kubernetes

To install Cilium 1.7.0-rc1, make sure to specify the image tag by setting global.tag=v1.7.0-rc1:

helm template cilium \
  --namespace kube-system \
  --set global.tag=v1.7.0-rc1 \
  > cilium.yaml
kubectl create -f cilium.yaml

If you need help to troubleshoot installation issues, ping us on the Cilium Slack.

Enable Datapath Aggregation

Hubble relies on on aggregation of events in the eBPF datapath of Cilium. Please enable datapath aggregation by setting the value of monitor-aggregation in the cilium-config ConfigMap to medium or higher:

monitor-aggregation: medium

This is the default setting for new installs of Cilium 1.6 or later.
