Kubernetes Input Plugin

This input plugin talks to the kubelet api using the /stats/summary endpoint to gather metrics about the running pods and containers for a single host. It is assumed that this plugin is running as part of a daemonset within a kubernetes installation. This means that telegraf is running on every node within the cluster. Therefore, you should configure this plugin to talk to its locally running kubelet.

To find the ip address of the host you are running on you can issue a command like the following:

$ curl -s $API_URL/api/v1/namespaces/$POD_NAMESPACE/pods/$HOSTNAME --header "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN" --insecure | jq -r '.status.hostIP'

In this case we used the downward API to pass in the $POD_NAMESPACE and $HOSTNAME is the hostname of the pod which is set by the kubernetes API.

Series Cardinality Warning

This plugin may produce a high number of series which, when not controlled for, will cause high load on your database. Use the following techniques to avoid cardinality issues:

Configuration

[[inputs.kubernetes]]
  ## URL for the kubelet
  url = "http://127.0.0.1:10255"

  ## Use bearer token for authorization. ('bearer_token' takes priority)
  # bearer_token = "/path/to/bearer/token"
  ## OR
  # bearer_token_string = "abc_123"

  ## Set response_timeout (default 5 seconds)
  # response_timeout = "5s"

  ## Optional TLS Config
  # tls_ca = /path/to/cafile
  # tls_cert = /path/to/certfile
  # tls_key = /path/to/keyfile
  ## Use TLS but skip chain & host verification
  # insecure_skip_verify = false

DaemonSet

For recommendations on running Telegraf as a DaemonSet see Monitoring Kubernetes Architecture or view the Helm charts.
