New Relic integration for Kubernetes
New Relic's Kubernetes integration gives you full observability into the health and performance of your environment, no matter whether you run Kubernetes on-premises or in the cloud. It gives you visibility about Kubernetes namespaces, deployments, replica sets, nodes, pods, and containers. Metrics are collected from different sources:
- kube-state-metrics service provides information about state of Kubernetes objects like namespace, replicaset, deployments and pods (when they are not in running state)
/stats/summarykubelet endpoint gives information about network, errors, memory and CPU usage
/podskubelet endpoint provides information about state of running pods and containers
/metrics/cadvisorcAdvisor endpoint provides missing data that is not included in the previous sources.
/metricsfrom control plane components:
Check out our documentation in order to find out more how to install and configure the integration, learn what metrics are captured and how to query them.

Run local development environment
We use Minikube and Tilt to spawn a local environment that it will reload after any changes inside the charts or the integration code.
Make sure you have these tools or install them:
values-local.yaml file from the
values-local.yaml.sample using a valid license key and your cluster name.
Start the local environment:
Notice that local images are build and pushed to docker running inside the minikube cluster since we are running
eval $(minikube docker-env) before launching Tilt.
Running OpenShift locally using CodeReady Containers
- See OpenShift.md for more details regarding running locally OpenShift environments.
Should you need assistance with New Relic products, you are in good hands with several support diagnostic tools and support channels.
