A Helm master chart to install a k8s monitoring setup, based on prometheus-operator and grafana.


helm install skyscrapers/cluster-monitoring -f values.yaml


Installs the following components for a complete k8s cluster monitoring setup:


  • Kubernetes 1.9+

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

helm install --name my-release skyscrapers/cluster-monitoring

The command deploys the complete k8s monitoring setup on the cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

helm delete my-release

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


This charts only has configurable parameters for opsgenie-heartbeat-proxy, everything else is taken from upstream:

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

Parameter Description Default
defaultDashboards Whether to include the default Grafana dashboards (found in ./dashboards-default) true
extraDashboards Extra dashboard files to include (found in ./dashboards-extra) []
createMonitoringNamespace Whether to create an "application-monitoring" namespace where you can add additional PrometheusRules and/or ServiceMonitors. This namespace will have a prometheus label, which can be used with Prometheus' ruleNamespaceSelector and serviceMonitorNamespaceSelector false
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.image Image traumfewo/opsgenie-heartbeat-proxy
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.imageTag Image tag v0.0.2
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.imagePullPolicy Image pull policy IfNotPresent
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.port Port to run container on 8080
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.replicas Amount of replicas 3
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.imageTag Image tag v0.0.2
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.opsgenie_api_key Opsgenie API Key ""
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.heartbeat_name Opsgenie Heartbeat name ""
opsgenieHeartbeatProxy.resources Pod resource requests & limits CPU: 128m, Memory: 128Mi

Upstream configuration can be found here:

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

helm install --name my-release \
  --set defaultDashboards=false \

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml skyscrapers/cluster-monitoring

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml

Migrate from older versions to 1.0.0

With version 1.0.0 of this chart we move from using an old kube-prometheus version to the new prometheus-operator chart as dependency. This is a breaking change (with data loss) and an upgrade from previous versions is not possible. You need to remove everything before deploying the new version:

helm delete --purge prometheus-operator
helm delete --purge cluster-monitoring

# Remove the `kubelet` svc created by prometheus-operator
kubectl delete svc -n kube-system kubelet

# Remove CRDs or helm will fail
# WARNING: this will also remove all your Prometheuses, AlertManagers,
# ServiceMonitors and PrometheusRules created via the CRD!
# You will need to redeploy these after deploying the chart.
# Instead of removing the CRDs, you can also set the following value:
# `prometheus-operator.prometheusOperator.createCustomResource: false`
kubectl delete crd
kubectl delete crd
kubectl delete crd
kubectl delete crd

After the helm purge there might still be some leftover resources to delete. You can find these by running kubectl get all --all-namespaces -l release=<your helm release name> and delete those resources. Don't forget to also check your ConfigMaps for any leftovers.
