Configure Kubernetes Monitoring

Use the Kubernetes Monitoring interface to set up monitoring of your Kubernetes cluster and to install preconfigured dashboards and alerts.

Select a Kubernetes Monitoring approach from the following list to learn more.


  • You must have the Admin role to install dashboards and alerts.
  • If you don’t want to use the preconfigured Agent manifests, you can manually deploy and scrape kube-state-metrics. However, if you don’t use Grafana Agent, you cannot monitor events.

Reinstall or upgrade Kubernetes Monitoring

Grafana Agent, dashboards, alerting rules, recording rules, kube-state-metrics, and Kubernetes manifests are updated regularly. You must update these components manually to take advantage of any updates. See how to update Kubernetes Monitoring components.
