K8S Kube-proxy monitoring with Netdata

Kube-proxy is a network proxy that runs on each each node in your cluster, implementing part of the Kubernetes Service.

This module will monitor one or more kube-proxy instances, depending on your configuration.

Charts

It produces the following charts:

  • Sync Proxy Rules in events/s
  • Sync Proxy Rules Latency in observes/s
  • Sync Proxy Rules Latency Percentage in %
  • REST Client HTTP Requests By Status Code in requests/s
  • REST Client HTTP Requests By Method in requests/s
  • HTTP Requests Duration in microseconds

Configuration

Edit the go.d/k8s_kubeproxy.conf configuration file using edit-config from the your agent’s config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory
sudo ./edit-config go.d/k8s_kubeproxy.conf

Needs only url to kube-proxy metric-address. Here is an example for several instances:

jobs:
  - name: local
    url : http://127.0.0.1:10249/metrics

  - name: remote
    url : http://203.0.113.1:10249/metrics

For all available options please see module configuration file.

Check the module debug output. Run the following command as netdata user:

./go.d.plugin -d -m k8s_kubeproxy
