Chapter 6

Monitoring

Kubermatic uses Prometheus and its Alertmanager for monitoring and alerting. Dashboarding is done with Grafana.

Architecture

Out of the box Prometheus starts monitoring all Kubernetes components of seed and customer clusters.

Grafana

In a default Kubermatic installation we ship Grafana as readonly metrics dashboard. When working with Grafana please keep in mind, that ALL CHANGES done using the Grafana UI (like adding datasources, etc.) WILL NOT BE PERSISTED. Dashboards, graphs, datasources, etc. will be defined using the Helm chart.
