AWS EKS Metrics

Ship AWS-EKS metrics using VictoriaMetrics vmagent

Vmagent is a tiny but mighty agent which helps you collect metrics from various sources and store them in VictoriaMetrics

Step 1 - Aws cli installCopy

Firstly Make sure you have the aws cli, eksctl & kubectl installed on local machine using the following guide

Also make sure you have set up aws configure with your AWS credentials.

To do this run run the following command in your aws terminal.

aws configure

When you type this command, the AWS CLI prompts you for four pieces of information: access key, secret access key, AWS Region, and output format. This information is stored in a profile named default. This profile is used when you run commands, unless you specify another one.

Step 2 - Connecting to the clusterCopy

Update your config by running the following command. Replace <enter_region> and <enter_name> with your AWS cluster region and name.

aws eks --region <enter_region> update-kubeconfig --name <enter_name>

Check you can connect to your cluster by running the following command:

kubectl get svc

Step 4 - Add VictoriaMetrics Helm ChartCopy

Run the following to add the Victoria Metrics Helm chart.

helm repo add vm https://victoriametrics.github.io/helm-charts/

Step 5 - Export default configuration yamlCopy

Export the default configuration to a yaml file so that we can make an edit.

helm show values vm/victoria-metrics-agent >> vmagent-kubernetes.yml

Step 6 - Add remoteWriteUrlsCopy

Open the exported configuration in a text editor to add in the remoteWriteUrls.

You will need to edit Line 65 of the vmagent-kubernetes.yml

From:

# WARN: need to specify at least one remote write url or one multi tenant url
remoteWriteUrls: []
# remoteWriteUrls:
#   - http://vm-insert:8480/insert/0/prometheus
#   - http://prometheus:8480/insert/0/prometheus

To:

# WARN: need to specify at least one remote write url or one multi tenant url
remoteWriteUrls: ["https://user:[email protected]:port/api/v1/write"]
# remoteWriteUrls:
#   - http://vm-insert:8480/insert/0/prometheus
#   - http://prometheus:8480/insert/0/prometheus

Step 7 - Install Helm chartCopy

You are now ready to install the helm chart.

helm --namespace=victoriametrics install vmagent vm/victoria-metrics-agent --create-namespace -f vmagent-kubernetes.yml
