Kubernetes Metrics Server gives you visibility into your cluster's CPU and memory usage.

Software Included

Getting started after deploying Kubernetes Metrics Server

After you've successfully installed metrics-server onto your cluster, you'll be able to confirm that its running by executing the following command in your terminal (it may take a moment for the data to be gathered):

kubectl top nodes

To view pod resource usage, run:

kubectl top pods --all-namespaces


To update your installation of metrics-server

helm repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami && helm repo update
helm upgrade metrics-server bitnami/metrics-server --namespace kube-system


To delete your installation of metrics-server:

helm uninstall metrics-server --namespace kube-system

API Creation

In addition to creating Kubernetes Metrics Server via the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API.

As an example, to create a 3 node DigitalOcean Kubernetes cluster made up of Basic Droplets in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You’ll need to either save your API access token to an environment variable or substitute it into the command below.

  curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
      -H "Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'" -d \
      '{"name": "choose-a-name","region": "sfo2","version": "1.17.5-do.0","node_pools": [{"size": "s-1vcpu-2gb","count": 3,"name": "choose-a-name"}]}' \
