Getting started after deploying Kubernetes Metrics Server

After you have downloaded your kube config file, and are able to successfully connect to your DigitalOcean Kubernetes cluster (see https://cloud.digitalocean.com/kubernetes/clusters/ if you haven’t connected to your cluster) follow the instructions below to start using the metrics-server.


The metrics-server provides cluster metrics, such as container CPU and memory usage via the Kubernetes Metrics API.

To view the metrics made available by metrics server, run the following command in a terminal shell:

kubectl top nodes

or for all Kubernetes Namespaces enter:

kubectl top pods --all-namespaces

As metrics server is running on your cluster you can also see metrics in the DigitalOcean Kubernetes Dashboard. To see your cluster metrics go to https://cloud.digitalocean.com/kubernetes/clusters → click on your cluster → click on “Insights” tab.
