Question

kubectl top node|pod

It looks like heapster is not enabled on the cluster? Is this a planned feature?

kubectl top node
Error from server (NotFound): the server could not find the requested resource (get services http:heapster:)

I’ve used the same on other cloud providers (AKS, IKS) and it seems to be enabled…

You can easily install metrics server to your cluster via marketplace:

https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/kubernetes-metrics-server

  • Install metrics server chart

  • Update the command metrics server deployment and add the following two options to the pod command :

      - --kubelet-insecure-tls
      - --kubelet-preferred-address-types=InternalIP
    

Command will be look like this :

   command:
    - /metrics-server
    - --kubelet-insecure-tls
    - --kubelet-preferred-address-types=InternalIP

Wait two or three minutes, then the “top” command should work.

You have to deploy heapster in your cluster to collect metrics ;) by default its not activated on digitalocean k8s-cluster.

There is a helm chart for heapster: https://github.com/helm/charts/tree/master/stable/heapster
