Trouble monitoring nginx-ingress with prometheus
Pardon my ignorance as I’m new to Kubernetes. I’m trying to monitor my nginx-ingress using prometheus.
I initially installed the ingress using this tutorial which has you install the helm
Then I installed the Kubernetes Monitoring Stack
Next I discovered you needed to enable metrics on the ingress-controller to expose them to prometheus. I used
helm upgrade to set
controller.metrics.enabled on the ingress. This had the effect of creating a new service
nginx-ingress-controller-metrics but still no stats in prometheus.
Finally, I found this issue which said you needed to create a prometheus job to scape the ingress metrics. Unfortunately, it didnt say how to add the job.
Since the monitoring stack uses
promethius-operator I ended up following this method to add the job (i think). Following these instructions I created a
secret of the job as outlined in the stack overflow answer, added that secret to the
promethius-operator namespace, then referenced it in
That’s where I’m at now and still no luck seeing the ingress metrics. Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
