Start monitoring your Kubernetes cluster with Prometheus and Grafana. This article will cover how to get those metrics using Prometheus and Grafana. This walkthrough also uses Pop!_OS 20.04, Helm 3, Minikube 1.14.2, and Kubernetes 1.19.
In my introductory article about chaos engineering, one of the main things I covered was the importance of getting the steady state of your working Kubernetes cluster. Before you can start causing chaos, you need to know what the cluster looks like in a steady state.
Install Minikube in whatever way makes sense for your environment. If you have enough resources, I recommend giving your virtual machine a bit more than the default memory and CPU power:
$ minikube config set memory 8192 ❗ These changes will take effect upon a minikube delete and then a minikube start $ minikube config set cpus 6 ❗ These changes will take effect upon a minikube delete and then a minikube start
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.

Monitoring YugabyteDB with Prometheus and Grafana in Kubernetes ... a Kubernetes cluster using either the Kubernetes prometheus-operator ...
In this blog I have deployed two monitoring tools namely Prometheus and Grafana on top of Kubernetes. The main issue solved is that when the pod gets deleted the data is also lost to resolve this I used the PVC feature of kubernetes to make data persistent.
Monitoring is crucial whether you are experimenting or using production-based cluster. There are multiple tool and stack to monitor kubernetes cluster Prometheus and Grafana top the chart.
