Why do I need to configure the Kubernetes-Prometheus-Stack?

Kubernetes allows developers to deploy, manage, and scale containerized applications across a cluster of nodes, providing features such as load balancing, automatic scaling, self-healing, and rolling updates. The FusionReactor Kubernetes integration gives you full observability into the health and performance of your environment. With the data it provides, you can monitor the health of your entire Kubernetes cluster, check individual pods, or drill into specific services and applications.


  • Performance optimization

  • Proactive issue detection

  • Rapid troubleshooting and debugging

  • Capacity planning and scalability

  • Efficient resource utilization


Getting started


Prior to beginning, ensure you have the following:

  • Access to your cluster via kubectl and helm.

  • A valid FusionReactor Cloud account, and an API key for the account.

  • A valid FusionReactor Cloud user in your account, with access to FusionReactor Cloud.


API keys can be managed under FusionReactor Cloud > User Menu > Account > API Keys


Step 1: Download files

Download the following files from our GitHub repo.

  • fr-cloud-kps-values.yaml

  • fr-cloud-kps-authentication-secret.yaml

Step 2: Customize the two files for installation

  • fr-cloud-kps-values.yaml

Change CLUSTER_NAME to your Kubernetes cluster name.

  • fr-cloud-authentication-secret.yaml

Change PASSWORD to your FR Cloud API key.

Step 3: Create new namespace to hold & deploy stack

Run the following commands to create a new namespace to hold & deploy the stack

kubectl create namespace kube-prometheus-stack
helm repo add prometheus-community
helm repo update
kubectl apply -n kube-prometheus-stack -f fr-cloud-kps-authentication-secret.yaml
helm upgrade --install -n kube-prometheus-stack -f fr-cloud-kube-prom-stack-values.yaml kube-prometheus-stack prometheus-community/kube-prometheus-stack --version 48.3.1
