6.1. Starting Monitoring, Alerting, and Telemetry

To make sure CodeReady Containers can run on a typical laptop, some resource-heavy services get disabled by default. One of these is Prometheus and the related monitoring, alerting, and telemetry functionality. Telemetry functionality is responsible for listing your cluster in the Red Hat OpenShift Cluster Manager.



  1. List unmanaged Operators and note the numeric index for cluster-monitoring-operator:

    • On Linux or macOS:

      $ oc get clusterversion version -ojsonpath='{range .spec.overrides[*]}{.name}{"\n"}{end}' | nl -v 0
    • On Microsoft Windows using PowerShell:

      PS> oc get clusterversion version -ojsonpath='{range .spec.overrides[*]}{.name}{"\n"}{end}' | % {$nl++;"`t$($nl-1) `t $_"};$nl=0
  2. Start monitoring, alerting, and telemetry services using the identified numeric index:

    $ oc patch clusterversion/version --type='json' -p '[{"op":"remove", "path":"/spec/overrides/<unmanaged-operator-index>"}]' -oyaml
