Monitoring Operator - Share kubelet metrics to namespaces

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • In a multi-tenant environment it is not possible to scrape metrics per namespace using the OLM Operator
  • A first feature that would be already helpful would be the ability to have kube-state-metrics configured on a per namespace level by default. This would already expose a lot of metrics that the customer could use.
  • Would be possible to put some kind of proxy in front of the cluster level prometheus, and allow each namespace to scrape their metrics in a federated fashion.
  • This proxy has to be smart to only allow metrics for a given namespace.
