Windows Node Support
Kubecost can run on clusters with mixed Linux and Windows nodes. The Kubecost pods must run on a Linux node.
When using a Helm install, this can be done simply with:
helm install kubecost \
--repo https://kubecost.github.io/cost-analyzer/ cost-analyzer \
--namespace kubecost --create-namespace \
The cluster must have at least one Linux node for the Kubecost pods to run on:
Use a nodeSelector for all Kubecost deployments:
For DaemonSets, set the affinity to only allow scheduling on Windows nodes:
- key: kubernetes.io/os
- Collecting data about Windows nodes is supported by Kubecost as of v1.93.0.
- Accurate node and pod data exists by default, since they come from the Kubernetes API.
- Kubecost requires cAdvisor for pod utilization data to determine costs at the container level.
- Currently, for pods on Windows nodes: pods will be billed based on request size.
