Multi-Cluster Diagnostics

This feature is currently in beta. It is enabled by default.

Multi-Cluster Diagnostics offers a single view into the health of all the clusters you currently monitor with Kubecost.

Health checks include, but are not limited to:

  1. Whether Kubecost is correctly emitting metrics

  2. Whether Kubecost is being scraped by Prometheus

  3. Whether Prometheus has scraped the required metrics

  4. Whether Kubecost's ETL files are healthy

Configuration

# This is an abridged example. Full example in link below.
diagnostics:
  enabled: true
  primary:
    enabled: true  # Only enable this on your primary Kubecost cluster

# Ensure you have configured a unique CLUSTER_ID.
prometheus:
  server:
    global:
      external_labels:
        cluster_id: YOUR_CLUSTER_ID
kubecostProductConfigs:
  clusterName: YOUR_CLUSTER_ID

# Ensure you have configured a storage config secret.
kubecostModel:
  federatedStorageConfigSecret: federated-store

Additional configuration options can found in the values.yaml under diagnostics:.

Architecture

The Multi-Cluster Diagnostics feature is a process run within the kubecost-cost-analyzer deployment. It has the option to be run as an independent deployment for higher availability via .Values.diagnostics.deployment.enabled.

When run in each Kubecost deployment, it monitors the health of Kubecost and sends that health data to the central object store at the /diagnostics filepath. The below diagram depicts these interactions. This diagram is specific to the requests required for diagnostics only. For additional diagrams, see our multi-cluster guide.

API usage

The diagnostics API can be accessed on the primary via /model/diagnostics/multicluster?window=1d.

The window query parameter is required, which will return all diagnostics within the specified time window.

The Multi-cluster Diagnostics API provides a single view into the health of all the clusters you currently monitor with Kubecost.
