Access Prometheus Dashboard

All services are defined as ClusterIP in default configuration. To access, we are going to use port-forward. However we can edit the service or edit the value upon deployment to use NodePort or Ingress.

$ kubectl port-forward -n prom prometheus-prom-kube-prometheus-stack-prometheus-0 9090
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Access Grafana Dashboard

  • default user/password is admin/prom-operator
$ kubectl port-forward -n prom prom-grafana-6c578f9954-rjdmk 3000
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Uninstall

$ helm uninstall prom -n prom

Remove CRDs
$ kubectl delete crd alertmanagerconfigs.monitoring.coreos.com
$ kubectl delete crd alertmanagers.monitoring.coreos.com
$ kubectl delete crd podmonitors.monitoring.coreos.com
$ kubectl delete crd probes.monitoring.coreos.com
$ kubectl delete crd prometheuses.monitoring.coreos.com
