Make your own Prometheus + Grafana in kubernetes cluster and start monitoring it in some minutes😌

Add repository of stable charts

Helm3 has not default repository.

helm repo add stable

Install prometheus-operator

helm install my-prometheus-operator stable/prometheus-operator

Show pods

kubectl --namespace default get pods -l "release=my-prometheus-operator"

Show Grafana UI

kubectl port-forward $(kubectl get pods --selector=app=grafana --output=jsonpath="{}") 3000

Open it http://localhost:3000/

cause I'm still getting those errors, and the installation does not work properly after.

Simple and easy but would be worth to mention default credentials for Grafana: login/pass: admin/prom-operator
