Licensing for Kubernetes Monitoring

Licensing for Kubernetes monitoring

 The main Kubernetes cluster is considered one basic monitor. For the other components, the licensing is done as follows: 

Component
Licensing
Nodes
1 monitor consumes one basic license
Pods
5 monitors consume one basic license
Containers
5 monitors consume one basic license
Services
5 monitors consume one basic license
DaemonSets
5 monitors consume one basic license
Jobs
5 monitors consume one basic license
Horizontal Pod Scaler (HPA)
5 monitors consume one basic license
Controllers
5 monitors consume one basic license
ReplicaSets
5 monitors consume one basic license
StatefulSets
5 monitors consume one basic license
Persistent Volume Claim (PVC)
5 monitors consume one basic license
Persistent Volumes (PV)
5 monitors consume one basic license
Endpoints and ConfigMaps

For example, consider a Kubernetes set up having 5 nodes, 200 pods, 51 deployments, 53 ReplicaSets, 40 DaemonSets, and 200 containers. This would consume a total of 116 basic monitors. The split-up will be like the following:
  1. The main Kubernetes cluster - one basic monitor
    1. 5 nodes - 5 basic monitors
    2. 200 pods - 40 basic monitors
    3. 51 deployments - 11 basic monitors
    4. 53 ReplicaSets - 11 basic monitors
    5. 40 DaemonSets - 8 basic monitors 
    6. 200 containers - 40 basic monitors
