EKS Dashboard


Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a managed Kubernetes service that automates certain aspects of deployment and maintenance for any standard Kubernetes environment. Whether you are migrating an existing Kubernetes application to Amazon EKS, or are deploying a new cluster on Amazon EKS on AWS Outposts, Datadog helps you monitor your EKS environments in real time.


Because Datadog already integrates with Kubernetes and AWS, it is ready-made to monitor EKS. If you’re running the Agent in a Kubernetes cluster and plan to migrate to EKS, you can continue monitoring your cluster with Datadog.

Additionally, Amazon EKS Managed Node Groups and Amazon EKS on AWS Outposts are supported.

EKS Anywhere

See the Amazon EKS Anywhere integration for setup instructions.

Metric collection

Monitoring EKS requires that you set up one of the following Datadog integrations along with integrations for any other AWS services you’re running with EKS, such as ELB.

Log collection

Available for Agent versions >6.0

The setup is exactly the same as for Kubernetes. To start collecting logs from all your containers, use your Datadog Agent environment variables.

Take also advantage of DaemonSets to automatically deploy the Datadog Agent on all your nodes.

Follow the container log collection steps to learn more about those environment variables and discover more advanced setup options.
