Pivotal Container Service

Supported OS Linux

Overview

This integration monitors Pivotal Container Service clusters.

Setup

Since Datadog already integrates with Kubernetes, it is ready-made to monitor Pivotal Kubernetes Service (PKS). You can use the Datadog Cluster Monitoring tile along with this integration to monitor your cluster.

Install the Datadog Agent on each non-worker VM in your PKS environment. In environments without Pivotal Application Service (PAS) installed, select the Resource Config section of the tile and set instances of the datadog-firehose-nozzle to 0.

Metric collection

Monitoring PKS requires that you set up the Datadog integration for Kubernetes.

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.

You can also take 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.
