Configure the Kubernetes adapter to monitor Guest Clusters created using vSphere with Tanzu. You have to create one Kubernetes adapter for each Guest Cluster that you want to monitor.


  • Verify that you have installed VMware vRealize® Operations™ Management Pack for Kubernetes.

  • Verify that the control plane of the Management Cluster is accessible and resolvable.
  • Select either the cAdvisor or Prometheus monitoring option.
    • If you want to use Prometheus, ensure you have the server running and the endpoint is accessible with the credentials.
  • Note:
    • You can create user-defined custom roles but it should have the read-only access to all the resources in the cluster and the Kubernetes API.

    • Only a few performance metrics are collected using cAdvisor collector service for certain container runtimes.
