By default, RKE deploys Metrics Server to provide metrics on resources in your cluster.

RKE will deploy Metrics Server as a Deployment.

The image used for Metrics Server is under the system_images directive. For each Kubernetes version, there is a default image associated with the Metrics Server, but these can be overridden by changing the image tag in system_images.

Disabling the Metrics Server

Available as of v0.2.0

You can disable the default controller by specifying none to the monitoring provider directive in the cluster configuration.

monitoring:
    provider: none
