In Anodot, you can find our unique solution that helps with tracking Kubernetes costs and usage up to the pod level, understanding them better, and easily identifying wasted spend.
To unlock the full potential of your Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), follow the steps below:
Connecting your clusters to Anodot:
Ensure that the project that the clusters are associated with is connected in Anodot:
- Navigate to Account > Projects page. If the project status is connected move to the next step. If not, you can find guidance on how to connect them here.
- For each cluster, make sure that you enabled the "cloud Monitoring' feature on GCP:
Adding your GKE Labels:
For a more comprehensive view of your K8s clusters, provide additional metadata and labels. Follow GCP documentation to create a labeling table: https://cloud.google.com/kubernetes-engine/docs/how-to/cluster-usage-metering#create-dataset
Keep the following in mind:
- You can only export data to a BigQuery dataset that is in the same project as your cluster.
- Upon completing GCP instructions, send the following information to Anodot support:
- Big Query table name
- Project ID
- GKE dataset name
- If multiple tables are needed (for multiple projects), consider using another GCP account and initiating a separate onboarding process.
