Metrics Server

Install/upgrade/uninstall Metrics Server

If you have not already done so, make sure your cluster meets the package prerequisites. Be sure to refer to the troubleshooting guide in the event of a problem.


  1. Generate the package configuration

    eksctl anywhere generate package metrics-server --cluster <cluster-name> > metrics-server.yaml
  2. Add the desired configuration to metrics-server.yaml

    Please see complete configuration options for all configuration options and their default values.

    Example package file configuring a cluster autoscaler package to run on a management cluster.

    kind: Package
      name: metrics-server
      namespace: eksa-packages-<cluster-name>
      packageName: metrics-server
      targetNamespace: <namespace-to-install-component>
      config: |-
          - "--kubelet-insecure-tls"    
  3. Install Metrics Server

    eksctl anywhere create packages -f metrics-server.yaml
  4. Validate the installation

    eksctl anywhere get packages --cluster <cluster-name>

    Example command output

To update package configuration, update metrics-server.yaml file, and run the following command:

eksctl anywhere apply package -f metrics-server.yaml


Metrics Server will automatically be upgraded when a new bundle is activated.


To uninstall Metrics Server, simply delete the package

eksctl anywhere delete package --cluster <cluster-name> metrics-server
