Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to all metrics for EKS, which is a managed Kubernetes service.
You can validate that metrics are reporting to Cloud Observability on the Metrics details page in Project settings.
Looking to ingest detailed AKS metrics related to pods, nodes, and workloads not present in AWS CloudWatch metrics? See the Kubernetes Quick Start for gathering metrics directly from Kubernetes components using the OpenTelemetry Operator for Kubernetes.
The following table shows the EKS metrics ingested by Cloud Observability.
|aws.aws-eks.cluster_failed_node_count||count||The The count of failed worker nodes in the cluster.|
|aws.aws-eks.cluster_node_count||count||The total worker nodes in the cluster.|
|aws.aws-eks.namespace_number_of_running_pods||count||The number of pods running per namespace.|
|aws.aws-eks.node_cpu_limit||count||The maximum CPU units assignable to nodes in this cluster.|
|aws.aws-eks.node_cpu_reserved_capacity||percent||The proportion of CPU units reserved for node components like kube-proxy, kubelet, and Docker.|
|aws.aws-eks.node_cpu_usage_total||count||The number of CPU units presently used in the cluster.|
|aws.aws-eks.node_cpu_utilization||percent||The proportion of CPU units used by all nodes in the cluster.|
