Although the Kubernetes Management Operator on managed clusters with the Controller provides basic integrated monitoring and visibility capabilities, organizations may have standardized on best of breed offerings such as New Relic for logging and monitoring of their Kubernetes clusters.
This recipe describes how customers can standardize the configuration, deployment and lifecycle management of New Relic Kubernetes addons across their fleet of clusters. The New Relic Kubernetes Addon needs to be deployed on every Kubernetes cluster so that it can aggregate cluster and applications metrics, events and logs. These are then sent to New Relic's service for centralized monitoring and visibility.
