Feature Idea: Exporting Control Plane Metrics from EKS

Hi Techs,

I am looking for creating Observability for EKS control plane. Hence was using NRI bundle to export the metrics from EKS into New Relic and create custom dashboards in NR. However, since control plane metrics is not coming into NR, I am not able to complete my setup. Hence any one of you could suggest any way to get EKS control plane metrics into NR (I am not taking about control plane logs). Or have any one worked on a any SLO/SLI metrics around EKS in NR?

Hi @vijesh_nair02, welcome to the Explorers Hub and apologies for the delayed response.

There is currently no way to pull control metrics into New Relic but I have gone ahead and submitted a feature idea for this capability. Our product development team will review this and hopefully implement it in the future. If so, I will update this thread.


Is there any update on this? If I send the control plane logs to NR via log api, will it populate the Control Plane dashboard automatically? Or do I need to do some custom parsing?

Hi @jan.quijano1!

I have checked and it seems that this feature idea will not be implemented in the foreseeable future. At this moment in time, there is no work around but hopefully someone on the community will be able to offer some guidance.
