New Relic adapter for scaling app using HPA with custom metrics

Hai,
I’am trying to install newrelic adapter to scale applications using Horizontal Pod Autoscaler with custom metrics.
I have newrelic cluster explorer set up for my cluster and its working fine.
when i installed a application the data is not showing up in newrelic and in the HPA description the target value is showing as unknown and has a error message
“HPA unable to fetch metrics from custom metrics api”
can you help me with this…

Hi Divyenth,
Please see this discussion which references an open source implementation of Kubernetes Custom Metrics API for New Relic - the project is https://github.com/kuperiu/k8s-newrelic-adapter. I believe this should be relevant for your use case.
