Start Installation#

Run the Admin Console installer and login on your browser at localhost:8800 via the provided port forwarding tunnel:

To see the progress of the deployment, monitor the deployment status with kubectl CLI:

kubectl get deployment,statefulset,pod -n <yournamespace>

If anything is showing Pending, it is likely you need to add more/bigger nodes to your cluster.

Customize Installation#

Configure graphs on Admin Console by clicking on the Configure graphs button and providing your Prometheus endpoint (e.g. http://kube-prometheus-stack-prometheus.monitoring.svc.cluster.local:9090).
