Get started with Kubernetes

The New Relic Kubernetes integration gives you full observability into the health and performance of your environment by leveraging the New Relic infrastructure agent. This agent collects metrics from your cluster alongside various other New Relic integrations such as the Kubernetes events integration, the Prometheus Agent, and the New Relic log plugin.

If you haven't already, create your free New Relic account below to start monitoring your data today.

You have these options to install the Kubernetes integration:

As a Kubernetes user, you might consider Auto-telemetry with Pixie for deeper insights into your Kubernetes clusters and workloads. No language agents required.


If your New Relic account is in the EU region, access the guided install from one.eu.newrelic.com.

Kubernetes guided install

Our guided install helps you with many types of installations: servers, virtual machines, and unprivileged environments. It can also help you with installations in managed services or platforms.


Make sure you are using the supported Kubernetes versions. Please check our compatibility and requirements page.

Use guided install

We encourage you to use our guided install for servers, VMs, and unprivileged environments. The guided install can provide you either a Helm command with the required values filled, or a plain manifest if you don't want to use Helm. It also offers control over which features are enabled and which data is collected. If you are installing our integration on a managed cloud, please take a look at these preliminary notes before proceeding.

Before you start the guided install, make sure you have a New Relic account. It's free and no credit card is required.

If your New Relic account is in the EU region, choose the EU install option.

Get an account

If custom manifests have been used instead of Helm, you will need to first remove the old installation using kubectl delete -f previous-manifest-file.yml, and then proceed through the guided installer again. This will generate an updated set of manifests that can be deployed using kubectl apply -f manifest-file.yml.
