OneIQ Pulse supports telemetry for Kubernetes services, pods, clusters, nodes and persistent volumes.


  • Kubernetes cluster version 1.19.11, or higher.

  • Connectivity to the following public repositories:

  • Storage class allowing the provisioning of a persistent volume for the OneIQ Pulse connector.

  • Outbound Internet connectivity via port 443 (SSL) to OneIQ.

Discovering a Kubernetes cluster

  1. Login to the OneIQ Portal

  2. Click IT Environments in the left navigation menu

  3. Select an IT Environment, go to the Connectors tab and select Kubernetes

  4. Specify the name of the OneIQ Pulse connector.

  5. In the Download manifest section, define a namespace and optionally add tolerations, separated by spaces.

  6. Click Download to generate a .1iq Kubernetes manifest, customized for the selected IT environment. It must be deployed within 24 hours before it expires.

  7. Run the following command in the target Kubernetes cluster:

    kubectl apply -f <name of the manifest>.1iq

  8. To check the status of the OneIQ Pulse connector in the Kubernetes cluster, run the following command:

    kubectl get pods -n oneiq

    Repeat the steps above steps for each Kubernetes cluster.


If you export the MyKubernetesCluster (My IT environment).1iq manifest and run the following command:

kubectl apply -f "MyKubernetesCluster (My IT environment).1iq"

The output should be:

kubectl apply -f "MyKubernetesCluster (My IT environment).1iq"
namespace/oneiq created
serviceaccount/oneiq-pulse-collector created created created created created
persistentvolumeclaim/oneiq-pulse-pv created
deployment.apps/oneiq-pulse-collector created

Here is sample output if you check the status of the OneIQ Pulse connector:

NAME                                   READY  STATUS  RESTARTS   AGE
oneiq-pulse-collector-d9fb7f9d7-mrvqm 1/1 Running 0 8m29s
