Does site24x7 support monitoring on Amazon EKS on Fargate?

Dear experts,

We host our kubenetes cluster in Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) using AWS Fargate. From the docs, www.site24x7.com/help/aws/eks-integration.html#setup, only Container Insights on Amazon EKS is required to be installed.
Does it also imply enabling Container Insights support in ADOT Collector for EKS Fargate works for site24x7 too?

The following list of pod metrics is sent to CloudWatch by the ADOT Collector for each of the workloads running on EKS Fargate. Other data points will still be sent to CloudWatch as raw CloudWatch logs but not in Metric format.

  • pod_cpu_utilization_over_pod_limit
  • pod_cpu_usage_total
  • pod_cpu_limit
  • pod_memory_utilization_over_pod_limit
  • pod_memory_working_set
  • pod_memory_limit
  • pod_network_rx_bytes
  • pod_network_tx_bytes

Each metric will be associated with the following three dimension sets and collected under the CloudWatch namespace named ContainerInsights.

  • ClusterName, LaunchType
  • ClusterName, Namespace, LaunchType
  • ClusterName, Namespace, PodName, LaunchType


  • Install ADOT for EKS Fargate docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudWatch/latest/monitoring/Container-Insights-EKS-otel.html#Container-Insights-EKS-otel-Fargate

Hi there!

Yes, Site24x7-Amazon EKS integration supports AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry (ADOT) on Amazon EC2 and AWS Fargate. The ADOT collector will setup Container Insights in Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) to collect the EKS metrics and sends them to CloudWatch. The metrics sent to CloudWatch will be collected and used by Site24x7 for monitoring. Once the EKS Service is enabled in the Services to be discovered set, Site24x7 fetches the EKS Clusters automatically for monitoring.
