Werk #11039: Kubernetes: new option to add a namespace prefix

Component Checks & Agents
Title Kubernetes: new option to add a namespace prefix
Date May 8, 2020
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 2.0.0i1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

The special agent for Kubernetes now supports an option to add the namespace of namespaced objects as a prefix to the hostname in Checkmk. This makes it possible to distinguish objects with the same name in different namespaces. A pod inside the namespace "prod" with the name "redis" would then e.g. be added with the hostname "prod_pod_redis". You don't need to activate this option if you don't use namespaces in your cluster.
