The Prometheus agent provides the `kube-state-metrics` as a possible data source. This in turn would enable the following checks.
However, these checks are no longer actively maintained, since they have been superseded by their counterparts in the Kubernetes agent. Moreover, the `kube-state-metrics` target
- does not support new versions of kube-state-metrics (v2.0.0-alpha / 2020-09-16 or newer),
- does not provide the information required to fully support monitoring and
- is stricly inferior to monitoring via the Kubernetes agent.
If you are affected by this change, you need to setup your monitoring as per these instructions: https://docs.checkmk.com/latest/en/monitoring_kubernetes.html
