LogicMonitor's Kubernetes Monitoring Overview

Last updated on 01 June, 2023

LogicMonitor’s Kubernetes Monitoring Integration enables comprehensive monitoring for Kubernetes Clusters and the containerized applications running within.


LogicMonitor officially supports the most recent four versions of Kubernetes at any given time and aims to offer support for new versions within 60 days of the official release. In addition, LogicMonitor officially supports running LM Container Kubernetes Monitoring on AWS Bottlerocket OS: https://aws.amazon.com/bottlerocket/.

LogicMonitor’s Kubernetes version support policy aligns with the policies of major cloud providers’ Kubernetes services: EKS (AWS)AKS (Azure)GKE (GCP), and OpenShift (RedHat). We additionally adhere to the Kubernetes community’s support for different Kubernetes versions. This results in us offering support for all the Kubernetes versions that are backed by these four cloud services and the community. The following current calendar for LM Container support for upstream Kubernetes releases is updated regularly to reflect the ongoing support from these providers and the Kubernetes community.

The following table displays the supported Kubernetes and Helm versions with the compatible LM Container Chart, Argus, and Collectorset-Controller versions.

LM Container Chart

Argus and Collectorset-Controller

Kubernetes VersionHelm

1.253v6, v7v2, v3
1.243v6, v7v2, v3
1.233v6, v7v2, v3

Note: Referencing the image tag by its major version number (such as v3) also matches the versions with incremented minor and bug fix version numbers while also allowing you to specify an exact version. In the earlier table, versions are referenced according to the major version number, to view all the available image tags, see DockerHub.


The integration relies on two lightweight applications that each run in your cluster as a pod:

  • An application, Argus, running in the cluster for discovery. Argus uses LogicMonitor’s API to add Nodes, Pods, and Services into monitoring.
  • A Collectorset-Controller that manages one or more Dockerized LogicMonitor Collectors for data collection. Once Kubernetes Cluster resources are added to LogicMonitor, data collection starts automatically. Data is collected for Nodes, Pods, Containers, and Services via the Kubernetes API. Additionally, standard containerized applications (e.g. Redis, MySQL, etc.) will be automatically detected and monitored.

Note: LogicMonitor’s Kubernetes monitoring integration is an add-on feature called LM Container. You may need to reach out to your Customer Success Manager (CSM) to get started.
