EKS

Set up your EKS Cluster

Note: Skip this section if you already you have a target cluster set up.

If you don't have a cluster ready you can set one up based on the Getting Started with Amazon EKS guide. An easier approach we recommend is to set it up with eksctl by following these steps:

Prerequisites

Create the cluster

Create a cluster with managed node-pools using eksctl:

eksctl create cluster --managed

You can deploy clusters with alternate configurations or by using the AWS console. You can view our requirements to determine recommended node level compute requirements.

Deploying Pixie

Update kubeconfig to point to the right cluster:

aws eks update-kubeconfig --name <cluster-name>

Verify that you are point to the right cluster

kubectl get svc

After this, follow the quick-start guide to deploy Pixie
