Send Kubernetes Data with Telemetry Collector


Telemetry Collector is currently available in all regions except for Japan. If you're located in this region, you can use’s integrations hub to send your data.

To start sending your Kubernetes data through the Telemetry Collector, you'll need the following:

  • Admin privileges in your account
  • Outgoing traffic to destination ports 8053 and 8071 allowed

If you're unsure whether traffic is allowed to these ports, continue the process, and will notify you if access is restricted.

Navigate to the Integration hub and choose one of the Kubernetes integrations available under the Quick Setup section.
