Install DKP Insights - Essential License

Install DKP Insights in single-cluster environments with an Essential License.


  • You have installed DKP.

  • You have an active license key for DKP Insights.

  • Decide whether you want to receive alerts of a single cluster (DKP Essential license), or of several clusters (DKP Enterprise license).

  • Ensure you have Rook Ceph, Rook Ceph Cluster, and Kube Prometheus Stack deployed on the clusters where you want to install DKP Insights.

The Management/Essential cluster comes with Rook Ceph, Rook Ceph Cluster and Kube Prometheus Stack by default. Deploy Rook Ceph and Rook Ceph Cluster on any Managed or Attached clusters using the UI or CLI.

Install DKP Insights

Before your Start

DKP Insights consists of two applications:

  • The Insights Management application or dkp-insights-management.

  • The Insights Engine application or dkp-insights.

The Insights Management application is enabled in the Essential cluster by default. You must enable the Insights Engine application.

You can enable DKP Insights using the UI or the CLI. In both cases, the application will not start functioning until you apply a license key.

Enable DKP Insights using the CLI:

  1. Obtain the dkp-insights version you want to install from the applications table in the latest Release Notes.

  2. Enable the Insights Engine or dkp-insights on the clusters you want to monitor. You have two options:

    1. You can enable DKP Insights using the UI.

    2. You can enable DKP Insights using the CLI by creating an AppDeployment in the kommander namespace (the workspace name is kommander-workspace). Ensure you specify the correct application version:

      dkp create appdeployment dkp-insights --app dkp-insights-0.5.0 --workspace kommander-workspace
  3. Apply a valid license key to allow DKP Insights to start analyzing your environment.

DKP Insights now displays alerts for the Essential cluster.
