1. Deploy the ebpf-exporter helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the ebpf-exporter Helm chart on AWS EKS, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Set up an Amazon EKS cluster.
    2. Configure Kubernetes to interact with the EKS cluster.
    3. Install the ebpf-exporter Helm chart on the EKS cluster.

    Let's go through each step in detail:

    1. Setting up the EKS Cluster

    To create an EKS cluster, you'll use the eks.Cluster class from the Pulumi EKS package. You'll need to define the VPC and subnet IDs where you want the cluster and its nodes to run. You may also want to specify the desired Kubernetes version.

    2. Configuring Kubernetes Provider

    Once the EKS cluster is created, you can use its kubeconfig to set up the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. This provider allows you to interact with the cluster to manage Kubernetes resources, including deploying Helm charts.

    3. Installing the Helm Chart

    With your EKS cluster ready and Kubernetes provider configured, you can then use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart class to deploy the ebpf-exporter Helm chart.

    Let's start with the Pulumi program in TypeScript to deploy the EKS cluster and install the ebpf-exporter Helm chart:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws"; import * as awsx from "@pulumi/awsx"; import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("ebpfCluster", { // Specify the desired version for the Kubernetes master version: "1.21", // Specify the desired instance type for the EKS nodes instanceType: "t3.medium", // The number of worker nodes to use for the cluster desiredCapacity: 2, // The minimum number of worker nodes the cluster should use minSize: 1, // The maximum number of worker nodes the cluster should use maxSize: 3, // Deploy the cluster in the default VPC and subnets vpcId: awsx.ec2.Vpc.getDefault().id, publicSubnetIds: awsx.ec2.Subnet.getDefault().public.map(s => s.id), // Additional settings can be configured as needed. }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Set up the Pulumi Kubernetes provider using the kubeconfig from the EKS cluster const provider = new k8s.Provider("k8s", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig, }); // Deploy the ebpf-exporter Helm chart onto the EKS cluster const ebpfExporterChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ebpf-exporter", { chart: "ebpf-exporter", version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the desired chart version fetchOpts: { // Specify the repository that hosts the ebpf-exporter Helm chart repo: "https://<helm-chart-repository>", // Replace with the actual repository URL }, }, { provider: provider }); // Export the Helm chart resources export const helmChartResources = ebpfExporterChart.resources;

    This program will:

    • Create an EKS cluster with a default node group that meets ebpf-exporter requirements.
    • Set up a Pulumi Kubernetes provider to manage Kubernetes resources in the created EKS cluster.
    • Install the ebpf-exporter Helm chart into the EKS cluster using the Pulumi Kubernetes provider.

    Here are a few notes on the above program:

    • Replace <helm-chart-repository> with the actual Helm chart repository URL that contains the ebpf-exporter chart. You may also need to adjust the version according to the available chart versions.
    • The kubeconfig output can be used to interact with the cluster from your local machine using kubectl.
    • In the EKS cluster declaration, I've chosen some defaults. You should modify these accordingly based on your needs and preferences, like setting the proper instance type or EKS version.
    • The helmChartResources export can be used to obtain the deployed Helm chart's Kubernetes resources, which is especially useful for debugging.

    To apply this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the code in a file with a .ts extension.
    2. Run pulumi up from your command line in the same directory as your code.
    3. Follow the command line prompts to authenticate with AWS and apply the changes. This will create the EKS cluster and deploy the Helm chart.

    Remember, before running any Pulumi code, ensure your AWS credentials are configured correctly on your machine and that the latest versions of Pulumi CLI and required plugin are installed.
