1. Deploy the rds-exporter helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the rds-exporter Helm chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, you will need to write a program that does the following:

    1. Sets up a Kubernetes provider to interact with your cluster.
    2. Defines a Helm Chart resource from the rds-exporter Helm repository which you wish to deploy to the Kubernetes cluster.
    3. Specifies any necessary configurations for the Helm chart, such as chart version, values to override defaults, etc.

    Below is a Pulumi TypeScript program that accomplishes this. Make sure you have Pulumi installed and configured with the appropriate Kubernetes context to which you want to deploy.

    Firstly, we will import the required Pulumi and Kubernetes packages. Then, we will create a new Helm chart resource, providing it with the necessary information about the rds-exporter chart.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define a Helm chart resource that deploys `rds-exporter`. const rdsExporterChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("rds-exporter", { // Replace with the repository containing the `rds-exporter` chart. For example: repo: "stable", chart: "rds-exporter", // Specify the version of the chart you wish to deploy. version: "x.y.z", // If necessary, you can provide custom values.yaml settings. // values are different configurations that you can set for this chart. This is an object with values to override. values: { // Insert any configuration overrides here. // For example, you may need to specify the database connection details, service type, or resource requests/limits. // The specifics will be based on your particular use-case and the `rds-exporter` helm chart you are using. }, // Optionally, you can specify the namespace to deploy into. namespace: "default", }); // Export any outputs you need, such as the Helm release status or specific Kubernetes resources. export const rdsExporterStatus = rdsExporterChart.status;

    This program defines a single Helm chart resource for deploying the rds-exporter. Here's a breakdown of what each part does:

    • repo: The Helm repository from where the chart is sourced. Replace "stable" with the actual name of the repository containing the rds-exporter chart.
    • chart: The name of the chart in the repository, in this case, rds-exporter.
    • version: The specific version of the Helm chart you want to deploy. Replace "x.y.z" with the proper version number.
    • values: This is where you specify configuration options for the chart. Each chart has a set of configurable values that are usually documented in the chart's repository or included as a values.yaml file within the chart. You would need to set the specifics according to the rds-exporter chart's documentation.
    • namespace: The namespace in Kubernetes where you want the chart to be deployed. Defaults to 'default', but you can change it if needed.
    • The export line at the bottom allows you to easily retrieve the status of your Helm release programmatically through Pulumi's stack outputs.

    To use this program, you would replace the placeholders and options with the specific details relevant to your deployment.

    After writing this program in a file named index.ts, you would use the Pulumi command-line interface to run pulumi up, which will prompt Pulumi to carry out the deployment based on your code.

    Ensure that the rds-exporter chart is available in the repository you specified, and ensure that your Kubernetes cluster is correctly configured and accessible through your local kubectl configuration since Pulumi uses it to apply the changes.
