1. Deploy the fluentbit-resource helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the fluentbit Helm chart on AWS EKS using Pulumi, you'll need to perform a few steps:

    1. Create an EKS cluster if you don't have one already.
    2. Deploy the fluentbit Helm chart to the EKS cluster.

    We will be using the @pulumi/eks package to create an EKS cluster and then the @pulumi/kubernetes package to deploy the fluentbit chart to that cluster.

    Below is a TypeScript program for Pulumi that carries out these tasks:

    import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { desiredCapacity: 2, minSize: 1, maxSize: 2, // other configurations ... }); // Export the clusters' kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Deploy the `fluentbit` Helm chart to the EKS cluster const fluentbitChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("fluentbit", { chart: "fluentbit", repo: "fluent", // This is an example repo; you need to specify the correct one. version: "0.15.0", // Specify the version of fluentbit you wish to deploy namespace: "kube-system", // Values from the Helm chart's values.yaml file can be provided here. values: { // example configuration values here. For fluentbit, // you might want to set up things like backend configuration, // resource limits, or other options }, }, { provider: cluster.provider }); // Export the Fluentbit Helm chart resources export const fluentbit = fluentbitChart.resources;


    • We are importing two packages; @pulumi/eks is used to provision an EKS cluster on AWS and @pulumi/kubernetes to work with Kubernetes resources including deploying Helm charts.

    • eks.Cluster: This creates a new EKS cluster with the specified configuration. In this code, I've shown a minimal configuration, but there are several other options you can specify, such as the region, VPC settings, and node size.

    • kubeconfig: It is crucial to export the kubeconfig from the cluster so that you can interact with your Kubernetes cluster using kubectl or other Kubernetes tools.

    • k8s.helm.v3.Chart: This Pulumi resource is used to deploy a Helm chart. In this case, it is the fluentbit chart, which will deploy Fluent Bit to our EKS cluster in the kube-system namespace. There's a placeholder value for the repository; you should replace it with the correct repository URL where the fluentbit Helm chart is hosted.

    Make sure you have Pulumi installed, and the AWS CLI set up and configured before running this Pulumi program. Create a new Pulumi project, copy the provided program, install the required dependencies with npm or yarn, and run pulumi up to provision the resources. Remember, the actual Helm chart configuration in values will vary based on your needs.
