In this hands on lab we will be taking a look at using addons in minikube. In this case we will be using the heapster addon to provide some monitoring insight into our minikube cluster. Heapster has been deprecated but the addon is still available and so we will be using it as the example. In order to access our installation we will be leveraging the minikube ip in combination with a nginx proxy to allow access to the graphana dashboard.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
