arms-prometheus throttling provides a unified approach to manage Kubernetes clusters that are deployed across different regions. This topic describes how to enable arms-prometheus on an application that runs in an external Kubernetes cluster.


You have connected to an external Kubernetes cluster through Container Service for Kubernetes. For more information, see Register a cluster.


  1. Log on to the Container Service console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Marketplace > App Catalog. The Alibaba Cloud Apps tab appears.
  3. Choose Operations/Observability (6) > ack-arms-prometheus.
  4. Click the Parameters tab to set parameters.
    Parameter Description
    clusterID The ID of the external cluster.
    userID Your Alibaba Cloud account name.
    Note userID need to be enclosed in quotation marks.
    regionID The region where ARMS is deployed.
    Note If a leased line connects the cluster and the VPC network, the leased line will be automatically used.


After the deployment is complete, you can view monitoring data and customize alert rules. For more information, see Use ARMS Prometheus Monitoring.
