Kubernetes Pod Autoscaling (HPA) using AppDynamics Metrics


Kubernetes Pod Autoscaling (HPA) using AppDynamics Metrics

Hi @Mitchell.Maler


Thank you for posting this question on the AppDynamics Community.


Pertaining to your query, we do not support the auto-scaling capabilities of Kubernetes yet. AppDynamics currently does not have a feature similar to Custom Metrics Adapter.


That said, we are striving to improve the Kuberenetes visibility capabilities in each release. Please keep a watch on the Latest Release space for product announcements.
