⚠️ Repo Archive Notice

As of Nov 13, 2020, charts in this repo will no longer be updated. For more information, see the Helm Charts Deprecation and Archive Notice, and Update.


heartbeat is a lightweight daemon that periodically check the status of your services and determine whether they are available.


This chart is deprecated and no longer supported.


This chart deploys heartbeat agents to all the nodes in your cluster via a DaemonSet.

By default this chart only ships a single output to a file on the local system. Users should set config.output.file.enabled=false and configure their own outputs as documented


  • Kubernetes 1.9+

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release, run:

$ helm install --name my-release stable/heartbeat

After a few minutes, you should see service statuses being written to the configured output, which is a log file inside the heartbeat container.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the heartbeat chart and their default values.

Parameter Description Default
image.repository The image repository to pull from
image.tag The image tag to pull 6.7.0
image.pullPolicy Image pull policy IfNotPresent

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release \
    --set rbac.create=true \

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml stable/heartbeat

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml
