Prometheus Mysql Exporter

DEPRECATED and moved to


$ helm install stable/prometheus-mysql-exporter


This chart bootstraps a prometheus mysql exporter deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager. The exporter can connect to mysql directly or using the Cloud SQL Proxy.

Installing the Chart

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

$ helm install --name my-release stable/prometheus-mysql-exporter --set mysql.user="username",mysql.pass="password","",mysql.port="3306"

The command deploys a mysql exporter on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

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 mysql exporter chart and their default values.
