Hello.I'm trying to capture a prometheus endpoint but the site needs basic authentication with username and password for the collection to be done at /metrics/prometheus.I found some information at this link: https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/prometheus-engine/blob/v0.4.3-gke.0/doc/api.md#scrapeendpointThe information above was still not enough for a successful collection.Below is the podmonitoring configuration I performed to test:apiVersion: monitoring.googleapis.com/v1kind: PodMonitoringmetadata: name: demo-prometheus labels: app.kubernetes.io/name: demo-prometheusspec: selector: matchLabels: app: demo-prometheus endpoints: - port: metrics-demo path: /actuator/prometheus/ params: headers: authorization: type: 'Basic' credentials: 'bqwWFdsanaXM1Om00ZzFfsaSAWzNSo=' interval: 5sI believe there are two errors, one is the bad formatting of yaml and the other error is possibly the parameters passed are not correct, the file t

Run your AI/ML, video transcoding, and other GPU workloads on Google's fully managed Kubernetes platform! NVIDIA T4 and A100 GPUs are now available on GKE Autopilot.The great thing about running GPU workloads on Autopilot is that all you need to do is specify your GPU requirements in your Pod configuration, and Google Cloud take care of the rest. No need to install drivers separately, or worry about non-GPU pods running on your valuable GPU nodes, because Autopilot takes care of GPU configuration and Pod placement automatically.

Hello everyone, is there a channel, group, or thread, whether in this community or elsewhere, where you can make features requests to the GCP ?I’ve been playing with Cloud Run, which is really a cool service, but I’ve noticed that the `SET UP CONTINUOUS DEPLOYMENT` subsequent form does not allow to look for a Dockerfile that is not in the root of the repo while having the root folder as the build context (as you would do with in a docker-compose file by specifying the context);this prompted me to do something quite ackward, which is creating the same Dockerfile at the root of my project instead of just referencing it from the GCP UI; both files are exactly the same, and it terms of maintenance, this is not great Is there a way to keep a nested Dockerfile as the one which the build will be made from without having to copy the exact same file at root just because of build context ? Does it worth a feature request, if such a channel existed ? Thanks 🙏
Hello.I have an elastic cloud in kubernets and I would like to make the elastic service accessible from the internet, but I can't because elastic needs a token to return 200 in the health check but I couldn't find where to pass the token, so my backend, which is elastic, is always with unavailable status because whenever the health check hits /_cat/health the status returning is 401.
