Install Resoto with Kubernetes

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.


  • Helm (version 3 or above)
  • Kubernetes cluster (kind or minikube should work as well)
  • At least 2 CPU cores and 8 GB of RAM

Resoto performs CPU-intensive graph operations. In a production setup, we recommend at least four cores and 16 gigabytes of RAM. See Configuring Resoto Worker for more information.

Installing Resoto

  1. Add the Some Engineering Helm chart repository:

    $ helm repo add someengineering
  2. Update cached chart information:

    $ helm repo update
  3. And install the resoto chart:

    $ helm install resoto someengineering/resoto --set image.tag=edge

And just like that, you have Resoto running in a Kubernetes cluster! A collect run will begin automatically. This first collect usually takes less than 3 minutes.

Accessing Credentials

The Helm chart stack generates credentials that are used by Resoto's components.

These credentials are stored in Kubernetes Secrets as Base64-encoded strings:

SecretDescriptionOutput Command
arango-userThe ArangoDB user and passwordkubectl get secret arango-user -o jsonpath="{.data.password}" \| base64 --decode
resoto-pskThe pre-shared key used for communication between componentskubectl get secret resoto-psk -o jsonpath="{.data.psk}" \| base64 --decode
