Can I configure tolerations for Alertnmanager with monitoring v1?

This document (000020001) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.



Is it possible to configure tolerations or selectors for the Alertmanager container deployed by Rancher monitoring v1 so that the Alertmanager pod will deploy to a node of choice?


  • Running Monitoring v1


It is not possible to configure selectors or tolerations for AlertManager in Monitoring v1 as it is deployed independently of the built-in monitoring functionality.

Due to the limitations in Monitoring v1 and the maturation of the upstream prometheus-operator chart, Monitoring v2 now uses the upstream prometheus-operator helm chart. This means that you can now configure selectors, tolerations, and more options that were not available in v1. We advise upgrading/migrating to v2 if you wish to make use of this functionality.
