Note: This sidecar has been deprecated and replaced with the CSIVolumeHealth feature in Kubernetes.

The CSI external-health-monitor-agent is a sidecar container that is deployed together with the CSI node driver, similar to how the CSI node-driver-registrar sidecar is deployed. It calls the CSI node RPC NodeGetVolumeStats to check the health condition of the CSI volumes and report events on Pod if the condition of a volume is abnormal.


CSI drivers that support VOLUME_CONDITION and NODE_GET_VOLUME_STATS node capabilities should use this sidecar container.

For detailed information (binary parameters, RBAC rules, etc.), see https://github.com/kubernetes-csi/external-health-monitor/blob/master/README.md.


The CSI external-health-monitor-agent is deployed as a DaemonSet. See https://github.com/kubernetes-csi/external-health-monitor/blob/master/README.md for more details.
