I am trying out DataDog with AWS EKS. I basically want to send logs and metrics from my Kotlin application deployed on aws EKS to datadog. Has anyone done this before? I see datadog provides helm charts which I can probably use with the Pulumi's helmservice api. I was able to get datadog working on my mac and see the logs and metrics on their portal using the mac datadog agent.
Getting following error :
Copy code
kubernetes:<|> (eks-datadog-agent):
    error: rendered manifests contain a resource that already exists. Unable to continue with install: could not get information about the resource ClusterRole "eks-datadog-agent-a422-kube-state-metrics" in namespace "": <|> "eks-datadog-agent-a422-kube-state-metrics" is forbidden: User "workloads:admin-user" cannot get resource "clusterroles" in API group "<|>" at the cluster scope
