I am running metricbeat:8.6.1 and prometheus:2.43.1 on AKS 1.25.6
Both of these are scraping metrics from kube-state-metrics:2.8.2
Because of an edge case we were forced to make use of the Custom Resource State Metrics functionality within kube-state-metrics as described here: https://github.com/kubernetes/kube-state-metrics/blob/main/docs/customresourcestate-metrics.md
A new metric was introduced that is of the type “Info”.
After this was deployed to kube-state-metrics, Prometheus was able to scrape this and all worked perfect.
The only problem is that it seems to break meticbeat.
When looking in the logs, we see the following:
decoding of metric family failed: text format parsing error in line 13966: unknown metric type "info".
Is this a case of missing functionality or miss configuration?
