Add kubernetes pod emphemeral storage usage as metric

Hi all,

When monitoring critical k8s deployments which have an ephemeral storage limit defined, it is essential to actively keep track on the current usage and get an alert once the limit is nearly reached.


It might be possible to get these metrics by executing "kubectl get --raw "/api/v1/nodes/(your-node-name)/proxy/stats/summary" and transform it into metrics.

We will try to test

However we would be highly appreciate to have this feature in Instana as well. Competitors already can collect the metric:
