Datadog creating more host than expected

After setting up Datadog following the datadog / kubernetes tutorial, I went from one host (local one) to 7 and I don’t know why.
Since Datadog pricing is based on hosts, is it possible to reduce this number ?

Hello @mmc972 ,

When installing the datadog agent, it runs on every node of your cluster. As you have currently 3 nodes in your cluster, you should have at least 3 nodes in your datadog dashboard.

Duplicated hosts seem to be a known behavior on datadog side:

Did you add the host manually or block the metadata endpoint ?

Hello thanks for your anwser, it seems the 3 hosts that seemed to be inactive have correctly disappeared now as the documentation you sent said :+1:
