Kube-state-metrics 1.8.0 - all metrics docu

Intro

kube-state-metrics is focused on generating completely new metrics from Kubernetes' object state (e.g. metrics based on deployments, replica sets, etc.). It holds an entire snapshot of Kubernetes state in memory and continuously generates new metrics based off of it.

Metrics by it self are documeted on the project's github. You can dig into every metrics details on github, however it's not one listing.

On many ocastions (debuggin situations) it's helpfull to check the complete list of all exposed metrics.
So here is what kube-state-metrics v1.8.0 exports on my EKS Kubernetes (v1.15).
