Container Dashboards

View information about the containers in a namespace.

Container HexMap Dashboard

Use this dashboard to view the state of your containers in a specific name space. Metric data is collected for the utilization and saturation of CPU, Memory, Disk, or Network. Utilization and saturation are defined as follows:

  • Utilization is the average time that the resource was busy servicing work.
  • Saturation is the degree to which the resource has extra work which it can’t service. The work is often queued.

Dashboard Topology

Double select the hexes in the dashboard HexMap to navigate within the container topology. The hierarchy of information you can access from this dashboard is:

  1. Namespace - View aggregated metrics for all components in the selected namespace topology. (Default: top level view)
  2. Workload - View the metrics for individual workloads which includes aggregated data from associated pods.
  3. Pod - View the metrics for a specific pod which includes aggregated data from associated containers.
  4. Container - View the metrics for a specific contaner.

Dashboard Example

The following figure shows an example of the Container HexMap dashboard.

Figure: Container HexMap Dashboard

Figure: Container HexMap Dashboard

  1. Container Topology HexMap - View and navigate through the container hierarchy.

    In the previous figure, there is a namespace (default) and three workloads.

  2. Container Metrics Graphs - View the saturation and utilization of your container resources. Click CPU, Memory, Disk, Network, or All to view metric data for a specific resource in the container topology. The highlighted region around the graph shows the normal bounds of operation based on historical data. The values that exceed normal operating parameters appear in red.

    In the previous figure, the hex for the namespace is selected. When the namespace hex is selected, the graph shows the accumulated metric data for all the workloads, pods, and agents in the namespace.

  3. Pod Utilization and Saturation Graphs - These graphs show metrics for the individual components that exist within the selected container.

    In the previous figure, the graphs show metric data for individual workloads.


Resources that show as inactive in a dashboard, became inactive within the time period shown in the Metrics Graphs.
