Viewing Cluster Metrics

The OpenShift web console incorporates useful graphs to visualize cluster and resource analytics.

The Home → Dashboard page, which displays a collection of cluster-wide metrics, provides a high-level view of the overall health of the cluster.

The dashboard includes the following metrics:

  • Current cluster capacity based on CPU, memory, storage, and network usage.
  • A time-series graph of total CPU, memory, and disk utilization.
  • A list of top consuming nodes and pods by CPU, memory, or storage.

The Top Consumers page can be useful for identifying problematic pods or nodes. For example, a pod with an unexpected memory leak may appear on the top of the list.
