Project Details – K8s

By clicking the selected project or K8s View you are redirected to the Kubernetes Servers. Here you can see all K8s servers for the project with their description.

Accessing Project's details
Figure.1: Accessing project’s details

Project Info #

Under Servers title is a brief description of the project – such as Project Name (with locked/unlocked image), Project StatusCloud TypeKubernetes VersionAccess Profile, Cloud CredentialsKubernetes ProfileAlerting ProfilePolicy ProfileAccess IP Address (if you use this address to ssh connect, please do not use user ubuntu, it’s in use by Taikun for managing the cluster) and Kubernetes Health.

Project Info

You can also see here ETC=Estimated Time to Complete. It is approx time (in minutes) until the cluster will be completed.

Figure.3: ETC

Servers #

Every Server is described by IDServer NameIP AddressFlavorCPU/RAM/Disk SizeRoleStatusKubernetes Health and Creation Time. If you expand the table, you can see the last modification made (Created ByLast ModifiedLast Modified By).

Server status can be:

  • Deleting
  • Failure
  • Pending
  • Pending Delete
  • Pending Upgrade
  • Ready
  • Updating
  • Upgrading

Actions #

Upgrade #

Upgrade your version of Kubespray to the latest one. The button is disabled, if your Kubernetes are up to date. Also if you checked Auto Upgrade during creation.

Commit #

Sends the changes to the repository. Once the cluster is committed you will see ETC in project info.

Repair #

When the server/s are Failed or there is some other problem in the cluster, use repair button.

Figure.5: Repair

If the project is locked ? which you can see under Project Info, you can only preview some pages (e.g. Kube Info). You can’t make any changes.

Add Server #

To create a new server clickadd server button button and fill all the fields. You, as user, can’t delete servers – think twice which and how many servers you want to create.

Add Server
Figure.6: Add server

Server Name – only alphanumeric characters and dash are allowed, 1-30 characters


Letters must be lowercase!

Disk size – should be at least 30GB

Role – you are able to choose from several roles for your servers, which are set according to the Kubernetes settings

Number of Servers – set number for kubeworker or kubemaster, add odd number of masters (min. 3 for a highly available cluster)


The change MUST be committed.

Flavor – choose from the list of offered flavors (e.g. n0.large)


Recommendation for sizing:

* bastion recommended 2 vCPU + 2GB of RAM

* masters recommended 4 vCPU + 8GB of RAM

Kubernetes Node Labels – label nodes where you want to sent or restrict pods; you can add more labels with add label button, for more info see Kubernetes docs.

Function buttons #

Under Add Server are buttons with specific features or more detailed information.

Kubeconfigs #

Add a new kubernetes configuration for your profile and project.

Add Kubeconfig
Figure.8: Add kubeconfig

Kubeconfig Name – choose a name for your kubeconfig (3-230 characters)

Kubeconfig Role

  • cluster-admin – perform any action on any resource, ClusterRoleBinding – gives full control over every resource in the cluster and in all namespaces (or in very resource in the role binding’s namespace – RoleBinding)
  • admin – RoleBinding – allows read/write access to most resources in a namespace, does not allow write access to resource quota or to the namespace itself
  • edit – allows read/write access to most objects in a namespace, does not allow viewing or modifying roles or role bindings, allows accessing Secrets and running Pods as any ServiceAccount in the namespace
  • view – see most objects in a namespace, does not allow viewing roles or role bindings, does not allow viewing Secrets

For more info, see kubernetes documentation.

Personal Kubeconfig – kubeconfig can be used only by you

Kube Configs

download This .yaml file can be download and use to organize information about clusters, users, namespaces, and authentication mechanisms.

delete Delete your kube config if it is no longer needed.

K8s Info #

If Kubernetes is active, Kube Info button will take you to the Kubernetes configuration. For more see Projects – Kubernetes.

Events #

You are redirected to Events, where you can see all Kubernetes changes made in the project. To preview details for more information to each action useshowbutton. A green strip indicates a successful action, a red strip indicates a failed action. Use Clear events for deleting all the events.

You can sort Events by:

  • Search field
  • Filling Start and End Date
  • Tick Only failed to filter failed actions
Events for Monitoring
Figure.10: Events for monitoring

Logs #

Preview Kubernetes cluster logs to Grafana. Logs button is disabled if Monitoring is disabled.

Figure.11: Logs

Write your query and use Start date and End Date for sorting. You can also expand every message – red is added action, no color is other.

Alerts #

First thing when you access Alerts are Firing Alerts. This section is refreshed every 5 minutes, but you can also use the refresh button to see the most updated data.

Firing Alerts
Figure.13: Firing alerts

To see all alerts, use upper right Show All Alerts button. As seen above, firing alerts are marked with red color. For each alert you can see details and use a link that will redirected you to Metrics with the query already written.

Alerts are accessible only if Monitoring is enabled and the project is not empty.

Figure.14: Alerts

The index number at Alerts shows the number of firing alerts. alerts index number When the firing alerts are resolved, the number disappears.

Firing alerts also work from the real-time notifications bell in the header. Red ones are indicate alert, green ones means that the alert is resolved.

Alerts bell
Figure.15: Alerts bell

The notification contains a brief message on a specific project and bellow the message is time of the change. After clicking Show Project, you can access the project in which the alert is.

As the name suggests: Mark as Read and Dismiss all.

Metrics #

Write a query, search Prometheus Metrics and preview the value needed. Modify Step or Date.

Switch between Console and Graph for better results.

Figure.16: Metrics

Project Dashboard #

Dashboard is accessible only if cluster is created and monitoring is enabled.

Here you can see graphs with Memory and CPU usage for the project. You can also see added Query from Manager or Partner.
