The minimal blueprint is the cluster blueprint selected by "default" for both provisioned and imported cluster types. With the minimal blueprint, all the optional addons are disabled by default. Customers can use the minimal blueprint as the base blueprint and select the supported addons as required.
Both arm64 and amd64 based architecture nodes are supported for K8s Operators on selecting minimal blueprint
The table below shows the addons that are enabled in the "minimal blueprint".
|k8s Management Operator||YES|
|Monitoring & Alerting||NO|
Impact to Dashboards¶
The majority of the widgets in the dashboards are powered by the Monitoring addons. Since this addon is not available with the minimal blueprint, many of these widgets will be disabled. Basic cluster level resource metrics are still captured and presented on the cluster card. The lack of an integrated monitoring and alerting stack means that users have to resort to an alternate stack for equivalent functionality or use the zero trust kubectl access (ztka) channel for visibility etc.
