Visibility

Introduction

Cost Overview dashboards provide visibility and insights into various metrics generated at cluster/project level. They provide a bird’s eye view of costs and efficiencies for Projects, Clusters and Namespaces. Access is controlled by assigned role. Longer-term retention of historical cost information makes it possible to anticipate future expenses.


Getting to the Dashboards

The dashboard card shows resource cost summary and a trend graph, which is helpful to view service provider vs utilization costs

  • Login to the controller and click on dashboards
  • Select Cost Management
  • Use the appropriate tabs to view the cost metrics

    • All tab shows a central view of the cost metrics across all projects and clusters
    • Project tab shows the cost metrics at a project level
    • Cluster tab shows the cost metrics at a cluster level
  • Use the Date filter to view the metrics on different durations (24 hours, 7 days, 14 days, and 30 days). By default, 24 hours data are presented

  • Use the Clear icon to refresh and get back to the default (24 hours) page

Select the provider (AWS, AZURE, and ONPREM) available in the right corner to view the cost metrics of a specific provider type. Mouse hover on the graph to know the detailed cost metrics for each hour
