Use the Config Sync dashboard
This page explains how to use the Config Sync dashboard.
This dashboard provides you with a comprehensive overview of the packages that Config Sync manages and the status of the resources in these packages.
Access the dashboard
In the Google Cloud console:
If you use Google Kubernetes Engine, go to the GKE Config page under the Config & Policy section.
If you use Anthos, go to the Anthos Config page under the Config & Policy section.
- Select the project you want to view.
View the dashboard
The dashboard tab provides you an overview of the status of your Config Sync installations:
Reconciliation status shows you how many packages are reconciled. A package is reconciled if the state that you want, as expressed by the resources in the package, has been realized.
Your packages can have the following reconciliation statuses:
- Current: the actual state of the package matches the state that you want. The reconcile process is considered complete until there are changes to either the state you want or the actual state.
- InProgress: the actual state of the package hasn't yet reached the state that you want (as expressed by the resources in the package,). Newly created packages usually start with this status.
- Failed: the process of reconciling the actual state with the state that you want has encountered an error or it has made insufficient progress.
- Unknown: Config Sync couldn't determine the reconciliation status of a package.
Synchronization status shows you how many packages are synced. A package is synced when the latest observed state of the package in the source (for example, a Git repository) is reflected in the cluster.
Your packages can have the following synchronization statuses:
- Synced: the package is synced to a cluster.
- Pending: the package is pending synchronization.
- Reconciling: the Deployment that syncs a package is being reconciled.
- Stalled: the Deployment that syncs a package is stalled.
- Error: the package encountered an error during syncing.
- Unknown: Config Sync couldn't determine the synchronization status of a package.
Config Sync status shows you how many Config Sync components are healthy in your clusters.
Additional tables show you issues grouped by package and cluster, provide links to install Config Sync and view settings, and resources for getting started.
View package status
The Packages tab enables you to view in-depth details about individual packages and clusters. Use this tab to better understand potential causes behind sync errors and unhealthy resources.
The Settings tab shows you a list of clusters, their sync status, and what version of Anthos Config Management that they have installed.
To learn more about the sync status, use the values in the Config sync status column:
If the cluster is synced, click check_circle Synced to view additional information about the Config Sync settings for a cluster.
If the repository isn't synced, click error Error to view detailed error information.
You can also use this tab to update your Config Sync configuration:
- Beside the name of the cluster that you want to update, select the context menu more_vert and then select edit Edit Config.
