This document describes the predefined monitoring dashboards that are available for Anthos clusters on VMware. You'll also find information and links to resources to help you work with dashboards.
Cloud Monitoring provides a curated set of dashboards that are specific to various Google Cloud services. The charts on these dashboards present a selection of metrics relevant to a specific service. These dashboards are installed automatically when a given service, such as Anthos is detected.
When Cloud Monitoring detects that the Anthos metric
kubernetes.io/anthos/container/uptime is available, it makes the predefined
Anthos dashboards available in your project. When you create
Anthos clusters, this metric is available by default, so the dashboard
installation is automatic. The following predefined dashboards are added:
|Anthos Cluster Control Plane Uptime||This dashboard has the following charts to indicate the uptime of
control plane components:
|Anthos Cluster Node Status||This dashboard has the following charts to indicate the status of your
|Anthos Cluster Pod Status||This dashboard has the following charts to indicate the status of pods
running in your clusters:
|Anthos Cluster Utilization Metering||This dashboard has the following charts to indicate the requests and
consumption of CPU, Memory, and Ephemeral storage per cluster:
Starting wtih Anthos release 1.15.0, a new Anthos integration is availablle from the Cloud Monitoring Integration page. You see this integration if you've or if you've set up Anthos on Google Cloud. The Anthos integration includes information, including previews, for the predefined Anthos dashboards:
- Anthos Cluster Control Plane Uptime
- Anthos Cluster Node Status
- Anthos Cluster Pod Status
- Anthos Cluster Utilization Metering
As described in the preceding section, these dashboards are automatically installed when you have Anthos clusters. You can't edit these dashboards directly, since they're fully managed by Google. However, you can make a copy of the dashboard and customize the copied version, or you can add these dashboards as custom dashboards from the Sample library.
Dashboards for older clusters
If you created clusters with an earlier version of Anthos clusters on VMware, you may have out-of-date dashboards. Starting wtih Anthos clusters on VMware version 1.16.0, the following custom dashboards will be deprecated:
These dashboards were installed automatically if you created clusters with Anthos clusters on VMware release 1.15.0 or lower.
We recommend that you remove these deprecated dashboards as described in Delete a custom dashboard.
