Cluster Dashboard
The Cluster Dashboard provides a number of views, ranging from an overview of all connected Kubernetes clusters to detailed views outlining metrics for individual clusters as well as the Kubernetes artefacts belonging to those clusters.
Below are some of the views provided:

Kubernetes Custer Overview

The Kubernetes Cluster Overview provides overall cluster metrics for all connected clusters across cloud providers and on-premise.
The metrics provided include Cluster Score, Next 30 Days Forecast and Total Cost. These metrics are provided for the time frame chosen using the date picker in the top right.
Kubernetes Cluster Overview
Cluster Score is a measure of cluster utilization. The following utilization tiers are applied when calculating the cluster score:
0-30 = low
31-60 = medium
61-100 = high
Next 30 Days Forecast is based on the costs for the previous 7 days. The forecast is displayed only when the date range chosen includes the previous 7 days. Date range can be chosen using the date picker in the top right.
Total Cost represents the total costs of that cluster for the date range chosen.
The Cluster Overview also outlines the number of nodes currently running in that cluster, the total number of unique nodes that belonged to that cluster in the timeframe chosen as well as when the metrics were last updated.
Kubernetes Cluster Overview
In the screenshot above 3 nodes are currently running in the replex cluster while 9 unique nodes have belonged to the cluster during the timeframe chosen.

Detailed Cluster View

The Detailed Cluster View can be accessed by clicking on one of the listed clusters in the Cluster Overview.
The Detailed Cluster View outlines Total Monthly Cost, Idle Cost, Savings and Efficiency metrics for individual Kubernetes clusters.
Efficiency metrics are provided for all three cluster resources including CPU, RAM and Disk and are color coded to provide an indication of Used Resources and Idle Resources.
The Detailed Cluster View also provides a cost progression chart of Total Monthly Cluster Costs for the previous 6 months.
Detailed Cluster View
The Widgets at the bottom of the view provide cost allocation metrics for all Namespaces and Deployments in that cluster for the last 24 hours.
The Namespaces Widget outlines costs for all Namespaces in the cluster as a percentage of total cluster total.
Similarly, the Deployments Widget outlines costs for all Deployments in the cluster as a percentage of total cluster cluster costs.
Cost Allocation Widgets

Namespaces Overview

The Namespaces Overview outlines cost metrics for all Namespaces belonging to that cluster. It can be accessed by clicking on the Namespaces Widget in the Detailed Cluster View.
Cost metrics are provided as two charts: Allocated Cost Combined and Allocated Cost Detailed.
Allocated Cost Combined represents the progression of total costs for all Namespaces in the cluster across the entire duration chosen.
The Allocated Cost Detailed chart dynamically groups total costs for all Namespaces on a weekly, daily or hourly basis, based on the duration chosen.
The individual bars representing total namespace costs are broken down into RAM, CPU, PVC and Node Disk Costs, for a more informative and easy-to-understand cost analysis.
Total Namespace Costs
The Cost Details section of the Namespaces Overview provides detailed cost metrics for individual Namespaces in the cluster.
The metrics provided include the Utilized Cost for all three resources (CPU, RAM and Storage) in that particular namespace, the Idle Cost of that Namespace (both as an absolute $ number and a percentage), External Cost and the Total Cost.
These metrics are outlined in the Summaries tab of the Cost Details section.
Cost Details Section - Summaries Tab
The Cost Development tab of the Cost Details section charts cost progression for each namespace individually across the duration chosen.
Namespace charts can be sorted Alphabetically, Total Cost, Idle Cost or by Variance.
Cost Details Section - Cost Development Tab
Sorting by Total Cost will organize namespace charts, showing the namespace with the highest cost first.
Sorting Namespaces by Total Cost
Sorting by Idle Cost will organize namespace charts, showing the namespace with the highest change in cost first.
Sorting Namespaces by Idle Cost
Sorting by Variance will organize namespace charts, showing the namespace with the highest change in cost first.
Sorting Namespaces by Variance

Namespace Overview Filters

The Namespace Overview can be filtered using the + Add Filter button in the top left of the screen.
+ Add Filter allows Namespaces to be filtered using either Namespace Name or Kubernetes Labels with unique key/value combinations. The Namespace Overview can also be filtered using a combination of both Namespace Name and Kubernetes Labels.

Filter by Namespace Name

To filter the Namespace Overview by Namespace Name, click on + Add Filter, input the name of the namespace you want to filter by in the Filter by namespaces field or choose one from the drop down.
This will filter the Namespace Overview to display cost metrics for the namespace chosen:
Filter Namespace Overview by Namespace Name

Filter by Label (Key/Value Combination)

To filter the Namespace Overview by Label, click + Add Filter, input both the Key and Value of a Kubernetes Label in the Filter by labels field or choose one from the drop down.
This will filter the Namespace Overview to display cost metrics for that specific key/value combination.
Filter Namespace Overview by Label

Filter by Namepace Name and Label Key

The Namespace Overview can also be filtered using a combination of Namespace Name and Labels.
To do this click + Add Filter, input both a Namespace Name and Key Value combination in the appropriate fields or choose from the drop down.
This will filter the Namespace Overview to display cost metrics for that specific Namespace Name/Label combination.
Filter Namespace Overview by Namespace Name and Label

Filter by Label Key

The Namespace Overview can also be filtered using only Label Keys.
‌To do this, click Group by Label and choose a Label Key in the Select label to group by pop-up.
This will filter the Namespace Overview to display cost metrics for that specific Label Key.
