We upgraded the underlying architecture of Enterprise Distributed Application Service (EDAS) at 24:00 on February 20, 2020. EDAS provides lightweight O&M capabilities for applications in Kubernetes clusters that were imported after this time but has no function changes for applications in Kubernetes clusters that were imported earlier. Read this topic when performing application management.

Scenarios

  • New version: For applications in Kubernetes clusters that were imported after 24:00 on February 20, 2020, EDAS provides the new Application Management page. For more information, see View application overview.
  • Previous version: For applications in Kubernetes clusters that were imported before 24:00 on February 20, 2020, EDAS provides the old Application Details page for management. For more information, see User guide (previous).
    Note After the architecture of EDAS Kubernetes cluster was automatically updated at 24:00 on February 20, 2020, the applications created in the Kubernetes cluster are provided with the new Application Management page for management. We will provide the One-click Upgrade function for you to upgrade the management page for existing applications in Kubernetes clusters that were imported before this time.

Benefits

The new application management feature provides one-stop lightweight O&M capabilities. When a Kubernetes cluster is imported to EDAS, EDAS monitors the cluster and its applications in real time, such as the service details, instance details, and change records. EDAS also provides operation reports and corresponding solutions in real time.

For example, the Change List. In the new version, EDAS displays the real-time information of application metrics during a change process, such as the average number of errors, response time (RT), and the number of single-instance requests.
