This topic describes how to view the 3D topology at the container layer for a cluster to implement drill-down analysis.

Go to the 3D topology page

  1. Log on to the ARMS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Container Monitoring.
  3. In the top navigation bar of the MNS console, select the region where your cluster is deployed.
  4. On the Container Monitoring page, click the name of the Kubernetes cluster for which you want to view the 3D topology at the container layer.
  5. In the left-side navigation pane, click Cluster Topology.
  6. On the Service or Workload tab of a cluster topology, find a namespace and click the Expand icon icon in the upper-right corner of the namespace to show the resources in the namespace.
  7. Right-click a resource and select View container layer (3D).

    The 3D topology at the container layer displays both the network topology and the resource topology of the resource, as shown in the following figure.

Network topology

The network topology displays the resources that are associated with the selected resource and the namespaces to which these resources belong.

Container monitoring - 3D topology - Namespaces

In the network topology, you can perform the following operations:

  • Move the pointer over a resource to view the type, name, and status of this resource.
  • Click the selected resource to view its details. For more information, see Node details.
  • Click a resource that is associated with the selected resource to view the 3D topology at the container layer for the associated resource.

Resource topology

The resource topology displays the nodes that are associated with the selected resource and the related pods and containers on each node.

Container monitoring - 3D topology - Nodes

In the resource topology, each hexagon indicates a node, each hollow cube indicates a pod, and each solid cube indicates a container.

In the resource topology, you can perform the following operations:

  • Move the pointer over a node, pod, or container to view its type, name, and status.
  • Click a node, pod, or container to view its details. For more information, see Node details, Pod details, and Container details.

Resource details

Click a resource in a network topology to view the details of the resource in the right-side details panel.

The right-side details panel displays the statistics on and the time series curves of the number of requests, number of errors, average response time, and number of instances. The right-side details panel also displays the time series curve of the number of slow calls.

container monitoring allows you to view the following protocol-related metrics: the number of requests, response time, number of errors, and number of slow calls.

Click the name of a protocol to view the time series curves of the preceding metrics related to the protocol. For more information about protocol-related metrics, see Protocol-related metrics.
