Monitoring

Cluster monitoring via Grafana/Prometheus comes built in with QHub. It’s enabled by default.

Accessing the Grafana dashboards

Users can access the monitoring dashboards via Grafana at: your-qhub-domain.com/monitoring. The initial login credentials are username: admin and password: prom-operator, but users should change the administrator password immediately after the first log in.

More than 25 prebuilt dashboards come with Qhub. To access them, hover over the dashboards icon, then click “Manage” as indicated in the image below.

See Existing Dashboards

For example, the General/Kubernetes/Compute Resources/Node/Pods dashboard allows you to easily see which pods are using the most compute and memory on a particular node of your kubernetes cluster.
