Understanding Infrastructure Cost and Efficiency from Dashboard

Overview

CloudNatix provides users with Dashboard that provides a birds-eye view of their global cloud infrastructure footprint. CloudNatix provides an access controlled view of cost, resource utilization, and any cloud waste as well as workload overview.

CloudNatix Dashboard is context sensitive and can be used to view an entire company or an “Organization” within the company’s global cloud infrastructure overview.

Accessing Dashboard

CloudNatix Dashboard can be accessed via http://app.cloudnatix.com/. You can use CloudNatix provisioned username and password to login into the Dashboard, you can choose a sign up/in with Google SSO or GitHub SSO.

Birds eye-view

The top section of the dashboard provides birds eye-view with guided next steps. The bottom section of the dashboard displays more detailed information, and you can view data categorized by region, organization, namespace, Cloud Service Provider (= CSP), etc.

Namespace cost

The "Namespace" tab shows the cost and performance data grouped by Kubernetes namespaces. As shown in the screenshot below, you can easily identify which namespaces are more expensive than others and their resource efficiency.

The cost of a namespace is calculated based on the resource requests of the workloads running in the namespace.

Grouping with Organization

By default, CloudNatix Dashboard shows the entire Organizational topology that the currently logged-in user has access to and all its sub-organizations.

The Organizational topology switcher can be found on top left corner of the dashboard. The user has the ability to switch the Dashboard view to the appropriate organization.
