Cluster Mode

The Cluster Mode in Monokle Desktop provides real-time insights into the state of your clusters.

The initial overview provides general information about its state and contained resources:

The navigation on the left makes it easy to select types of resources and see their individual state and properties:

And the YAML for each resource can be easily viewed, modified and applied back to your cluster for quick fixes:

Resource Validation in Cluster Mode

All existing validation functionality already available in Monokle is applied to the resources found in your cluster - making it easy to find resources that have validation warning or errors - for example, in regard to the built-in OPA policies:

These errors are of course also highlighted in the source view - allowing you to immediately fix them and deploy the fixed resource back to your cluster.
