VMware Project Octant New Release With Container Exec And Workload Viewer

Project Octant has released the version 0.10 with few exciting features, including Container Exec and Workload Viewer. If you are new to VMware’s Project Octant, I encourage you to take a look on my previous post about Project Octant. You can find the latest release 0.10 from here. Let’s see what are these new features in details. 

Project Octant New Release With Container Exec is a great way to interact with its containers. 

Octant now enabled the ability of executing commands against the running containers, interactively on the web browser. No additional software is required to install for this. 

Simply, select the container inside the Pod.

Select the “EXECUTE COMMAND” in the Container tile

Provide the command to be executed, I wanted to use the bash shell of the container and, used “/bin/bash” on the “Command” text box

Interactive command window will appear at the bottom of the. window, multiple tabs can be opened to execute different commands

Commands can be executed as same as the terminal

Workload Viewer

With this added Workload Viewer feature, you can have a clear visibility of the resources utilization. Unfortunately, in my deployment, memory and CPU utilization values didn’t show up. I’m not quite sure what was the reason behind that, but this is a great place have a single plane of visibility to your underlying resources.

Clicking on the Pod tile will lead you to the resource viewer of the deployment.
