A visualized monitoring dashboard for Kubernetes.

kubectl also has top subcommand, but it is not able to:

  • Watch usages regularly for Pod/Node
  • Compare the usage of Pod resources with Node or limits/requests

ktop resolves these problems and has a more graphical dashboard.


For MacOS:

$ brew tap ynqa/tap-archived
$ brew install ktop

From source codes:

$ go get -u
