Priority Classes view#

Kubernetes PriorityClasses are a vital concept for specifying the importance of workloads within your cluster. They allow you to define different levels of priority for your applications, ensuring that high-priority applications get the resources they need during resource scarcity. See Kubernetes Documentation: Pod Priority and Preemption for details.

The Priority Classes table lists the cluster PriorityClasses. You can click the list items and open the details panel with comprehensive information and various options. You can also search for a specific item using the Search Priority Classes input field.

You can resize and reorder the table columns. Drag the column border in the table header to change the width. To change the column position, drag its header left or right. Also, you can sort objects in ascending or descending order by clicking the header of a column and configure the column visibility. By default, the table consists of the following columns:
