Daemon Sets view#

A Kubernetes DaemonSet is a critical resource for managing applications that need to run on all or specific nodes in a cluster. A DaemonSet ensures that one pod of the specified type runs on each node, guaranteeing that no two pods of the same DaemonSet run on the same node. This is especially useful for monitoring, logging, and other node-level tasks in your cluster. See Kubernetes Documentation: DaemonSet.

The Daemon Sets table lists the cluster DaemonSets. You can click the DaemonSet and open the details panel with comprehensive information and access to various options for that DaemonSet. To find DaemonSets, you can filter DaemonSets by namespaces using the Namespace drop-down list and search for specific DaemonSets using the Search DaemonSets 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:

The default table columns include:

Column Description
Name The name of the DaemonSet.
Namespace The namespace in which the DaemonSet resides.
Pods The current number of pods managed by the DaemonSet.
Node Selector The node selector that defines the nodes for the DaemonSet to run on.
Age The DaemonSet duration.
