Pods view#

Kubernetes Pods are the smallest deployable units in the Kubernetes ecosystem. A Pod represents a single instance of a running process in a cluster, encapsulating one or more containers. Containers within a Pod share the same network namespace, allowing them to communicate with each other using localhost. Pods are fundamental building blocks in Kubernetes, providing a cohesive environment for managing and scaling applications. Kubernetes Documentation: Pods for details.

The Pods table lists the cluster pods. You can click the list items and open the details panel with comprehensive information and various options. The Namespace drop-down list filters the cluster objects by namespaces. You can also search for a specific item using the Search Pods 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 table content can be exported in the CSV file format.
