Replication Controllers view#

Kubernetes Replication Controllers are a fundamental resource for maintaining a specified number of pod replicas running at all times. They ensure that the desired number of replicas is maintained and provide self-healing capabilities in case pods fail. Replication Controllers are an essential tool for guaranteeing the availability and reliability of applications within a Kubernetes cluster. See Kubernetes Documentation: ReplicationController for details.

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