v0.34 - Major Performance Improvements

July 30, 2020

Today, we are releasing Infra App v0.34 with a large amount of under-the-hood performance improvements. Stagnant data problems are addressed in this release. For large clusters, we've changed the way we paginate data. You should expect major performance improvements.

Since this is a very substantial update, please reply or let us know if you run into any issues.

Other changes for this week:

  • Cluster connectivity status is now shown in the sidebar under the cluster name
  • Fixed an issue where stale data would show after sleeping, disconnecting from the internet or remaining open for a long time
  • Infra App will now re-load cluster data if the cluster KubeConfig entry changes
  • Fixed an issue where Memory or CPU utilization would show NaN% in a certain setup
  • Fixed an issue where Infra App would crash when viewing an application with config maps
  • Fixed an issue where if the number of nodes exceeded our soft-limit, it wouldn't be shown

If you want to try the Windows version, it's available for download here:

  • The tray icon is now off by default (can be enabled in preferences)
  • Fixed a bug where changing tabs with hotkeys (cmd+1, cmd+2, etc) would go back to a previous workload's view

v0.31 - Cluster / Node View + Other Improvements

June 17, 2020

Today, we are releasing Infra App v0.31. This is a big feature release for us - including a new cluster view that shows cluster utilization and all its related nodes. This will allow you to quickly find information about a cluster and drill down all the way to a particular pod running on a specific node to troubleshoot issues.

From the node view, you'll be able to find utilization with requests/limits you've set, IP addresses, labels, annotations and pods running scheduled for the particular node.  Here you'll also be able to sort pods by CPU / Memory usage, requests or limits similar to the cluster page for individual nodes.

In the pods view, you can view individual pods by clicking on a pod in the pod table, and directly access the related node if needed. From here, you'll also be able to view individual containers, their status and utilization all in one place.

Thank you for giving us feedback during early access. Please reach out or reply to this email if you have more feature requests or bug reports. I'm so excited and can't wait until we get to 1.0!

Some other improvements in this release:

  • Pod shell will remain open while navigating the app unless the current cluster is changed
  • Tables with clickable rows will now highlight to show that they're clickable
  • Clickable areas in the app will now show a pointer cursor
  • Infra App will now use the full width for the application to display information
  • Pod table can now be sorted
  • Fixed an issue where long port names would overlap with other text in the Services table
  • Tweaked utilization/status colors
