    Cluster utilization lets you analyze CPU usage, memory, and size metrics of your cluster deployments.

    To access the cluster utilization view, click the cluster name in the cluster list

    Top row #

    The top row of the cluster utilization pane shows the name of the cluster, a Connection info button, and an options menu. For currently suspended clusters, there is also a Resume button.

    If the cluster is currently running, the Resume button does not display.

    • Analyze metrics with the following charts:

      • The CPU usage chart shows CPU usage of the cluster system.

      • The Memory chart shows the memory usage of the cluster.

      • The Cluster size chart shows the number of running workers.
