Dashboard

Service Mesh Manager provides a dashboard interface that can be used to diagnose any issues with the underlying deployment. This section provides an introduction to the list of available features on this user interface.

Accessing the dashboard

To access the dashboard set your KUBECONFIG file to the cluster where the Service Mesh Manager control plane is running, then run the following command to open a browser window to the dashboard.

smm dashboard --kubeconfig <path/to/kubeconfig>

In case you are executing this command on a remote machine, complete the following additional steps.

  1. Check the output of the command and forward the indicated port to your local machine.

  2. Open a browser window and navigate to http://127.0.0.1:50500/.

  3. Service Mesh Manager asks for login credentials. To acquire the credentials, follow the instructions on the user interface.

    Alternatively, you can complete the following steps.

    1. Set your KUBECONFIG file to the cluster where the Service Mesh Manager control plane is running, then run the following command.

      smm login --kubeconfig <path/to/kubeconfig>
      

      A temporary login token is displayed. Now you can perform other actions from the command line.
