Manage cluster nodes
You can check whether cluster nodes are running from the Nodes page.
You can access the Nodes page from the menu icon: ( ).
For each node in the cluster, you can see:
- The IP address of the node
- Whether the node is running or down
- How many CPU cores the node is using
- The GB of memory the node is using
- The GB of storage (disk) the node is using
Tip: Do you need more detailed information?
If you click the node name, you can see the CPU, storage, and memory consumption for the node over the last 20 minutes.
If you expand the node name, you can see the operating system partition and disk partition where the node is running. You can see the size of the partition and how much of the partition is in use.
Kubernetes is designed to handle node outages, so you can still use Watson Studio Local even if some of your nodes are down. However, if a node is down, you must attempt to diagnose and resolve the problem to avoid outages if other nodes fail.
Contact IBM Software Support if you cannot determine why the node failed or how to restart the node.
You can add additional compute or deployment nodes by clicking Add node. See System requirements for Watson Studio Local for the node requirements. Restriction: Watson Studio Local does not support adding additional nodes with GPU.
