I’d like to see the overall workload so I know when to add more hosts to balance the workload. Is it possible in the current release?
There is no such feature in rancher at the moment.
There is a feature request for a Dashboard with overall metrics about all the environments including the overall cpu load, overall memory load etc, so you may want to +1 this one https://github.com/rancher/rancher/issues/2718
Another solution is to install the Prometheus stack from the built-in Rancher Catalog, I just tried it and it works, you get for example a Grafana installation which you can use to setup a dashboard with your own metrics. Looks quite powerful.
Great! I will definitely try that. Thanks for the tip.
