Resource allocation, the amount of cluster resource consumption something is responsible for, defined as
Combining spend data into groups based on a defined category which is usually a Kubernetes concept such as (but not limited to) cluster, namespace, or service.
Connecting your Kubecost with a cloud service provider to utilize their billing APIs and receive out-of-cluster (OOC) costs. Necessary to provide cost reconciliation. Learn more.
Pod resource efficiency. The resource utilization vs. resource request over a given time window. Learn more.
Extract, transform, load. Kubecost data processing architecture which retrieves cluster metrics and presents them in the Kubecost UI. Data is extracted from Prometheus, transformed into Kubecost structures, and those structures are loaded into stores, which can be queried by Kubecost APIs.
Cluster idle cost. The difference between the cost of allocated resources and the cost of the hardware they run on. The cost of space which can be used to schedule additional pods without disrupting existing workloads. Learn more.
Gateway which routes traffic into a cluster. Learn more.
Individual cluster in a multi-cluster environment whose context you view the Kubecost UI through. Designated by setting Helm flag
Microsoft Azure billing API that can be integrated with Kubecost to provide accurate pricing data. Learn more.
Matches in-cluster asset costs with up-to-date billing data from a cloud service provider to provide accurate cost metrics. Learn more.
Any cluster in a multi-cluster environment that isn't the primary cluster.
Kubernetes object that exposes an interface to outside consumers. When using the Cloud Cost Explorer, Service refers to an external cloud service (like AWS' S3).
