Abandoned Workloads

The Abandoned Workloads page can detect workloads which have not sent or received a meaningful rate of traffic over a configurable duration.

You can access the Abandoned Workloads page by selecting Savings in the left navigation, then selecting Manage abandoned workloads.

The Abandoned Workloads page will display front and center an estimated savings amount per month based on a number of detected workloads considered abandoned, defined by two values:

  • Traffic threshold (bytes/sec): This slider will determine a meaningful rate of traffic (bytes in and out per second) to detect activity of workloads. Only workloads below the threshold will be taken into account, therefore, as you increase the threshold, you should observe the total detected workloads increase.

  • Window (days): From the main dropdown, you will be able to select the duration of time to check for activity. Presets include 2 days, 7 days, and 30 days. As you increase the duration, you should observe the total detected workloads increase.

Filtering your abandoned workloads

Beneath your total savings value and slider scale, you will see a dashboard containing all abandoned workloads. The number of total line items should be equal to the number of workloads displayed underneath your total savings value.

You can filter your workloads through four dropdowns; across clusters, namespaces, owners, and owner kinds.

Selecting an individual line item will expand the item, providing you with additional traffic data for that item.
