Spaces resemble virtual slices of infrastructure resources and provide fine-grained control of access and available resources over the infrastructure on which the Space exists.
Spaces combine a variety of functions into a single management layer:
Virtual control and isolation of infrastructure resources
Control resource consumption with allocation rules
Access management for Clusters, Applications, Containers and Container Image Registries
Aggregation layer for data collection, such as Logs and Metrics
Aggregation of collected data
Spaces provide an aggregated view of data generated by applications that can be used for data monitoring and queries.
All log messages and metrics can be queried and aggregated by a specific Space ID to monitor your infrastructure and identify critical errors, if necessary.
As a Space supports correlation for the applications it contains, it can help identify the root cause of the context of an error. For example:
Breakdown of log messages to identify the root cause of failure
Breaking down metrics to identify unusual or irregular resource consumption and usage
Breakdown of metrics to identify application stability
Breakdown of network metrics to identify unusual and irregular connections and communications
Logs provide information about the stability of all applications that the Space contains.
Metrics provide information about the fine-grained resource allocation and the usage of the Space over time.
