Kubernetes Dashboard is a general purpose, web-based UI for Kubernetes clusters. It allows users to manage applications running in the cluster and troubleshoot them, as well as manage the cluster itself.

Advantages of using dashboard

  • To get an overview of applications running on your cluster.
  • To create or modify the individual Kubernetes resources for example Deployments, Jobs, etc.
  • It provides the information on the state of Kubernetes resources in your cluster, and on any errors that may have occurred.

For further details have a look at this blog.
