Each alarm entry has a header, details on the issue, severity level, category, corresponding cluster name, corresponding host and timestamp. All the alarms listed here are also accessible directly under the individual cluster main menu available at Alarms → Alarms.

Click on the alarm entry itself to see the full details and recommendations. Furthermore, you can click on the Full Alarm Details to see the full information, and recommendations and to send out this alarm as an email to the recipients configured under Sidebar → Email Notifications. Click Ignore Alarm to silent the respective alarm from appearing in the list again.


Shows aggregated view of jobs that have been initiated and performed by ClusterControl across clusters (e.g., deploying a new cluster, adding an existing cluster, cloning, creating a backup, etc). Each job entry has a job status and a cluster name, which the user started the job and timestamp. All the jobs listed here are also accessible directly under the individual cluster main menu available at Logs → Jobs.

Click on the job entry itself to see its most recent job messages. Furthermore, you can click on the Full Job Details to see the full job specifications and messages. Under the Full Job Details popup, you can see the full command sent to the controller service for that particular job by clicking on the Expand Job Specs button. Underneath it are the full job messages in descending order (newer first) returned by the controller service. The Copy to clipboard button will copy the content of the job messages to the clipboard.

Note that the GUI v1 is considered a feature-freeze product with no future development. All new developments will be happening on ClusterControl GUI v2. See User Guide (GUI v2).
