You can monitor the status of provisioned Tanzu Kubernetes clusters using kubectl.

Procedure

  1. Authenticate with the Supervisor Cluster. See Connect to the Supervisor Cluster as a vCenter Single Sign-On User.
  2. Switch to the Supervisor Namespace where the cluster is running.
    kubectl config use-context SUPERVISOR-NAMESPACE
  3. View a list of the Tanzu Kubernetes clusters running in the namespace.
    kubectl get tanzukubernetesclusters
    This command returns the status of the cluster. For a description of the status fields, see Tanzu Kubernetes Cluster Lifecycle Status in kubectl.
  4. View the details of the cluster.
    kubectl describe tanzukubernetescluster <cluster-name>
    The command returns the details of the cluster. In the Status section of the command output, you see detailed information about the cluster.
