Differences in the number of running Pods on the dashboard

Hi!

 

What do we have

Dashboard on which the status of the openshift cluster is displayed and it have two tiles - Custom Charts.

1) One Custom Chart display metric -  "Kubernetes workloads - Pods" and  filtered by "Pod Phase" = "Running"

2) Second Custom Chart display metric - "Kubernetes namespaces - Running pods"

Metrics are limited to one ManagementZone

 

Please tell me why data in these metrics differ?

In "Kubernetes workloads - Pods" we see 100 pods with the "Running" status, while in "Kubernetes namespaces - Running pods" we see 100 pods with DeploymentType = DeploymentConfig and 2-3 DeploymentType = CronJob for example.

Why is the "Running Pods" metric not the same as the Pods metric with filtered "Pod phase" = Running ?

 

Thanks!

Kubernetes workloads are applications running on Kubernetes. Whether your workload is a single component or several that work together, on Kubernetes you run it inside a set of pods.
Kubernetes namespaces are virtual clusters backed by the same physical cluster.
