Description Yadan Pei 2020-07-01 08:23:11 UTC
Description of problem:
Node list page, CPU column only shows CPU usage, but for Memory and Filesystem, we are showing both usage and total in usage/total format

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.admin user goes to Node list page, check the columns in table

Actual results:
1. Memory column shows 2.03 GiB / 15.2 GiB, Filesystem shows 33.93 GiB / 493.6 GiB but CPU column only show usage 0.217 cores

Expected results:
1. CPU column should also show values in format: usage/total, sometimes master node has 8 vCPU, while some other nodes may only havef 4 vCPU, it's better if we can show the total number in the column to be consistent with other columns

Reassigning to Sam as he already has a PR in flight to change node list metrics at https://github.com/openshift/console/pull/5819

Checked on 4.7 cluster with payload: 4.7.0-0.ci-2020-10-11-211311
Now on nodes list page, in cpu column, it shows used cpu and total cpu, eg: "0.416 / 4 cores", to keep consistent with other columns format, it's better to show as "0.416 cores/ 4 cores". Sam, WDYT?

Comment 10 Yanping Zhang 2020-10-14 10:37:06 UTC
Based on question in Comment 9, assigned the bug first. Thanks!

Comment 11 Samuel Padgett 2020-11-13 20:39:18 UTC
I'm a little undecided on this since the unit will always be the same, and there's not much space in the table. But probably we should be consistent.

Comment 15 Yadan Pei 2021-03-08 06:19:00 UTC
On Nodes list page, now we show 0.481 cores / 4 cores

Goes to Node Terminal and check CPU info manually

sh-4.4# cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep 'processor' | wc -l

sh-4.4# cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep 'physical id' | uniq | wc -l

From above output, we can know that the node has 1 physical CPU and 4 logic CPUs, I understand that the number 4 is not the number of cores so we should remove the `cores` unit labels from the list

Let me know if I'm wrong

Comment 17 Samuel Padgett 2021-04-30 13:43:35 UTC
Simon, can you help answer the question in comment #15?

Comment 18 Simon Pasquier 2021-04-30 14:40:42 UTC
I guess it depends on whether "cores" applies to the Kubernetes level [1] (e.g. 1 core = 1 vCPU or 1 hyperthread) or to the hardware level (1 core = 1 physical core). I'm quite sure that most people would assume Kubernetes cores here. I'm not sure if there's a term other than "cores" which would be better suited.


Comment 19 Yadan Pei 2021-05-06 03:03:47 UTC
Thank you very much @spasquie, then I think using 'cores' is more reasonable and acceptable

Comment 20 Yadan Pei 2021-05-06 03:05:19 UTC
based on comment 15, comment 18 and comment 19, now Nodes list page is showing correct usage/total 

Moving to VERIFIED
