The Nodes section provides a comprehensive view of all of the nodes that are used across your cluster. There are two tabs for this screen, Agents and Masters. By default, you will see the Agents tab.
Figure 1 - Agents tab
This is the default view. Also by default, all of your nodes are displayed in List view, sorted by health. You can filter this list by framework or service name.

If you prefer a more graphical display, click on the icons on the right side of the screen to switch between a list and “donuts” view of the nodes.

The Masters tab displays information about the masters in the cluster. You can see the leader and non-leaders in the cluster, with their corresponding IP and port, region, version, started time, and elected time.

Clicking on a Host IP opens a Nodes instance page, which provides more information about the node. You can use the Search box or the drop down filter to narrow your list. The Nodes instance page has three tabs: Tasks, Health, and Details. The Tasks tab is displayed by default.
Figure 5 - Tasks tab
The Tasks tab displays the following information:
|ID||Unique identifier for this instance of a service. Consists of the name of the service (for example,
|Name||Unique name of this instance of a service. Consists of a series of words separated by dashes (for example,
|Host||IP address of this node.|
|Zone||Cloud provider zone.|
|Region||Cloud provider region. If left undefined this will run in your local region.|
|Status||The current state of the node.|
|Health||The current health of the node.|
|Logs||Clicking on the “View Logs” icon will open the logs for this instance of the service.|
|CPU||The number of CPU shares allocated to the process.|
|Mem||The amount of memory, in MB, allocated to the process.|
|GPU||Number of GPUs available to this node.|
|Updated||Time, in minutes, since last update.|
A vertical line of dots in the upper right corner opens a menu which allows you to drain or deactivate a node.

For more information on draining nodes, see Draining a Node. For more information on deactivating a node, see the documentation on how to Shut Down and Decomission Nodes.
The Health tab displays the status of your node’s health checks.

You can filter this list using the All Health Checks drop down menu.
