Doing more with Run:ai’s APIs

Run:ai 2.17 delivers major improvement to telemetry consumption with the release of a new API and metrics service. This new offering provides a more comprehensive and user-friendly way to access and analyze telemetry data, making it easier for teams to gain insights into the performance and behavior of your applications.

The new API provides a RESTful interface that allows users to programmatically access telemetry data, which can be integrated with other applications and tools for a more comprehensive view. The metrics service provides a collection of pre-built dashboards and reports that allow quick and easy visualization. The combination of the new API and metrics service simplifies the process of identifying data trends and patterns enabling teams to make informed decisions about their applications.

Use Cases and Examples

Build custom dashboards

With the new APIs teams can create customized dashboards, tailored to their needs. Use the different telemetry and metrics to create dashboards that will help you use Run:ai better. We’ve created the new Overview dashboard in the app using the new APIs to help you get started. Try the following endpoints

  • /cluster/metrics
  • /nodepools/metrics
  • /workloads/telemetry

Check your resources' availability

Using the /nodes/telemetry endpoint you can monitor your free nodes availability and smartly plan the scheduling of large workloads.

Monitor your workload

Dashboards give the bigger picture, but sometimes you want to monitor a specific workload that is of importance to you. Try the following endpoints;

  • /workloads/{workloadId}/metrics 
  • /workloads/{workloadId}/pods/{podId}/metrics

These new features will help you improve your productivity and make better decisions about your applications. We encourage you to try out the new API and metrics service and let us know what you think.
