In the Salad Cloud Portal, you're able to see your deployments for each project on the Container Deployments List page. This page shows a high-level view for each of the container groups within the project, including:
- Name of the deployment
- Date created
- Deployment status (Preparing, Stopped, Deploying, Running, Failed)
- Replicas running
- Networking details
- Image source
- Allocated resources (total desired replica count and vCPUs, RAM and GPU(s) allocated to each replica)
Click on any of your deployments to drill down to the Container Deployment Detail page. From here, you can start, stop, and delete your deployment, as well as edit the replica count and the display name of the container deployment.
On this page, you can also see a table of all instances of your container that have been allocated, are running, stopping, or failed. You can also manage these instances by clicking the action button next to an entry in the list of running instances.
You can perform the following actions:
Restart a container instance Occasionally, a workload may run for awhile on your node and then some part of the application might hang. In these cases, it's typically faster to get back up and running by restarting the container on the same node, rather than searching for a new one. The Restart option allows you to restart your container on the node, with all settings and downloaded data intact.
Recreate a container instance For a harder reset, the Recreate option allows you to rebuild the container from scratch on the node. These features are accessible from the actions dropdown next to each node on the container group detail page.
Reallocate a container instance - If a workload fails to run, Salad will automatically reallocate your container to a new node that matches the requirements you specified. However, in some rare cases, a node has trouble running a container replica but doesn't outright fail. If this happens, it's helpful to be able to manually trigger a reallocation of the workload to a new node.
Inside the "Edit" option on the Managing Deployments page in Salad, you have the flexibility to modify key parameters of your container group deployment. You can change the display name to make deployments more descriptive and easily identifiable, and you can also adjust the replica count to scale your application up or down as needed.
One valuable feature of this editing capability is the real-time update of the predicted cost associated with your changes. To access the editing options for your container group deployment, simply navigate to the Salad dashboard, locate your deployment, and select the "Edit" option.
