How to get the best out of KubeAdvisor recommendations

After connecting your cluster Magalix KubeAdvisor starts analyzing your cluster's data. It generates a report and recommendations to improve the cluster at different dimensions, such as performance, reliability, security, cost, etc.

A recommendation is how to fix an issue. Each workload gets its unique recommendation to address a specific reported issue. 

Anatomy of a Recommendation

Each recommendation covers a certain improvement that you can apply to an entity within your cluster. But all recommendations have the same overall structure.

Each recommendation consists of 7 main sections
