At this point we have a fully functioning cluster with a job running in it. We have
learned how to inspect a job using
nomad status, next we'll learn how to inspect
a job in the web client.
Opening the Web UI
As long as Nomad is running, the Nomad UI is also running. It is hosted at the same address
and port as the Nomad HTTP API under the
With Nomad running, visit http://localhost:4646 to open the Nomad UI.
If you're using vagrant and can't connect, it's possible that Vagrant was unable
to properly map the port from your host to the VM. Your
vagrant up output will
contain the new port mapping:
==> default: Fixed port collision for 4646 => 4646. Now on port 2200.
In the case above you would connect to http://localhost:2200 instead.
Inspecting a Job
You should be automatically redirected to
/ui/jobs upon visiting the UI in your browser. This
pages lists all jobs known to Nomad, regardless of status. Click the
example job to inspect it.
The job detail page shows pertinent information about the job, including overall status as well as
allocation statuses broken down by task group. It is similar to the
nomad status CLI command.
Note: You may see a different number of allocations on your node next to
Allocation Status depending on how many times you have stopped and restarted
Click on the
cache task group to drill into the task group detail page. This page lists each allocation
for the task group.
Click on the allocation in the allocations table. This page lists all tasks for an allocation as well
as the recent events for each task. It is similar to the
nomad alloc status command.
The Nomad UI offers a friendly and visual alternative experience to the CLI.
