Does the visual management tool TiUniManager support the management of TiDB clusters installed on Kubernetes?

But I see in the TiUniManager installation documentation that installation requires a control machine and the TiUP component.

Can a cluster deployed with k8s also use a control machine to install and manage TiUniManager? Is there any implementation documentation?

Operator deployment in a Kubernetes environment cannot use TiUniManager.

Can TiDB 8 be deployed in a Kubernetes environment using tiup? Is there any implementation documentation? I see that the documentation mentions using Operator for deployment and maintenance in k8s.

Kubernetes can also be used as a VM, but it may not be as convenient as a physical machine. I hope to automate the CI process on the cloud and even make it into a web page.

I looked at the official documentation, and the general meaning is:
TiDB clusters deployed on Kubernetes must be deployed and maintained using the Operator, and the Operator is for command management and does not support management by TiUniManager.

Your response doesn’t seem right. According to the official documentation, it doesn’t support k8s, and on k8s, it’s all done through Operator commands. I also haven’t seen how to deploy TiUniManager on k8s; TiUniManager is installed using tiup.

So I have another question: Can the DM cluster deployed on k8s be managed visually using DM-WebUI?

Hello, DM-WebUI comes with DM Master. Once you deploy it, you can access it naturally, regardless of where it is deployed. If you have deployed it on k8s, you can use it directly.
