IT ops and software reliability engineers (SREs) can use this tab to quickly find a service’s underlying infrastructure resources when debugging a problem. Knowing what infrastructure is related to a service allows you to remediate issues by restarting, killing hanging instances, changing configuration, rolling back deployments, scaling up, scaling out, and so on.
