Revision Notes – Kubernetes Concepts (Container Hooks / Pods)

  • Kubernetes provides containers with following lifecycle hooks:

    • Exec: Executes a specific command, such as pre-stop.sh, inside the cgroups and namespaces of the Container.
    • Http: Executes an HTTP request against a specific endpoint on the Container.
  • Container hook handlers are synchronous
  • Hook handlers are debugged using events broadcasted for both PostStart (FailedPostStartHook) and PreStop (FailedPreStopHook)
  • A pod represents a running process in the cluster
  • A pod encapsulates some of the following:
    • One or more containers
    • Storage resources
    • Network IP
  • A Pod supports the following container runtime
    • Docker
    • rkt
  • Pods provide the following two kinds of shared resources for their constituent containers:
    • Networking

  • Each Pod is assigned a unique IP address.
  • A pod can not self-heal. It is the controller that handles the work of managing the relatively disposable Pod instances.
