      --leader-elect                             Start a leader election client and gain leadership before executing the main loop. Enable this when running replicated components for high availability. (default true)
      --leader-elect-lease-duration duration     The duration that non-leader candidates will wait after observing a leadership renewal until attempting to acquire leadership of a led but unrenewed leader slot.
