kubelet

Synopsis

The kubelet is the primary "node agent" that runs on each node. It can register the node with the apiserver using one of: the hostname; a flag to override the hostname; or specific logic for a cloud provider.

The kubelet works in terms of a PodSpec. A PodSpec is a YAML or JSON object that describes a pod. The kubelet takes a set of PodSpecs that are provided through various mechanisms (primarily through the apiserver) and ensures that the containers described in those PodSpecs are running and healthy. The kubelet doesn't manage containers which were not created by Kubernetes.

Other than from a PodSpec from the apiserver, there are three ways that a container manifest can be provided to the Kubelet.

File: Path passed as a flag on the command line. Files under this path will be monitored periodically for updates. The monitoring period is 20s by default and is configurable via a flag.

HTTP endpoint: HTTP endpoint passed as a parameter on the command line. This endpoint is checked every 20 seconds (also configurable with a flag).

HTTP server: The kubelet can also listen for HTTP and respond to a simple API (underspec'd currently) to submit a new manifest.

If true, adds the file directory to the header of the log messages
--address ip     Default: 0.0.0.0
The IP address for the Kubelet to serve on (set to `0.0.0.0` for all IPv4 interfaces and `::` for all IPv6 interfaces) (DEPRECATED: This parameter should be set via the config file specified by the Kubelet's `--config` flag. See https://kubernetes.io/docs/tasks/administer-cluster/kubelet-config-file/ for more information.)

Comma-separated whitelist of unsafe sysctls or unsafe sysctl patterns (ending in `*`). Use these at your own risk. (DEPRECATED: This parameter should be set via the config file specified by the Kubelet's `--config` flag.

See https://kubernetes.io/docs/tasks/administer-cluster/kubelet-config-file/ for more information.)
--application-metrics-count-limit int     Default: 100
Max number of application metrics to store (per container) (DEPRECATED: This is a cadvisor flag that was mistakenly registered with the Kubelet. Due to legacy concerns,it will follow the standard CLI deprecation timeline before being removed.)
--authentication-token-webhook

The client certificate and key file will be stored in the directory pointed by `--cert-dir`.
--cert-dir string     Default: `/var/lib/kubelet/pki`
