Kubelet Configuration (v1beta1)
CredentialProviderConfig is the configuration containing information about each exec credential provider. Kubelet reads this configuration from disk and enables each provider as specified by the CredentialProvider type.
providers is a list of credential provider plugins that will be enabled by the kubelet. Multiple providers may match against a single image, in which case credentials from all providers will be returned to the kubelet. If multiple providers are called for a single image, the results are combined. If providers return overlapping auth keys, the value from the provider earlier in this list is used.
KubeletConfiguration contains the configuration for the Kubelet
enableServer enables Kubelet's secured server. Note: Kubelet's insecure port is controlled by the readOnlyPort option. Default: true

rotateCertificates enables client certificate rotation. The Kubelet will request a new certificate from the certificates.k8s.io API. This requires an approver to approve the certificate signing requests. Default: false
serverTLSBootstrap enables server certificate bootstrap. Instead of self signing a serving certificate, the Kubelet will request a certificate from the 'certificates.k8s.io' API. This requires an approver to approve the certificate signing requests (CSR). The RotateKubeletServerCertificate feature must be enabled when setting this field. Default: false
authentication specifies how requests to the Kubelet's server are authenticated.
authorization specifies how requests to the Kubelet's server are authorized. Defaults: mode: Webhook webhook: cacheAuthorizedTTL: "5m" cacheUnauthorizedTTL: "30s"

nodeStatusUpdateFrequency is the frequency that kubelet computes node status. If node lease feature is not enabled, it is also the frequency that kubelet posts node status to master. Note: When node lease feature is not enabled, be cautious when changing the constant, it must work with nodeMonitorGracePeriod in nodecontroller. Default: "10s"
nodeStatusReportFrequency is the frequency that kubelet posts node status to master if node status does not change. Kubelet will ignore this frequency and post node status immediately if any change is detected. It is only used when node lease feature is enabled. nodeStatusReportFrequency's default value is 5m. But if nodeStatusUpdateFrequency is set explicitly, nodeStatusReportFrequency's default value will be set to nodeStatusUpdateFrequency for backward compatibility. Default: "5m"
nodeLeaseDurationSeconds is the duration the Kubelet will set on its corresponding Lease. NodeLease provides an indicator of node health by having the Kubelet create and periodically renew a lease, named after the node, in the kube-node-lease namespace. If the lease expires, the node can be considered unhealthy. The lease is currently renewed every 10s, per KEP-0009. In the future, the lease renewal interval may be set based on the lease duration. The field value must be greater than 0. Default: 40
imageMinimumGCAge is the minimum age for an unused image before it is garbage collected. Default: "2m"
imageGCHighThresholdPercent is the percent of disk usage after which image garbage collection is always run. The percent is calculated by dividing this field value by 100, so this field must be between 0 and 100, inclusive. When specified, the value must be greater than imageGCLowThresholdPercent. Default: 85
imageGCLowThresholdPercent is the percent of disk usage before which image garbage collection is never run. Lowest disk usage to garbage collect to.

cgroupRoot is the root cgroup to use for pods. This is handled by the container runtime on a best effort basis.
cgroupsPerQOS enable QoS based CGroup hierarchy: top level CGroups for QoS classes and all Burstable and BestEffort Pods are brought up under their specific top level QoS CGroup. Default: true
cgroupDriver is the driver kubelet uses to manipulate CGroups on the host (cgroupfs or systemd). Default: "cgroupfs"
cpuManagerPolicy is the name of the policy to use. Requires the CPUManager feature gate to be enabled. Default: "none"
cpuManagerPolicyOptions is a set of key=value which allows to set extra options to fine tune the behaviour of the cpu manager policies. Requires both the "CPUManager" and "CPUManagerPolicyOptions" feature gates to be enabled. Default: nil

cpuCFSQuota enables CPU CFS quota enforcement for containers that specify CPU limits. Default: true
cpuCFSQuotaPeriod is the CPU CFS quota period value,
nodeStatusMaxImages caps the number of images reported in Node.status.images. The value must be greater than -2. Note: If -1 is specified, no cap will be applied. If 0 is specified, no image is returned. Default: 50

periods for each soft eviction signal. For example:
evictionPressureTransitionPeriod is the duration for which the kubelet has to wait before transitioning out of an eviction pressure condition. Default: "5m"
evictionMaxPodGracePeriod is the maximum allowed grace period (in seconds) to use when terminating pods in response to a soft eviction threshold being met. This value effectively caps the Pod's terminationGracePeriodSeconds value during soft evictions. Note: Due to issue #64530, the behavior has a bug where this value currently just overrides the grace period during soft eviction, which can increase the grace period from what is set on the Pod. This bug will be fixed in a future release. Default: 0
evictionMinimumReclaim is a map of signal names to quantities that defines minimum reclaims,
which describe the minimum amount of a given resource the kubelet will reclaim when
performing a pod eviction while that resource is under pressure.
podsPerCore is the maximum number of pods per core. Cannot exceed maxPods. The value must be a non-negative integer. If 0, there is no limit on the number of Pods. Default: 0
enableControllerAttachDetach enables the Attach/Detach controller to manage attachment/detachment of volumes scheduled to this node, and disables kubelet from executing any attach/detach operations. Note: attaching/detaching CSI volumes is not supported by the kubelet, so this option needs to be true for that use case. Default: true
protectKernelDefaults, if true, causes the Kubelet to error if kernel flags are not as it expects. Otherwise the Kubelet will attempt to modify kernel flags to match its expectation. Default: false
makeIPTablesUtilChains, if true, causes the Kubelet ensures a set of iptables rules are present on host. These rules will serve as utility rules for various components, e.g. kube-proxy. The rules will be created based on iptablesMasqueradeBit and iptablesDropBit. Default: true
iptablesMasqueradeBit is the bit of the iptables fwmark space to mark for SNAT. Values must be within the range [0, 31]. Must be different from other mark bits. Warning: Please match the value of the corresponding parameter in kube-proxy. TODO: clean up IPTablesMasqueradeBit in kube-proxy. Default: 14

featureGates is a map of feature names to bools that enable or disable experimental features. This field modifies piecemeal the built-in default values from "k8s.io/kubernetes/pkg/features/kube_features.go". Default: nil
failSwapOn tells the Kubelet to fail to start if swap is enabled on the node. Default: true
memorySwap configures swap memory available to container workloads.
containerLogMaxSize is a quantity defining the maximum size of the container log file before it is rotated. For example: "5Mi" or "256Ki". Default: "10Mi"
containerLogMaxFiles specifies the maximum number of container log files that can be present for a container. Default: 5
configMapAndSecretChangeDetectionStrategy is a mode in which ConfigMap and Secret managers are running. Valid values include:
systemReserved is a set of ResourceName=ResourceQuantity (e.g. cpu=200m,memory=150G) pairs that describe resources reserved for non-kubernetes components. Currently only cpu and memory are supported. See http://kubernetes.io/docs/user-guide/compute-resources for more detail. Default: nil
kubeReserved is a set of ResourceName=ResourceQuantity (e.g. cpu=200m,memory=150G) pairs that describe resources reserved for kubernetes system components. Currently cpu, memory and local storage for root file system are supported. See https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/configuration/manage-resources-containers/ for more details. Default: nil
The reservedSystemCPUs option specifies the CPU list reserved for the host level system threads and kubernetes related threads. This provide a "static" CPU list rather than the "dynamic" list by systemReserved and kubeReserved. This option does not support systemReservedCgroup or kubeReservedCgroup.
showHiddenMetricsForVersion is the previous version for which you want to show
Only the previous minor version is meaningful, other values will not be allowed.
The format is
systemReservedCgroup helps the kubelet identify absolute name of top level CGroup used
kubeReservedCgroup helps the kubelet identify absolute name of top level CGroup used
This flag specifies the various Node Allocatable enforcements that Kubelet needs to perform.
This flag accepts a list of options. Acceptable options are
A comma separated whitelist of unsafe sysctls or sysctl patterns (ending in
volumePluginDir is the full path of the directory in which to search for additional third party volume plugins. Default: "/usr/libexec/kubernetes/kubelet-plugins/volume/exec/"
providerID, if set, sets the unique ID of the instance that an external provider (i.e. cloudprovider) can use to identify a specific node. Default: ""
kernelMemcgNotification, if set, instructs the kubelet to integrate with the kernel memcg notification for determining if memory eviction thresholds are exceeded rather than polling. Default: false
logging specifies the options of logging. Refer to Logs Options for more information. Default: Format: text
enableSystemLogHandler enables system logs via web interface host:port/logs/ Default: true
enableSystemLogQuery enables the node log query feature on the /logs endpoint. EnableSystemLogHandler has to be enabled in addition for this feature to work. Default: false
shutdownGracePeriod specifies the total duration that the node should delay the shutdown and total grace period for pod termination during a node shutdown. Default: "0s"
shutdownGracePeriodCriticalPods specifies the duration used to terminate critical pods during a node shutdown. This should be less than shutdownGracePeriod. For example, if shutdownGracePeriod=30s, and shutdownGracePeriodCriticalPods=10s, during a node shutdown the first 20 seconds would be reserved for gracefully terminating normal pods, and the last 10 seconds would be reserved for terminating critical pods. Default: "0s"
shutdownGracePeriodByPodPriority specifies the shutdown grace period for Pods based on their associated priority class value. When a shutdown request is received, the Kubelet will initiate shutdown on all pods running on the node with a grace period that depends on the priority of the pod, and then wait for all pods to exit. Each entry in the array represents the graceful shutdown time a pod with a priority class value that lies in the range of that value and the next higher entry in the list when the node is shutting down. For example, to allow critical pods 10s to shutdown, priority>=10000 pods 20s to shutdown, and all remaining pods 30s to shutdown.
The time the Kubelet will wait before exiting will at most be the maximum of all shutdownGracePeriodSeconds for each priority class range represented on the node. When all pods have exited or reached their grace periods, the Kubelet will release the shutdown inhibit lock. Requires the GracefulNodeShutdown feature gate to be enabled. This configuration must be empty if either ShutdownGracePeriod or ShutdownGracePeriodCriticalPods is set. Default: nil
reservedMemory specifies a comma-separated list of memory reservations for NUMA nodes. The parameter makes sense only in the context of the memory manager feature. The memory manager will not allocate reserved memory for container workloads. For example, if you have a NUMA0 with 10Gi of memory and the reservedMemory was specified to reserve 1Gi of memory at NUMA0, the memory manager will assume that only 9Gi is available for allocation. You can specify a different amount of NUMA node and memory types. You can omit this parameter at all, but you should be aware that the amount of reserved memory from all NUMA nodes should be equal to the amount of memory specified by the node allocatable. If at least one node allocatable parameter has a non-zero value, you will need to specify at least one NUMA node. Also, avoid specifying:
enableProfilingHandler enables profiling via web interface host:port/debug/pprof/ Default: true
enableDebugFlagsHandler enables flags endpoint via web interface host:port/debug/flags/v Default: true
SeccompDefault enables the use of
MemoryThrottlingFactor specifies the factor multiplied by the memory limit or node allocatable memory when setting the cgroupv2 memory.high value to enforce MemoryQoS. Decreasing this factor will set lower high limit for container cgroups and put heavier reclaim pressure while increasing will put less reclaim pressure. See https://kep.k8s.io/2570 for more details. Default: 0.9
registerWithTaints are an array of taints to add to a node object when the kubelet registers itself. This only takes effect when registerNode is true and upon the initial registration of the node. Default: nil
registerNode enables automatic registration with the apiserver. Default: true
Tracing specifies the versioned configuration for OpenTelemetry tracing clients. See https://kep.k8s.io/2832 for more details. Default: nil
LocalStorageCapacityIsolation enables local ephemeral storage isolation feature. The default setting is true. This feature allows users to set request/limit for container's ephemeral storage and manage it in a similar way as cpu and memory. It also allows setting sizeLimit for emptyDir volume, which will trigger pod eviction if disk usage from the volume exceeds the limit. This feature depends on the capability of detecting correct root file system disk usage. For certain systems, such as kind rootless, if this capability cannot be supported, the feature LocalStorageCapacityIsolation should be disabled. Once disabled, user should not set request/limit for container's ephemeral storage, or sizeLimit for emptyDir. Default: true
ContainerRuntimeEndpoint is the endpoint of container runtime. Unix Domain Sockets are supported on Linux, while npipe and tcp endpoints are supported on Windows. Examples:'unix:///path/to/runtime.sock', 'npipe:////./pipe/runtime'
ImageServiceEndpoint is the endpoint of container image service. Unix Domain Socket are supported on Linux, while npipe and tcp endpoints are supported on Windows. Examples:'unix:///path/to/runtime.sock', 'npipe:////./pipe/runtime'. If not specified, the value in containerRuntimeEndpoint is used.
SerializedNodeConfigSource allows us to serialize v1.NodeConfigSource. This type is used internally by the Kubelet for tracking checkpointed dynamic configs. It exists in the kubeletconfig API group because it is classified as a versioned input to the Kubelet.
source is the source that we are serializing.
CredentialProvider represents an exec plugin to be invoked by the kubelet. The plugin is only invoked when an image being pulled matches the images handled by the plugin (see matchImages).
name is the required name of the credential provider. It must match the name of the provider executable as seen by the kubelet. The executable must be in the kubelet's bin directory (set by the --image-credential-provider-bin-dir flag).
matchImages is a required list of strings used to match against images in order to determine if this provider should be invoked. If one of the strings matches the requested image from the kubelet, the plugin will be invoked and given a chance to provide credentials. Images are expected to contain the registry domain and URL path.
Each entry in matchImages is a pattern which can optionally contain a port and a path.
Globs can be used in the domain, but not in the port or the path. Globs are supported
as subdomains like
A match exists between an image and a matchImage when all of the below are true:
Example values of matchImages:
defaultCacheDuration is the default duration the plugin will cache credentials in-memory if a cache duration is not provided in the plugin response. This field is required.
Required input version of the exec CredentialProviderRequest. The returned CredentialProviderResponse MUST use the same encoding version as the input. Current supported values are:
Arguments to pass to the command when executing it.
Env defines additional environment variables to expose to the process. These are unioned with the host's environment, as well as variables client-go uses to pass argument to the plugin.
ExecEnvVar is used for setting environment variables when executing an exec-based credential plugin.
