kube-controller-manager

Synopsis

The Kubernetes controller manager is a daemon that embeds the core control loops shipped with Kubernetes. In applications of robotics and automation, a control loop is a non-terminating loop that regulates the state of the system. In Kubernetes, a controller is a control loop that watches the shared state of the cluster through the apiserver and makes changes attempting to move the current state towards the desired state. Examples of controllers that ship with Kubernetes today are the replication controller, endpoints controller, namespace controller, and serviceaccounts controller.

Options

      --address ip                                                        DEPRECATED: the IP address on which to listen for the --port port. See --bind-address instead. (default 0.0.0.0)

      --attach-detach-reconcile-sync-period duration                      The reconciler sync wait time between volume attach detach. This duration must be larger than one second, and increasing this value from the default may allow for volumes to be mismatched with pods. (default 1m0s)
