How to use kubernetes livenessProbe, readinessProbe, startupProbe?

GitHub -

Maintaining a healthy Kubernetes cluster is really challenging especially if you have not configured the Liveness, Readiness, and Startup Probes correctly for your containers deployed under Kubernetes containers.

If I have to put it in a simple way -

  1. Liveness probes - It is responsible for restarting your container if it senses a deadlock.
  2. Readiness probes - This probe will tell when the container is ready to start traffic.
  3. Startup probes - It tells when the container application has started.

In this lab session, we are going to see -

  1. What are Kubernetes Probes?
  2. How to create Kubernetes liveness probes?
  3. How to create Kubernetes Readiness probes?
  4. How to create Kubernetes Startup probes?
