Kubernetes faster node failure detection

Hi,

I’d like to get kubernetes to detect failed nodes and recover faster by using the parameters outlined here: https://fatalfailure.wordpress.com/2016/06/10/improving-kubernetes-reliability-quicker-detection-of-a-node-down/. Namely, the article says:

kubelet: node-status-update-frequency=4s (from 10s)

controller-manager: node-monitor-period=2s (from 5s)
controller-manager: node-monitor-grace-period=16s (from 40s)
controller-manager: pod-eviction-timeout=30s (from 5m)

Is there a way with a rancher-based kubernetes installation to pass these parameters to the relevant components?

TIA for any help

Hi,

You can create your own template to do this or modify the existing.

Please have a look to the docker-compose.yaml file you will get it :wink:

controller-manager:
command:
- kube-controller-manager
- --master=https://kubernetes.kubernetes.rancher.internal:6443
- --cloud-provider=${CLOUD_PROVIDER}
- --address=0.0.0.0
- --kubeconfig=/etc/kubernetes/ssl/kubeconfig
- --root-ca-file=/etc/kubernetes/ssl/ca.pem
- --service-account-private-key-file=/etc/kubernetes/ssl/key.pem
image: rancher/k8s:v1.5.1-rancher1-7
labels:
io.rancher.scheduler.affinity:host_label_soft: orchestration=true
io.rancher.container.create_agent: "true"
io.rancher.container.agent.role: environmentAdmin

Thanks for your answer, I now see where I should look.
