PDB, Evictions, Priority Classes: Kubernetes During Rush Hour

Gophers, you filled the event in just 24hrs! Upon many requests, we have extended our number of tickets to make more available just for you. Mark your calendars & sign up while there are still seats available!

Learn how to keep your Kubernetes clusters healthy and your applications happy when their resource usage increases to critical levels.

Discover the difference between “Eviction” and “Preemption”, and how to leverage advanced concepts like “Pod Disruption Budgets”. Glean tidbits of information along the way (like the meaning of that “NOMINATED NODE” column in “kubectl get pods -o wide”).

In this one-hour free webinar, we’ll explore the busy world of Kubernetes when our applications experience periods of peak traffic. We’ll explain how to make sure that critical apps remain up and maintain acceptable levels of performance during planned maintenance as well as unforeseen outages.

During the 1-hour we will cover:

  • Why it’s important to set resource requests and limits
  • The behavior of kubelet when Kubernetes nodes are under pressure
  • Priority classes and scheduling preemption
  • Maintenance operations with the eviction API
  • Q&A

Note: The presentation will include numerous live demos to illustrate all these concepts in real time!
