Kubernetes - A Complete DevOps Cookbook

By: Murat Karslioglu

Overview of this book

Kubernetes is a popular open source orchestration platform for managing containers in a cluster environment. With this Kubernetes cookbook, you’ll learn how to implement Kubernetes using a recipe-based approach. The book will prepare you to create highly available Kubernetes clusters on multiple clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Azure, Alibaba, and on-premises data centers. Starting with recipes for installing and configuring Kubernetes instances, you’ll discover how to work with Kubernetes clients, services, and key metadata. You’ll then learn how to build continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines for your applications, and understand various methods to manage containers. As you advance, you’ll delve into Kubernetes' integration with Docker and Jenkins, and even perform a batch process and configure data volumes. You’ll get to grips with methods for scaling, security, monitoring, logging, and troubleshooting. Additionally, this book will take you through the latest updates in Kubernetes, including volume snapshots, creating high availability clusters with kops, running workload operators, new inclusions around kubectl and more. By the end of this book, you’ll have developed the skills required to implement Kubernetes in production and manage containers proficiently.

Inspecting containers

In this section, we will troubleshoot problems related to pods stuck in Pending, ImagePullBackOff, or CrashLoopBackOff states. You will learn how to inspect and debug pods that are having deployment problems in Kubernetes.

Getting ready

Make sure you have a Kubernetes cluster ready and kubectl configured to manage the cluster resources.

How to do it…

This section is further divided into the following subsections to make the process easier:

  • Inspecting pods in Pending status
  • Inspecting pods in ImagePullBackOff status
  • Inspecting pods in CrashLoopBackOff status

Inspecting pods in Pending status

When you deploy applications on Kubernetes, it is inevitable that soon or later you will need to get more information on your application. In this recipe, we will learn to inspect common pods problem of pods stuck in Pending status:
