Hello,
Are these images k8s.gcr.io/goproxy:0.1 and k8s.gcr.io/liveness we can see at https://v1-17.docs.kubernetes.io/docs/tasks/configure-pod-container/configure-liveness-readiness-startup-probes/ nginx servers images we can use during exam? All we have to do is to use yaml files available there?

Thank you in advance!
Stefan

    What the line "- /server" means at yaml https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes/website/master/content/en/examples/pods/probe/http-liveness.yaml ?
    If I add lines "args:- /server" with nginx alpine image the container wont start due to daemon error:

    Error: failed to start container "webserver": Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:349: starting container process caused "exec: \"/server\": stat /server: no such file or directory": unknown

  • Hi Stefan,

    This is related to how containers work. That is an argument passed to the liveness container. The reason that the same argument crashes the nginx container is purely because the nginx container does not accept the same argument, but may work with other arguments instead.

    Can you shortly describe please how this argument works in the given yaml example, it will help me better understand what happens under the hood. Is this argument parsed by docker during container creation? Or by nginx server after creation?

    Thank you.

  • In order to understand containers and what they do, I recommend taking an intro course in containers, or exploring the Docker documentation - more specifically the Dockerfile, the docker build, and docker run commands.
