I’m a big believer in “wrapper scripts”.
I’ve often come across situations where pods won’t die properly. Either the underlying node is in a strange state, temporary networking issues, whatever. If a node has gone south, pods will often stick in an “Evicted” state for example.
It’s time to start writing again.. It’s been awhile..
I’ll start by sharing some tips I’ve learned and scripts I’ve written for dealing with Kubernetes.
