Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that helps manage and deploy applications in a cloud environment. It is used to automate the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It is an efficient way to manage application health with Kubernetes probes. This article will discuss Kubernetes probes, the different types available, and how to implement them in your Kubernetes environment.
What Are Kubernetes Probes?
Kubernetes probes are health checks that are used to monitor the health of applications and services in a Kubernetes cluster. They are used to detect any potential problems with applications or services and identify potential resource bottlenecks. Probes are configured to run at regular intervals and send a signal to the Kubernetes control plane if they detect any issues with the application or service.
