• The pod might be in running state but application inside it might still be loading

  • Here pod is not truly said to be "ready to use"

  • So we use different probes to tie "ready" conditions of pod to the actual statu of application

  • Type:

    1. HTTP yaml readineProbe: httpGet: path: /api/ready port: 8080

    2. TCP Socket yaml readineProbe: tcpSocket: port: 3306

    3. Exec Command yaml readinesProbe: exec: command: - cat - /app/is -r

  • LivenesProbe: This probe help u to verify if the application running in container is healthy

  • ReadinesProbe: This probe helps u to keep pod on hold until the application i ready to be used


k logs -f <pod_name> <container_name>
