I have a k8s deployment that I update by doing
kubectl apply -f spec.yml. I use the default update strategy.
Whenever I update, new pods get created and the old ones eventually get deleted.
This is what
kubectl get pods looks like a few seconds after calling
NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE server-243710380-7s7g0 1/1 Terminating 0 9m server-243710380-ffzv1 1/1 Terminating 0 9m server-243710380-gfs3h 1/1 Terminating 0 9m server-3561703442-24dxm 1/1 Running 0 13s server-3561703442-7jlds 1/1 Running 0 8s server-3561703442-x5xw1 1/1 Running 0 11s
As you can see, the ones in
Terminating status hang around, typically for about 30 seconds, before really disappearing. This happens despite the new pods reaching
running status within a few seconds.
How can I control the time the old pods remain in
terminating status? Specifically, I want them to terminate as quickly as possible.
