Liveness probe failed:
So looks like it failed a Liveness check and was killed by kubelet. Are there any logs about
liveness
?
(sorry, got liveness and readiness confused)

Yes, that's what I'm wondering too. Are there any logs from the pod with
liveness
or
readiness
in them?
Are you running calico-node with a CPU limit?
Do kubelet logs show the error message from the failures?

Deadline Exceeded
is the error. i.e. it tried to run the Liveness command in the calico-node pod, but it failed to return within the deadline. Is your system heavily loaded (any free CPU)? How large is it? How many pods per node? How many nodes?

137 pods on this node? Or on the cluster?

just on this node

12/21/2022, 1:37 PM
And how much CPU is in use?
(i.e can you run
top
on the node itself?)
FWIW 137 pods per node is higher than the default k8s limit (110 pods per node). But I wouldn't expect calico-node to have trouble with 137.

Current Load average is 18.99. Does this box have more than 19 CPUs?
If not, then I'd say that this node is overloaded and calico-node is unable to get the CPU it needs to respond to kubelet fast enough to not get killed.

https://www.brendangregg.com/blog/2017-08-08/linux-load-averages.html
Linux load averages are "system load averages" that show the running thread (task) demand on the system as an average number of running plus waiting threads. This measures demand, which can be greater than what the system is currently processing. Most tools show three averages, for 1, 5, and 15 minutes:
Some interpretations:
β€’ If the averages are 0.0, then your system is idle.
β€’ If the 1 minute average is higher than the 5 or 15 minute averages, then load is increasing.
β€’ If the 1 minute average is lower than the 5 or 15 minute averages, then load is decreasing.
β€’ If they are higher than your CPU count, then you might have a performance problem (it depends).
Load average is how many threads are asking for CPU time (averaged over the period). If its 20 and you have 8 CPUs, then its saying that 12 threads were waiting (on average)
βœ… 1

12/21/2022, 1:52 PM
oh, tks for useful knowledge
do you think this load average (about 30 as I observe) is too high in this situation?
g

great-jewelry-76121

12/21/2022, 1:59 PM
Yes. If calico-node doesn't get CPU in time to respond to Liveness checks, it will get restarted. Options: β€’ put CPU limits on pods on this node. β€’ put fewer pods on this node - which may mean adding more nodes to the cluster Be a little careful about putting CPU requests and limits on calico-node. calico-node CPU usage is very bursty - it does a lot of work when it is starting up (loading the state of the node) or when pods are created or deleted, very little at other times. If you set the limit too low, it may not start up fast enough, and kubelet will then kill it, causing it to start up again - basically a self-induced crashloop!

If you're going to set resource requests and limits, have a read of the k8s docs on the subject: https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/configuration/manage-resources-containers/ As above, its easy to cause problems by poor request/limit choices

hi @great-jewelry-76121, now, I cannot reduce the load average so I decided to increase the timeoutSeconds within the calico-node daemonset (from 1 second to 10 seconds) the restarting phenomenon stopped but the liveness probe + readiness probe failed events still happen. Does it mean 10 seconds timeout wasn't enough for probe?
g

Looking at https://docs.projectcalico.org/manifests/calico.yaml, I see the liveness/readiness sections say:
livenessProbe:
            exec:
              command:
              - /bin/calico-node
              - -felix-live
              - -bird-live
            periodSeconds: 10
            initialDelaySeconds: 10
            failureThreshold: 6
            timeoutSeconds: 10
          readinessProbe:
            exec:
              command:
              - /bin/calico-node
              - -felix-ready
              - -bird-ready
            periodSeconds: 10
            timeoutSeconds: 10
i.e. it shouldn't have been set to 1 second anyway.
Does it mean 10 seconds timeout wasn't enough for probe?
Yes, assuming that the restart was due to Liveness.
Are the restarts actually causing you a problem? calico-node isn't on the datapath anyway (it just sets up networking by programming the kernel).

I haven't met any critical problems, but my API gateway daemonset also was restarted and the pod is in the same with restarted calico-node
As I know, calico-node uses iptables to route so what calico's components attend to the datapath?
I think rke config timeoutSeconds: 1 by default 😞

The calico-node pod: β€’ installs the CNI plugin, which networks pods when they are created, and cleans up when they are deleted β€’ updates iptables rules on the node to implement network policy
