Maybe look at what pods you have running that would be making a ton of requests to the apiserver? There are no significant errors or warnings?

lots of errors timing out hitting the API server.
I think i sort of figured it out. Seems like the instance was resource starved. Strange because I didn't add anything new recently... but I think once things started failing a bunch of stuff was crashing and using more than normal resources upon startup which was causing other things to crash and so on

if you are running with swap and don’t have any memory limits on pods, you can definitely push things to the point where the performance becomes pathological
best practice is to turn off swap, but k3s lets you use it because it can be necessary on some smaller systems

🤔 honestly don't know if I have swap setup. I'll check on that. Thanks for the tip
