Synopsis

kube-controller-manager [Options]

Description

The Kubernetes controller manager is a daemon that embeds the core control loops shipped with Kubernetes. In applications of robotics and automation, a control loop is a non-terminating loop that regulates the state of the system. In Kubernetes, a controller is a control loop that watches the shared state of the cluster through the apiserver and makes changes attempting to move the current state towards the desired state. Examples of controllers that ship with Kubernetes today are the replication controller, endpoints controller, namespace controller, and serviceaccounts controller.

Options

--allocate-node-cidrs=false Should CIDRs for Pods be allocated and set on the cloud provider.

--allow-metric-labels=[] The map from metric-label to value allow-list of this label. The key's format is ,. The value's format is ,...e.g. metric1,label1='v1,v2,v3', metric1,label2='v1,v2,v3' metric2,label1='v1,v2,v3'.

--allow-metric-labels-manifest="" The path to the manifest file that contains the allow-list mapping. The format of the file is the same as the flag --allow-metric-labels. Note that the flag --allow-metric-labels will override the manifest file.

--allow-untagged-cloud=false Allow the cluster to run without the cluster-id on cloud instances. This is a legacy mode of operation and a cluster-id will be required in the future.

--attach-detach-reconcile-sync-period=1m0s The reconciler sync wait time between volume attach detach. This duration must be larger than one second, and increasing this value from the default may allow for volumes to be mismatched with pods.

--authentication-kubeconfig="" kubeconfig file pointing at the 'core' kubernetes server with enough rights to create tokenreviews.authentication.k8s.io. This is optional. If empty, all token requests are considered to be anonymous and no client CA is looked up in the cluster.

--authentication-skip-lookup=false If false, the authentication-kubeconfig will be used to lookup missing authentication configuration from the cluster.

--authentication-token-webhook-cache-ttl=10s The duration to cache responses from the webhook token authenticator.

--authentication-tolerate-lookup-failure=false If true, failures to look up missing authentication configuration from the cluster are not considered fatal. Note that this can result in authentication that treats all requests as anonymous.

--authorization-always-allow-paths=[/healthz,/readyz,/livez] A list of HTTP paths to skip during authorization, i.e. these are authorized without contacting the 'core' kubernetes server.

--authorization-kubeconfig="" kubeconfig file pointing at the 'core' kubernetes server with enough rights to create subjectaccessreviews.authorization.k8s.io. This is optional. If empty, all requests not skipped by authorization are forbidden.

--authorization-webhook-cache-authorized-ttl=10s The duration to cache 'authorized' responses from the webhook authorizer.

--authorization-webhook-cache-unauthorized-ttl=10s The duration to cache 'unauthorized' responses from the webhook authorizer.

--azure-container-registry-config="" Path to the file containing Azure container registry configuration information.

--bind-address=0.0.0.0 The IP address on which to listen for the --secure-port port. The associated interface(s) must be reachable by the rest of the cluster, and by CLI/web clients. If blank or an unspecified address (0.0.0.0 or ::), all interfaces and IP address families will be used.

--cert-dir="" The directory where the TLS certs are located. If --tls-cert-file and --tls-private-key-file are provided, this flag will be ignored.

--cidr-allocator-type="RangeAllocator" Type of CIDR allocator to use

--client-ca-file="" If set, any request presenting a client certificate signed by one of the authorities in the client-ca-file is authenticated with an identity corresponding to the CommonName of the client certificate.

--permit-address-sharing=false If true, SO_REUSEADDR will be used when binding the port. This allows binding to wildcard IPs like 0.0.0.0 and specific IPs in parallel, and it avoids waiting for the kernel to release sockets in TIME_WAIT state. [default=false]

--permit-port-sharing=false If true, SO_REUSEPORT will be used when binding the port, which allows more than one instance to bind on the same address and port. [default=false]

The purpose of this format is make sure you have the opportunity to notice if the next release hides additional metrics, rather than being surprised when they are permanently removed in the release after that.

--terminated-pod-gc-threshold=12500 Number of terminated pods that can exist before the terminated pod garbage collector starts deleting terminated pods. If <= 0, the terminated pod garbage collector is disabled.

--tls-cert-file="" File containing the default x509 Certificate for HTTPS. (CA cert, if any, concatenated after server cert). If HTTPS serving is enabled, and --tls-cert-file and --tls-private-key-file are not provided, a self-signed certificate and key are generated for the public address and saved to the directory specified by --cert-dir.

--tls-cipher-suites=[] Comma-separated list of cipher suites for the server. If omitted, the default Go cipher suites will be used. Preferred values: TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384, TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256, TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA, TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384, TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305, TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256. Insecure values: TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256, TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256, TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA, TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA, TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA, TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256, TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA, TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384, TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA.

--tls-min-version="" Minimum TLS version supported. Possible values: VersionTLS10, VersionTLS11, VersionTLS12, VersionTLS13

--tls-private-key-file="" File containing the default x509 private key matching --tls-cert-file.

--tls-sni-cert-key=[] A pair of x509 certificate and private key file paths, optionally suffixed with a list of domain patterns which are fully qualified domain names, possibly with prefixed wildcard segments. The domain patterns also allow IP addresses, but IPs should only be used if the apiserver has visibility to the IP address requested by a client. If no domain patterns are provided, the names of the certificate are extracted. Non-wildcard matches trump over wildcard matches, explicit domain patterns trump over extracted names. For multiple key/certificate pairs, use the --tls-sni-cert-key multiple times. Examples: "example.crt,example.key" or "foo.crt,foo.key:*.foo.com,foo.com".

--unhealthy-zone-threshold=0.55 Fraction of Nodes in a zone which needs to be not Ready (minimum 3) for zone to be treated as unhealthy.

--use-service-account-credentials=false If true, use individual service account credentials for each controller.

-v, --v=0 number for the log level verbosity

--version=false --version, --version=raw prints version information and quits; --version=vX.Y.Z... sets the reported version

--vmodule= comma-separated list of pattern=N settings for file-filtered logging (only works for text log format)

--volume-host-allow-local-loopback=true If false, deny local loopback IPs in addition to any CIDR ranges in --volume-host-cidr-denylist

--volume-host-cidr-denylist=[] A comma-separated list of CIDR ranges to avoid from volume plugins.
