openshift start kubernetes proxy — Launch Kubernetes proxy (kube-proxy)


openshift start kubernetes proxy [Options]


Start Kubernetes Proxy

This command launches an instance of the Kubernetes proxy (kube-proxy).



The IP address for the proxy server to serve on (set to for all interfaces)


If true cleanup iptables rules and exit.


The CIDR range of pods in the cluster. It is used to bridge traffic coming from outside of the cluster. If not provided, no off-cluster bridging will be performed.


How often configuration from the apiserver is refreshed.  Must be greater than 0.


Maximum number of NAT connections to track (0 to leave as-is). This overrides conntrack-max-per-core and conntrack-min.


Maximum number of NAT connections to track per CPU core (0 to leave the limit as-is and ignore conntrack-min).


Minimum number of conntrack entries to allocate, regardless of conntrack-max-per-core (set conntrack-max-per-core=0 to leave the limit as-is).


NAT timeout for TCP connections in the CLOSE_WAIT state


Idle timeout for established TCP connections (0 to leave as-is)


A set of key=value pairs that describe feature gates for alpha/experimental features. Options are: Accelerators=true|false (ALPHA - default=false) AffinityInAnnotations=true|false (ALPHA - default=false) AllAlpha=true|false (ALPHA - default=false) AllowExtTrafficLocalEndpoints=true|false (BETA - default=true) AppArmor=true|false (BETA - default=true) DynamicKubeletConfig=true|false (ALPHA - default=false) DynamicVolumeProvisioning=true|false (ALPHA - default=true) ExperimentalCriticalPodAnnotation=true|false (ALPHA - default=false) ExperimentalHostUserNamespaceDefaulting=true|false (BETA - default=false) StreamingProxyRedirects=true|false (BETA - default=true) TaintBasedEvictions=true|false (ALPHA - default=false)


The IP address for the health check server to serve on, defaulting to (set to for all interfaces)


The port to bind the health check server. Use 0 to disable.


If non-empty, will use this string as identification instead of the actual hostname.


If using the pure iptables proxy, the bit of the fwmark space to mark packets requiring SNAT with.  Must be within the range [0, 31].


The minimum interval of how often the iptables rules can be refreshed as endpoints and services change (e.g. '5s', '1m', '2h22m').


The maximum interval of how often iptables rules are refreshed (e.g. '5s', '1m', '2h22m').  Must be greater than 0.


Burst to use while talking with kubernetes apiserver


Content type of requests sent to apiserver.


QPS to use while talking with kubernetes apiserver


Path to kubeconfig file with authorization information (the master location is set by the master flag).


If using the pure iptables proxy, SNAT everything


The address of the Kubernetes API server (overrides any value in kubeconfig)


The oom-score-adj value for kube-proxy process. Values must be within the range [-1000, 1000]


Which proxy mode to use: 'userspace' (older) or 'iptables' (faster). If blank, use the best-available proxy (currently iptables).  If the iptables proxy is selected, regardless of how, but the system's kernel or iptables versions are insufficient, this always falls back to the userspace proxy.


Range of host ports (beginPort-endPort, inclusive) that may be consumed in order to proxy service traffic. If unspecified (0-0) then ports will be randomly chosen.


Absolute name of the resource-only container to create and run the Kube-proxy in (Default: /kube-proxy).


How long an idle UDP connection will be kept open (e.g. '250ms', '2s').  Must be greater than 0. Only applicable for proxy-mode=userspace

Options Inherited from Parent Commands


Path to the file container Azure container registry configuration information.


The Google Cloud Platform Service Account JSON Key to use for authentication.


Maximum number of seconds between log flushes
