This document introduces the basics of Tencent Kubernetes Engine (TKE) and answers questions you may encounter when using TKE to help you quickly get started with TKE.
Can I use TKE in a basic network?
No. Currently, you can use TKE in a VPC instance but not a basic network.
How do I use TKE?
Create a cluster and then create a service. For more information, see Examples.
Can I add an existing CVM to a cluster?
Yes. After a cluster is created, you can add existing CVMs to it.
Why does my service keep starting?
If there is no process running in the container, the service may keep starting. For more information on service startup, see Event FAQs.
How do I access a created service?
Different access methods have different access entries.
**How does a container access the public network?
If the host where the container resides has a public IP address and public network bandwidth, the container can access the public network directly. Otherwise, a NAT gateway is required for accessing the public network.
How do I manage configuration files or environment variables for my services?
You can manage configuration files by editing configuration items.
How do different services access one another?
In a cluster, services with the same namespace can directly access one another, whereas services with different namespaces access one another by using <service-name>.<namespace-name>.svc.cluster.local.
What are the differences between ingress and "Public Network Access"?
Ingress is a collection of rules to route external HTTP(S) traffic to services, and is not directly related to "Public Network Access".
Can my stateful service have a disk to rely on?
Yes. You can mount data disks to a container by mounting CBS data volumes.
Will my service be interrupted when I run an update?
No. Services can be updated in rolling update or quick update mode. Your service is not interrupted in rolling update mode.
