Enabling IPVS for a Cluster
Last updated: 2020-01-02 09:59:55PDF
By default, Kube-proxy uses iptables to balance the load between Service and Pod. TKE supports fast enabling of IPVS-based traffic distributing and load balancing. IPVS is suitable for large-scale clusters by providing better scalability and performance.
- This feature can be enabled only when the cluster is created but not for an existing cluster.
- After enabling, IPVS takes effect for the entire cluster. It is recommended not to manually modify the IPVS in the cluster or use it together with iptables.
- IPVS cannot be disabled once enabled in the cluster.
- IPVS is only available for TKE clusters running Kubernetes v1.10 or higher.
