Kubernetes Horizontal Pod Autoscaler

Kubernetes Horizontal Pod Autoscaler

This post just serves as a quickstart for kubernetes horizontal pod autosacler testing purpose, here are the steps

git clone https://github.com/Azure-Samples/azure-voting-app-redis.git
cd azure-voting-app-redis
kubectl apply -f azure-vote-all-in-one-redis.yaml
kubectl autoscale deployment azure-vote-front --cpu-percent=10 --min=1 --max=10

After finish above commands, you should have hpa configured, now we need to generate some workload, here are the steps

kubectl run -i --tty busybox --image=busybox /bin/sh

From the busybox, type below command to generate workload

while true; do wget -q -O- http://azure-vote-front; done

Wait for a while, you will see hpa works now and autoscales pod instances.

kubectl get hpa
