Learnk8s Lab: How does the Kubernetes Scheduler work?


The Kubernetes scheduler is a core component of the control-plane. It is in charge of deciding where the Pods are placed in your cluster.  You can think about the Kubernetes scheduler as a skilled Tetris player that always tries to optimize the placement of your containers.  But how does it decide what is the *best* node?  Does it prioritize big Nodes or smaller ones?  Can you help the scheduler decide?

 In this talk, you will:

  • Dive into the internals of the Kubernetes scheduler and discover how Nodes are filters and scored before they are assigned to Pods.
  • Learn what are the tools at your disposal if you want to influence the scheduler such as nodeSelector, node affinity, pod affinity, and taints and tolerations.
