"Those that know, do. Those that understand, teach."

Aristoteles (supposedly)

Scope: Building and running web-scale distributed cloud systems with container technologies :P

Learning goals

  • Establish the challenges for engineering cloud-native systems (the problem space).
  • Establish the approaches to address those challenges (the solution space).

Annoying Kubernetes Issues
View README.md

kubectl logs has quirks due to log-rotation

kubectl logs does not take into account container log rotation (kubelet config containerLogMaxSize and containerLogMaxFiles). You can still find the latest rotated logs in /var/log/pods/<namespace>_<pod-name>_<pod-uid>/ though.

Don’t assume --since=0s will have all logs since the container started because it won't look into previous log files. Don't assume a long-running --follow will always give you latest logs, because it will not switch over to the new log after current is rotated.

See: kubernetes/kubernetes#59902

KUBECONFIG is not portable

Building tor on WD My Cloud EX2
View instructions.md

How to build tor for WD My Cloud EX2

WD My Cloud EX2 has an Marvell Armada-370 CPU (Marvell PJ4Bv7 Processor rev 1 (v7l)) with 512MB RAM.

This device uses 32-bit binaries with 64K page size. WD releases a cross-compilation environment as part of its "WD My Cloud EX2 GPL Source Code". Download it from WD support page (making sure it matches your firmware version) and follow the instructions in My_Cloud_EX2_Release_Notes_GPL_*.txt to setup the environment. I recommend using a Debian OS.

The following packages are required to use the cross-compilation environment: build-essential automake lib32z1
