Kubernetes is a powerful tool when it comes to keeping your containers running. It can automatically manage the process of restarting containers when they fail, and it can also manage network traffic to ensure only healthy and running containers are used to serve incoming requests. One way to gain even more control over these kinds of automation is through the use of liveness and readiness probes. In this lab, you will have the opportunity to work with liveness and readiness probes by configuring them for a pod.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
