kubernetes plugin - monitoring definition, bug?

L0 Member

Took me long, but now i think i found strange behavior of the Kubernetes plugin - monitoring definition and especially matching criteria in the dynamic address groups.

TL/DR - having service in the kubernetes cluster, which does not have assigned ports - breaks the polling and watcher


Starting point was : working cn series as well the possibility to use the data from monitoring definition - both: to create dynamic groups and to use them in policy. Suddenly after while the monitoring definition processes (polling and watcher) stopped function (stuck in initializing state). Long story short - discovered in the kubernetes plugin logs the following suspicious lines

2024-05-23 13:21:39.868 +0300 ERROR: k8s-ret: skipping service, no port information found 'NoneType' object is not iterable
2024-05-23 13:21:39.869 +0300 ERROR: k8s-ret: skipping service, no port information found 'NoneType' object is not iterable


Looking at my kubernetes cluster - there were two distinct from the other services - without ports (PORT(S) column)

NAMESPACE         NAME                          TYPE        CLUSTER-IP      EXTERNAL-IP   PORT(S)                  AGE
longhorn-system   longhorn-engine-manager       ClusterIP   None            <none>        <none>                   87d
longhorn-system   longhorn-replica-manager      ClusterIP   None            <none>        <none>                   87d


Next - i just add some ports definition to them - as i want to see if that will make any difference to the panorama monitoring definition processes. And it does - the processes started in normal state (connected)

2024-05-23 13:24:20.327 +0300 DEBUG: k8s-ret: <labkube> Successfully retrieved Service information.


Still not sure for the root cause of this behavior, probably can be bug. As having services without ports seems just ok for me.
Hope that, this behavior is reproducible elsewhere and will be addressed?
