Kubernetes Support

DigitalOcean Kubernetes (DOKS) is a managed Kubernetes service. Deploy Kubernetes clusters with a fully managed control plane, high availability, autoscaling, and native integration with DigitalOcean Load Balancers and volumes. DOKS clusters are compatible with standard Kubernetes toolchains and the DigitalOcean API and CLI.

Enable DNS caching, use non-shared machine types for the cluster, and scale out or reduce DNS traffic.
Launch an Init Container or run a DaemonSet.
Displaying CPU and memory usage in the Kubernetes Dashboard is not supported at this time.
The output of the kubectl top command does not measure the entire system load in the same way the control panel does.
A node can show as NotReady if it is unhealthy and not accepting pods.
You can configure load balancers that are provisioned by DOKS using Kubernetes service annotations.
Kubernetes service ’externaltrafficpolicy’ field controls how nodes respond to health checks.
You can resize a DOKS node by creating a new node pool of the desired size.
Recommended solutions for common errors raised by Clusterlint, a non-invasive best practices checker for DigitalOcean Kubernetes clusters.
