表明容器是否可以接受服务请求。如果readiness探测失败,则endpoints控制器会从endpoints中摘除该Pod IP。在初始化延迟探测时间之前,默认是Failure。如果没有设置readiness探测,该状态为success。


基于Kubernetes 1.11.0



kl.probeManager.Start() //启动探测服务



// Manager manages pod probing. It creates a probe "worker" for every container that specifies a
// probe (AddPod). The worker periodically probes its assigned container and caches the results. The
// manager use the cached probe results to set the appropriate Ready state in the PodStatus when
// requested (UpdatePodStatus). Updating probe parameters is not currently supported.
// TODO: Move liveness probing out of the runtime, to here.
type Manager interface {
    // AddPod creates new probe workers for every container probe. This should be called for every
    // pod created.
    AddPod(pod *v1.Pod)

    // RemovePod handles cleaning up the removed pod state, including terminating probe workers and
    // deleting cached results.
    RemovePod(pod *v1.Pod)

    // CleanupPods handles cleaning up pods which should no longer be running.
    // It takes a list of "active pods" which should not be cleaned up.
    CleanupPods(activePods []*v1.Pod)

    // UpdatePodStatus modifies the given PodStatus with the appropriate Ready state for each
    // container based on container running status, cached probe results and worker states.
    UpdatePodStatus(types.UID, *v1.PodStatus)

    // Start starts the Manager sync loops.

这是一个Manager的接口声明,该Manager负载pod的探测。当执行AddPod时,会为Pod中每一个容器创建一个执行探测任务的worker, 该worker会对所分配的容器进行周期性的探测,并把探测结果缓存。当UpdatePodStatus方法执行时,该manager会使用探测的缓存结果设置PodStatus为近似Ready的状态:

    // Scheme to use for connecting to the host.
    // Defaults to HTTP.

// TCPSocketAction describes an action based on opening a socket
type TCPSocketAction struct {

    // Number must be in the range 1 to 65535.
    // Name must be an IANA_SVC_NAME.
    Port intstr.IntOrString `json:"port" protobuf:"bytes,1,opt,name=port"`

通过k8s部署生产环境应用时,建议设置上liveness和readiness, 这也是保障服务稳定性的最佳实践。
另外由于Pod Ready不能保证实际的业务应用Ready可用,在最新的 1.14 版本中新增了一个Pod Readiness Gates 特性 。通过这个特性,可以保证应用Ready后进而设置Pod Ready。



此处继续源代码:在validation.go中validateHandler中进行了限制(也为上面Handler struct提到的"One and only one of the following should be specified."提供了事实依据)

func validateHandler(handler *core.Handler, fldPath *field.Path) field.ErrorList {
    numHandlers := 0
    allErrors := field.ErrorList{}
    if handler.Exec != nil {
        if numHandlers > 0 {
            allErrors = append(allErrors, field.Forbidden(fldPath.Child("exec"), "may not specify more than 1 handler type"))
        } else {
            allErrors = append(allErrors, validateExecAction(handler.Exec, fldPath.Child("exec"))...)
    if handler.HTTPGet != nil {
        if numHandlers > 0 {
            allErrors = append(allErrors, field.Forbidden(fldPath.Child("httpGet"), "may not specify more than 1 handler type"))
        } else {
            allErrors = append(allErrors, validateHTTPGetAction(handler.HTTPGet, fldPath.Child("httpGet"))...)
    if handler.TCPSocket != nil {
        if numHandlers > 0 {
            allErrors = append(allErrors, field.Forbidden(fldPath.Child("tcpSocket"), "may not specify more than 1 handler type"))
        } else {
            allErrors = append(allErrors, validateTCPSocketAction(handler.TCPSocket, fldPath.Child("tcpSocket"))...)
    if numHandlers == 0 {
        allErrors = append(allErrors, field.Required(fldPath, "must specify a handler type"))
    return allErrors
