Define kubernetes ReplicaSets with Example and commands:

A ReplicaSet’s purpose is to maintain a stable set of replica Pods running at any given time. As such, it is often used to guarantee the availability of a specified number of identical Pods

There are many ways we can use replicasets such that always required number of pods running is guarangteed.

  1. While creating the deployment
 kubectl create deployment pradeepa--image=scmgalaxy/nginx-devopsschoolv1 --replicas=3 -n=pradeepa

2. While the deployment is running

kubectl edit deploy pradeepa-n=pradeepa
Replicas:               2 desired | 2 updated | 2 total | 2 available | 0 unavailable //change this value to desired number of replicas

3. Using scale option

kubectl scale --replicas=1 deploy/pradeepa-n=pradeepa

Always the required number of pods are running is guaranteed.
