Load balance connects to POD’s as POD have IP address NOT containers
POD is running until we have containers are running inside it
All containers in POD have the same environment like NET, MNT, IPC …
Understanding the POD Lifecycle
Pod Phase Description
Pending After you create the Pod object, this is its initial phase. Until the pod
is scheduled to a node and the images of its containers are pulled and started,
it remains in this phase.
Running At least one of the pod’s containers is running.
Succeeded Pods that aren’t intended to run indefinitely are marked as Succeeded when all
their containers complete successfully.
Failed When a pod is not configured to run indefinitely and at least one of its
containers terminates unsuccessfully, the pod is marked as Failed.
Unknown The state of the pod is unknown because the Kubelet has stopped reporting
communicating with the API server. Possibly the worker node has failed or has
disconnected from the network.
