Constraints and Labels
To make scheduling more efficient and compatible with Kubernetes, the Elastigroup supports all of the Kubernetes constraint mechanisms for scheduling pods:
- Node Selector – Constrain Pods to nodes with particular labels.
- Node Affinity – Constrain which nodes your Pod is eligible to be scheduled on based on labels on the node.
We support hard / soft affinity (requiredDuringSchedulingIgnoredDuringExecution /preferredDuringSchedulingIgnoredDuringExecution)
- Pod Affinity and Pod Anti-Affinity – Schedules a Pod based on which other Pods are or are not running on a node.
- Pod Port Restrictions – We validate that each pod will have required ports available on the machine
Spotinst labels allow you to adjust the default behavior of scaling in Ocean, by adding Spotinst labels to your pods you can control the node termination process or its life cycle.
|Label Key||Accepted Values||Description|
|spotinst.io/restrict-scale-down||When a node is running a pod with such a label, it will not be scaled down by Spotinst’s Auto-Scaler|
|spotinst.io/node-lifecycle||Pods which contain this label are forced to run on an on-demand instance|
|spotinst.io/gpu-type||Sets the GPU accelerator|
Note: This setting applies only to GKE clusters
