Auto scaling in Kubernetes (Part 2)
In the first part of this post, we visited auto scaling using the metrics server. In part two, we will look at using custom metrics, specifically those from linkerd and ingress-nginx to perform auto scaling based on latency and requests per second.
One of the many useful features within Kubernetes, is the concept of horizontal autoscaling your deployments. In this post, we will take a closer look at how to configure this, and some things to watch out for. This post about auto scaling has been split into 2 parts. The first is about auto scaling using CPU and memory metrics. Part 2 focusses on auto scaling with ingress-nginx and linkerd.
