Targeting pods can be burdensome (i.e. in a deployment with replicas). If a k8s cluster has a service called
nginx you could have several pods which might be named something like this:
nginx-3528986049-kpd4z nginx-3528986049-71s10 nginx-3528986049-f6mwf nginx-3528986049-ltx6j nginx-3528986049-m3cmm nginx-3528986049-h8cnn nginx-3528986049-6v4c1
Getting logs for the nginx service is easy with
# single uspecified nginx pod: ckube logs nginx # all nginx pods ckube logs nginx -a # follow the logs ckube logs nginx -f
Similar concurrent functionality exists for
You can toggle through your services and see the associated pods.
Get an interactive view of your pods with
ckube ls. You can further refine the prompt results by searching using
/. Selecting a pod will print detailed pod information returned by
