  12. What's new in OpenShift 4.8 IPv6 Single / Dual Stack

    Support PM: Marc Curry, Deepthi Dharwar • IPv6 single/dual stack is supported in OpenShift 4.8 (k8s 1.21) with OVN. • Single Stack ◦ Either an IPv4 or IPv6 address is assigned to the pod interface • Dual Stack ◦ Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses assigned to the interface • Simple install-time configuration ◦ Modify “install-config.yaml” to specify IPv6 subnets in addition to IPv4. • Post-install configuration: ◦ Edit “network.config.openshift.io ” config to add secondary “(machine|cluster|service)Network ” values, and they will get rolled out correctly. • Restrictions / Caveats / Notes ◦ OVN only, no plans to support in openshift-sdn ◦ Supported platform at GA: Bare Metal IPI (other platforms TBD) pod eth0 192.168.12.3 2001:db8:0:12 IPv4 IPv6 IPv4 Host IPv6 Host
  13. What's new in OpenShift 4.8 API Graduations to GA PM:

    Gaurav Singh • VerticalPodAutoscaler ◦ Vertical Pod Autoscaling (VPA in short) provides an automatic way to set Container’s resource requests and limits. ◦ It uses historic CPU and memory usage data to fine-tune ◦ Prevents under and over utilization of resources • CronJob ◦ CronJobs are useful for creating periodic and recurring tasks, like running backups ◦ CronJobs can also schedule individual tasks for a specific time ◦ Cron is setup using time zone of master node • PodDisruptionBudget ◦ Avoid application outage by using PodDisruptionBudgets ◦ A PDB limits the number of Pods of a replicated application that are down simultaneously from voluntary disruptions ◦ Whenever a disruption to the pods in a service is calculated to cause the service to drop below the budget, the operation is paused until it can maintain the budget.
  14. What's new in OpenShift 4.8 Vertical Pod Autoscaling (GA) PM:

    Gaurav Singh Description • Recommends values for CPU and memory requests based on historical trends Things to remember • VPA required pod eviction for applying recommended resource setting • Default set to minimum of 2 pod deployment but can be configured to 1 pod Modes • Off : Recommendation mode • Initial : Assigns resource requests on pod creation and never changes them later. • Recreate : Applies recommended changes to the pod by evicting them when the requested resources differ significantly • Auto : Same as recreate .
  15. Console 18

  16. What's new in OpenShift 4.8 Console routes supports custom &

    wildcard certificates PM: Ali Mobrem New Day 2 Operations • Single point of configuration for custom domains and certificates • Implemented to use the new ingress route configuration API ◦ Console ◦ Downloads (CLI) ◦ Auth For security reasons many customers do not allow wildcard certs in production environments apiVersion: config.openshift.io/v1 kind: Ingress metadata: name: cluster spec: componentRoutes: - name: console namespace: openshift-console hostname: <custom-hostname> servingCertKeyPairSecret: name: <secret-name>

  34. Control Plane Updates 39

  35. What's new in OpenShift 4.8 • Single Service-Serving-Certificates for Headless

    Statefulset ◦ Provide automatic certificate generation and rotation for direct pod-to-pod communication similar to the service-serving-certificates operator. ◦ Generate a service serving certificate for headless services now includes a wildcard subject in the format of *.<service.name>.<service.namespace>.svc. This allows for TLS-protected connections to individual stateful set pods without having to manually generate certificates for these pods. • Support subject claim URI scheme of the OpenID Connect IdPs ◦ Problem: Users of OIDC systems are unable to log in to OpenShift in case when the OIDC IdPs use `sub` claims adhering to the URI scheme ◦ Why this is important: The oauth-server rejects logins from users of OIDC IdPs that are quite popular, even though these follow the RFC requirements for the `sub` claim that the oauth-server finds problematic. ◦ Now in 4.8, users of identity providers that use URI scheme (which should be possible given the RFC: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7519#section-4.1.2) in their `sub` claims will be able to log in to OpenShift Control Plane Updates PM: Anand Chandramohan
  36. What's new in OpenShift 4.6 The Default audit log policy

    now logs request bodies for OAuth access token creation (login) and deletion (logout) requests. Previously, deletion request bodies were not logged. Background on Node Audit log policy (introduced in OpenShift 4.6) Control the amount of information that is logged to the node audit logs by choosing the audit log policy profile to use. • Default: Logs only metadata for read and write requests; does not log request bodies except for OAuth access token requests. This is the default policy. • WriteRequestBodies: In addition to logging metadata for all requests, logs request bodies for every write request to the API servers (create, update, patch). This profile has more resource overhead than the Default profile. • AllRequestBodies: In addition to logging metadata for all requests, logs request bodies for every read and write request to the API servers (get, list, create, update, patch). This profile has the most resource overhead. apiVersion: config.openshift.io/v1 kind: APIServer metadata: ... spec: audit: profile: WriteRequestBodies Improved customization of Audit Config 41 PM: Anand Chandramohan
  37. What's new in OpenShift 4.6 Alerts and information on APIs

You can use the new APIRequestCount API to track what is using the deprecated APIs. This allows you to plan whether any actions are required in order to upgrade to the next release. $ oc get apirequestcount 42 PM: Anand Chandramohan NAME REMOVEDINRELEASE REQUESTSINCURRENTHOUR REQUESTSINLAST24H alertmanagerconfigs.v1alpha1. monitoring.coreos.com 19 21 alertmanagers.v1.monitoring.c oreos.com 64 64 ingresses.v1beta1.extensions 1.22 22 26
