  32. Control Plane Updates 32

  33. Scheduling Profiles Customization Product Manager: Gaurav Singh LowNodeUtilization Spread pods

    evenly across nodes HighNodeUtilization Pack as many pods as possible on to as few nodes NoScoring Quickest scheduling cycle by disabling all score plugins Customize default out of box behaviour of openshift scheduler with Scheduling Profiles *Note: in OSP 4.7 customer can use both policy API and profiles but going forward policy API will be depreciated to profiles Extension points Scheduling profile Scheduling plugin Extension points Scheduling plugin Add more Scheduling plugins Pre Build Profile Build your own Profile Scheduling profile : Openshift-scheduler can have only one profile Scheduling plugin : Implements one or more extension points Extension point : Plugins that define the scheduling logic 33
  34. What's New in OpenShift 4.9 • The default route name

    for OpenShift Cluster Components now allows for any level of flexibility in customers environments. The current <name>.apps.<cluster>.<domain> can be customized for the OAuth server and the the OCP console. • The OAuth server route can be customized using the ingress config route configuration API. A custom hostname and a TLS certificate can be set using the spec.componentRoutes part of the configuration.Set the custom hostname and optionally configure the serving certificate and key. Custom Route Name and Certs for certain cluster components PM: Anand Chandramohan Component Custom Route supported? OAuth Yes (from 4.9) Console Yes (from 4.8) Downloads Yes (from 4.8) Monitoring (AlertManager, Prometheus, Grafana, Thanos) No Image Registry No apiVersion: config.openshift.io/v1 kind: Ingress metadata: name: cluster spec: componentRoutes: - name: oauth-openshift namespace: openshift-authentication hostname: <custom-hostname> servingCertKeyPairSecret: name: <secret-name>
  35. What's New in OpenShift 4.9 Background on API Audit log

    policy (introduced in OpenShift 4.6) Control the amount of information that is logged to the API 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 The Default audit log policy in OCP 4.8 logged request bodies for OAuth access token creation (login) and deletion (logout) requests. Previously, deletion request bodies were not logged. Improved customization of Audit Config 35 PM: Anand Chandramohan
  36. What's New in OpenShift 4.9 • You can configure an

    audit log policy that defines custom rules (new in 4.9). You can specify multiple groups and define which profile to use for that group. These custom rules take precedence over the top-level profile field. The custom rules are evaluated from top to bottom, and the first that matches is applied apiVersion: config.openshift.io/v1 kind: APIServer metadata: ... spec: audit: customRules: - group: system:authenticated:oauth profile: WriteRequestBodies - group: system:authenticated profile: AllRequestBodies profile: Default • Add one or more groups and specify the profile to use for that group. These custom rules take precedence over the top-level profile field. The custom rules are evaluated from top to bottom, and the first that matches is applied. • Set audit log profile to Default, WriteRequestBodies, AllRequestBodies, or None. If you do not set this top-level audit.profile field, it defaults to the Default profile. Configuring the Audit log policy with custom rules 36 PM: Anand Chandramohan
  37. What's New in OpenShift 4.9 • You can disable audit

    logging for OpenShift Container Platform. When you disable audit logging, even OAuth access token requests and OAuth authorize token requests are not logged. kind: APIServer metadata: ... spec: audit: profile: None • You can also disable audit logging only for specific groups by specifying custom rules in the spec.audit.customRules field. Disable Audit Logging 37 PM: Anand Chandramohan
  38. What's New in OpenShift 4.9 Etcd Updates - Ciphers Customization

    38 TLS security profiles provide a way for servers to regulate which ciphers a client can use when connecting to the server. This ensures that OpenShift Container Platform components use cryptographic libraries that do not allow known insecure protocols, ciphers, or algorithms. apiVersion: config.openshift.io/v1 kind: APIServer metadata: name: cluster spec: tlsSecurityProfile: type: Custom custom: ciphers: - ECDHE-ECDSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305 - ECDHE-RSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305 - ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256 - ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256 minTLSVersion: VersionTLS11 Name: cluster Namespace: ...

  39. What's New in OpenShift 4.9 Etcd Updates - Cert Rotation

    39 etcd certificates are used for encrypted communication between etcd member peers, as well as encrypted client traffic. The following certificates are generated and used by etcd and other processes that communicate with etcd: Peer certificates: Used for communication between etcd members. Client certificates: Used for encrypted server-client communication. Client certificates are currently used by the API server only, and no other service should connect to etcd directly except for the proxy. Client secrets (etcd-client, etcd-metric-client, etcd-metric-signer, and etcd-signer) are added to the openshift-config, openshift-monitoring, and openshift-kube-apiserver namespaces. Server certificates: Used by the etcd server for authenticating client requests. Metric certificates: All metric consumers connect to proxy with metric-client certificates. etcd certificates are signed by the etcd-signer; they come from a certificate authority (CA) that is generated by the bootstrap process. The CA certificates are valid for 10 years. The peer, client, and server certificates are valid for three years. These certificates are only managed by the system and are automatically rotated. PM: Anand Chandramohan
  40. What's New in OpenShift 4.9 Etcd updates - Auto defrag

    40 This feature enables an automated mechanism which provides defragmentation as the result of observations from the cluster. The goal is to provide a controller which manages automation of etcd defragmentation based on observable thresholds. A defrag controller has been added to the cluster-etcd-operator that will check the endpoints of the etcd cluster every 10 minutes for observable signs of fragmentation. The criteria for defragmentation is defined as: • Cluster must be observed as HighlyAvailableTopologyMode. • The etcd cluster must report all members as healthy. • minDefragBytes this is a minimum database size in bytes before defragmentation should be considered. 100 MB. • maxFragmentedPercentage this is a percentage of the store that is fragmented and would be reclaimed after defragmentation. 45%. Benefits • Large scale clusters, that previously felt the pain of lack of fragmentation (resource bloat, OOM events, down time) can now can now benefit from the defrag controller that manages the maintenance of etcd backend • Heavy churn workloads do not negatively impact cluster performance. • Cluster operands utilize only the necessary resources to provide service PM: Anand Chandramohan
