Understanding Liveness, Readiness and Startup Probes in Kubernetes

 This is a small article about understanding the liveness, readiness and startup in kubernetes.  There's good explanation in the kubernetes documentation: This video also explains well the process: But I wanted to understand it in a practical way. So I have this demo: It's a simple application running on a kubernetes cluster. apiVersion: apps/v1 kind: Deployment metadata: name: chat-ui spec: replicas: 1 revisionHistoryLimit: 3 selector: matchLabels: app: chat-ui template: metadata: labels: app: chat-ui spec: containers: - image: diegotc/guestbook:20230803-064434 imagePullPolicy: Always nam

Ansible using plugins for dynamic inventories

This is a small post about how to use inventory plugins in Ansible. If you are looking the script way I recommend to read this article:
It explains really good this or you can watch this video:
But if you’re looking to use inventory this article can help you.
First of all, why should I used inventory if all over the internet they’re using the python scripts?
Well, Ansible recommends it:
Inventory plugins take advantage of the most recent updates to Ansible’s core code. We recommend plugins over scripts for dynamic inventory. You can write your own plugin to connect to additional dynamic inventory sources.
The actual ansible guide is quite good, but there was a step that got me confused, probably my english isn’t so good and I didn’t understood it.
We need to enable the plugin. So we have 2 ways of doing this, we could edit the ansible.cfg file located in /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg or in your local folder where you’re working.
Ansible Documentation
According to ansible, you need to enable the plugin, like the following code, but I was killing myself and couldn’t make it work, so what’s the correct way of doing it?
enable_plugins = host_list, script, auto, yaml, ini, toml
The way it works for me
I’m working with aws dynamic inventory. So according to the documentation the file name has to end in aws_ec2.(yml|yaml)
So I need to add the aws_ec2 to the enable plugins.
enable_plugins = aws_ec2, host_list, yaml, ini, script
After that, following the documentation is quite easy
File name: demo.aws_ec2.yml
# Minimal example using environment vars or instance role credentials
# Fetch all hosts in us-east-1, the hostname is the public DNS if it exists, otherwise the private IP address
plugin: aws_ec2
  - us-east-1
If you need to run it
ansible-inventory -i demo.aws_ec2.yml --graph
If you need to use it on a playbook, sending of parameter a private key
ansible-playbook -i demo.aws_ec2.yml playbook.yaml --private-key KEY

Adding Users to Existing Groups in Ubuntu (Oneiric Ocelot)

Hi have been working in Virtual Box, this days and need to add my user to the vboxusers group. I was going to do it graphically, and suddenly I notice that the application I use for doing this job it disappear. :( So I have to use the CLI If you know the group just do this Steps sudo usermod -a -G GROUP USER where -a means append. Add the user to the supplementary group(s). Use only with the -G option. If you want to read more about the usermod do man usermod If you don't know the group Steps groupmode 2 TIMES sudo usermod -a -G GROUP USER If you see the only difference is that you type groupmode and press tab 2 times and all the groups will be display. HOPE it works

En el Encuentro Centroamericano de Software Libre

Actualmente me encuentro en la ciudad de Chitre en Panamá en el VI Encuentro Centroamericano de Software Libre . Por los momentos ha sido una excelente experiencia. Me vuelto a encontrar a varias personas que conocí en el Primer Encuentro Centroamericano y nuevas personas de varios países de centroamerica. Algo nuevo que a tenido este ECSL es la presencia de varias personas reconocidas en la comunidad del Software Libre. Entre ellos, esta Ramon Ramon , famoso bloguero de software libre.  Guillermo Movia Community Manager de America Latina para Mozilla y otras grandes personas de la comunidad de Software Libre en Centroamerica. Mas adelante voy a escribir sobre la charla que di sobre , y otras platicas con las personas de Mozilla, que por cierto conoci a Jorge Aguilar miembro fundador de la Comunidad Mozilla Honduras.
