C-0121 - Ensure that the admission control plugin EventRateLimit is set
Description of the the issue
EventRateLimit admission control enforces a limit on the number of events that the API Server will accept in a given time slice. A misbehaving workload could overwhelm and DoS the API Server, making it unavailable. This particularly applies to a multi-tenant cluster, where there might be a small percentage of misbehaving tenants which could have a significant impact on the performance of the cluster overall. Hence, it is recommended to limit the rate of events that the API server will accept.
Note: This is an Alpha feature in the Kubernetes 1.15 release.
What does this control test
Limit the rate at which the API server accepts requests.
How to check it manually
Run the following command on the Control Plane node:
ps -ef | grep kube-apiserver
Verify that the
--enable-admission-plugins argument is set to a value that includes
Follow the Kubernetes documentation and set the desired limits in a configuration file.
Then, edit the API server pod specification file
/etc/kubernetes/manifests/kube-apiserver.yaml and set the below parameters.
You need to carefully tune in limits as per your environment.
EventRateLimit is not set.
