Access your pods

This details various ways that you can interact with the code and data running inside your pod.

Using Port Forwarding

If you want access to a specific pod, even if it’s not serving traffic on the internet. To achieve this, Kubernetes has support built into it.

kubectl port-forward kuard 8080:8080

A secure tunnel is created from your local machine, though the K8s master, to the instance of the Pod running on one of the worker nodes.

Getting More Info with Logs

When you need to debug.

# downloads the current logs from the running instance
kubectl logs kuard

# continuously streams logs
kubectl logs -f kuard

# get logs from a previous instance of the container. Useful if your containers are continuously restarting at startup. 
kubectl logs kuard --previous
