Description Abu Kashem 2020-03-06 20:13:42 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1811169 +++

Description of problem:

Currently, /readyz starts reporting failure after ShutdownDelayDuration elapses. The load balancer(s) uses /readyz for health check and are not aware of the shutdown initiation until ShutdownDelayDuration elapses. This does not give the load balancer(s) enough time to detect and react to it.

We expect /readyz to start returning failure as soon as apiserver shutdown is initiated(SIGTERM received). This gives the load balancer a window (defined by ShutdownDelayDuration) to detect that /readyz is red and stop sending traffic to this server.

How reproducible:

Comment 8 Ke Wang 2020-03-24 08:39:26 UTC
Verified with OCP build 4.3.0-0.nightly-2020-03-23-130439, detail see below,

- In one terminal, enter into master 
$ master=$(oc get nodes | grep master | head -1 | cut -d " " -f1)
$ oc debug node/$master
sh-4.2# chroot /host
sh-4.4# while true; do curl -k --silent --show-error https://localhost:6443/readyz ; done

- In another terminal,
$ debug_pod=$(oc get pod -A | grep debug | awk '{print $2}'
$ oc rsh pod/$debug_pod
sh-4.2# chroot /host
sh-4.4# kill -INT `ps aux | grep " kube-apiserver " | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'`

- In the first terminal, check the output, after above kill, can immediately see:

[-]shutdown failed: reason withheld
healthz check failed

The endpoint of readyz will start returning failure as soon as apiserver shutdown is initiated.
