Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Event objects in the events.k8s.io/v1 group were unnecessarily being watched by the garbage collection controller. In a case of unbound Event creation (e.g. due to a runaway controller), this could result in degraded performance. The garbage collection controller now ignores Events.

Description Michal Fojtik 2022-08-11 10:42:49 UTC
Description of problem:

The garbage collector must ignore ALL events; otherwise, if a rouge controller or a workload causes unbound event creation, GC performance will degrade as it has to process the events.

Fix: https://github.com/openshift/kubernetes/pull/1338

This bug is to track fix in master (4.12) and also allow to backport to 4.11.1
