AWS Node Termination Handler
The AWS Node Termination Handler is an operational DaemonSet built to run on any Kubernetes cluster using AWS EC2 Spot Instances. When a user starts the termination handler, the handler watches the AWS instance metadata service for spot instance interruptions within a customer's account. If a termination notice is received for an instance that’s running on the cluster, the termination handler begins a multi-step cordon and drain process for the node.
You can run the termination handler on any Kubernetes cluster running on AWS, including clusters created with Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service.
The termination handler consists of a ServiceAccount, ClusterRole, ClusterRoleBinding, and a DaemonSet. All four of these Kubernetes constructs are required for the termination handler to run properly.
You can create and run all of these at once on your own Kubernetes cluster by running the following command:
kubectl apply -k 'https://github.com/aws/aws-node-termination-handler/config/base?ref=master'
By default, the aws-node-termination-handler will run on all of your nodes (on-demand and spot). If your spot instances are labeled, you can configure aws-node-termination-handler to only run on your labeled spot nodes. If you're using the tag
lifecycle=Ec2Spot, you can run the following to apply our spot-node-selector overlay:
kubectl apply -k 'https://github.com/aws/aws-node-termination-handler/config/overlays/spot-node-selector?ref=master'
If you're using a different key/value tag to label your spot nodes, you can write your own overlay to set a spot-node-selector while still receiving updates of the base kubernetes resource files. See our spot-node-selector overlay for an example.
