I am now reviewing my mistakes. I would like to know if I need to run a command in a pod like this
/bin/sh -c “tail -f /var/log”

Is this a correct way to do it in the below yaml? I am not sure how to add the double quote near the tail command.

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
  labels:
    run: busybox
  name: busybox
spec:
  containers:
  - command: ["/bin/sh"]
    args: ["-c", "tail -f /var/log"]
    image: busybox
    name: busybox

Hasan Alsaedi:
@Frankie Hung Don’t worry I am sure next time you will pass with a very high score. There are two methods for adding command to container config: [1] command: [‘sh’, ‘-c’, ‘tail tail -f /var/log’] all in one line. see this example: https://kubernetes.io/docs/concepts/workloads/pods/init-containers/#init-containers-in-use

[2] from kubectl like:

[email protected]:~# kubectl run nginx --image=nginx --dry-run=client -o yaml – sh -c “tail -f /var/log”
apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
creationTimestamp: null
labels:
run: nginx
name: nginx
spec:
containers:

  • args:
    • sh
    • -c
    • tail -f /var/log
      image: nginx
      name: nginx
      resources: {}
      dnsPolicy: ClusterFirst
      restartPolicy: Always
      status: {}

Notice the (–) to start the command variables after dry-run this is important.

Hi

This will give you experience and you will sure pass the next time.

You can use commands directly in the args section or in the command and args.

cat <<EOF >> logtest.yaml
apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
  name: counter
spec:
  containers:
  - name: count
    image: busybox
    args:
    - /bin/sh
    - -c
    - >
      i=0;
      while true;
      do
        echo "$i: $(date)" >> /var/log/1.log;
        echo "$(date) INFO $i" >> /var/log/2.log;
        i=$((i+1));
        sleep 1;
      done      
    volumeMounts:
    - name: varlog
      mountPath: /var/log
  - name: count-log-1
    image: busybox
    args: [/bin/sh, -c, 'tail -f /var/log/1.log']
    volumeMounts:
    - name: varlog
      mountPath: /var/log
  - name: count-log-2
    image: busybox
    command: ["/bin/sh"]
    args: ["-c", "tail -f /var/log/2.log"]
    volumeMounts:
    - name: varlog
      mountPath: /var/log
  volumes:
  - name: varlog
    emptyDir: {}
EOF

kubectl logs counter -c count-log-1
kubectl logs counter -c count-log-2

Thanks a lot! This sidecar demo is exactly what I am looking for!
