Chapter 1. Ingress Operator in OpenShift Dedicated

1.1. OpenShift Dedicated Ingress Operator

When you create your OpenShift Dedicated cluster, pods and services running on the cluster are each allocated their own IP addresses. The IP addresses are accessible to other pods and services running nearby but are not accessible to outside clients. The Ingress Operator implements the IngressController API and is the component responsible for enabling external access to OpenShift Dedicated cluster services.

The Ingress Operator makes it possible for external clients to access your service by deploying and managing one or more HAProxy-based Ingress Controllers to handle routing. Red Hat Site Reliability Engineers (SRE) manage the Ingress Operator for OpenShift Dedicated clusters. While you cannot alter the settings for the Ingress Operator, you may view the default Ingress Controller configurations, status, and logs as well as the Ingress Operator status.

1.2. View the default Ingress Controller

The Ingress Operator is a core feature of OpenShift Dedicated and is enabled out of the box.

Every new OpenShift Dedicated installation has an ingresscontroller named default. It can be supplemented with additional Ingress Controllers. If the default ingresscontroller is deleted, the Ingress Operator will automatically recreate it within a minute.

Procedure

  • View the default Ingress Controller:

    $ oc describe --namespace=openshift-ingress-operator ingresscontroller/default

1.3. View Ingress Operator status

You can view and inspect the status of your Ingress Operator.

Procedure

  • View your Ingress Operator status:

    $ oc describe clusteroperators/ingress

1.4. View Ingress Controller logs

You can view your Ingress Controller logs.

Procedure

  • View your Ingress Controller logs:

    $ oc logs --namespace=openshift-ingress-operator deployments/ingress-operator -c <container_name>

1.5. View Ingress Controller status

Your can view the status of a particular Ingress Controller.

Procedure

  • View the status of an Ingress Controller:

    $ oc describe --namespace=openshift-ingress-operator ingresscontroller/<name>
