Exec type Readiness Probe does not timeout

Solution In Progress - Updated -


In using a readiness probe that may take a long time to run, I expected it to be interrupted after the specified timeout.

A probe defined like this:

"readinessProbe": {
  "exec": {
    "command": ["bash", "-c", "sleep 75"]
  "timeoutSeconds": 5
