How to disable cloudProviderRateLimiting in OpenShift 4 on Azure

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Default OpenShift 4 IPI installs on Azure can result in rate limiting messages in openshift-ingress namespace, similar to the one described in the issue Hitting rate limit for "NicGet":
Error syncing load balancer: failed to ensure load balancer: ensure(openshift-ingress/router-default): backendPoolID(/subscriptions/d0050fd8-4253-465a-bbbc-83fab9da5e49/resourceGroups/test-gllzw-rg/providers/Microsoft.Network/loadBalancers/test-gllzw/backendAddressPools/test-gllzw) - failed to ensure host in pool: "azure - cloud provider rate limited(read) for operation:NicGet"

NOTE: There is a BZ#1782516 in progress to disable the cloudProviderRateLimiting by default.
