Issue

Pods have connectivity issues when using an EgressIP Including:

  • Dropping of connection from time to time.
  • Experiencing network timeouts when connecting to services outside of a cluster.

After adding an EgressIP resource to selected Namespaces/Pods, the configuration may initially function correctly, then after some time, the pods may start to display the above issues.
