If this isn't the right place please let me know - after reading the
"contributing" page that was linked in the readme of kubernetes-ingress
I thought that this mailing list might be my best bet to ask for your input.
I wanted to know if the following feature would be something you'd be
interested in seeing in the official kubernetes-ingress controller: The
ability to add an annotation to a pod that would translate into a weight
in the backend wherever that pod is used.
Our company currently has the need for setting weights for specific pods
and there is no way that I could find to achieve that with the current
The implementation would be as follows:
* Cache all Pod objects and subscribe to changes on all namespaces
similar to the other observed k8s objects in the controller
* Extend EndpointIP in types.go to include the targetRef property of
the k8s object
* handleEndpointIP in controller.go would be extended to look up the
pod from the cache via the targetRef property and set the weight if
* Changes to the weight in the Pod would trigger a reload as well
I've started working on a patch for kubernetes-ingress to implement
that. I'd love your thoughts on this.
