    pod interactive kubernetes exec

    It's quite common to at least have a shell installed on the containers since it's footprint on the kB range. Let's check how to get an interactive shell on a running Pod. In case the pod we want to connect to is just using one container like in this example:

    $ kubectl get pods 
    NAME                                     READY   STATUS      RESTARTS   AGE
    pet2cattle-s3sync-5f9b9486cf-nznph       1/1     Running     0          2m20s



From pet to cattle
Treat your kubernetes clusters like cattle, not pets
