Setting Up Pod Disruption Budgets

Setting up a pod disruption budget is important due to erratic node shutdown possibility. What could happen is that nodes that are hosting the applications start terminating, and our application becomes unresponsive until the application is re-located to another node. To avoid that situation, for the instances we need to configure pod disruption budget on our helm deployments.

apiVersion: policy/v1
kind: PodDisruptionBudget
  name: application-name
  maxAvailable: 50%
      app: application-name
