KEP of the Week

KEP 4568: Resilient watchcache initialization

This KEP mitigates the issues that can lead to an overload of the of kube-apiserver and etcd during initialization or reinitialization of the watchcache layer.

The changes reduce the number of requests during initialization, by introducing a new PostStartHook that waits for watchcache of all builtin resources to be initialized first. It also implements rejecting hanging watches with a Too Many Requests 429 result. Other changes include adjusting which lists are delegated to etcd.

This KEP is tracked to be promoted to beta in the upcoming 1.31 release.
