The Kubernetes 110 pod limit per node

The maximum pods per node has a hard limit of 110. After a bit of googling I found #23349. Since in my config I have few bit larger nodes I definitely would like to increase this hard limit.

This can be done by setting the --max-pods in kubelet and restarting the service. For microk8s the configuration file can be found:


Add line to the bottom (limit to 200 pods):


And restart the service:

$ service snap.microk8s.daemon-kubelet restart

PS: This needs to be done on each node.
