Minikube Hardware Resources

Cluster Configuration

The cluster-up command example in Minikube Cluster provides a good default virtual hardware configuration for a Minikube cluster running the CDK.

Disk Space

When the Minikube cluster runs low on disk space, it acts unpredictably. Unexpected application errors can appear.

Verify that adequate disk space is available by logging in to the Minikube cluster and running a command to display free disk space:

$ minikube ssh
$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
devtmpfs        3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs           3.9G  383M  3.6G  10% /run
tmpfs           3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs           3.9G   64K  3.9G   1% /tmp
/dev/sda1        25G  7.7G   16G  33% /mnt/sda1
/Users          465G  219G  247G  48% /Users
$ exit
logout

In the preceding example, 16 GB of disk space is available on the Minikube cluster.
