Advisories

Whereabouts is a simple IPAM (IP Address Management) solution for Kubernetes. To get more information about Whereabouts, please visit the official project repository.

Download this Image

The image is available on cgr.dev:

docker pull cgr.dev/chainguard/whereabouts:latest

Usage

There is an official Whereabouts documentation that provides detailed information on how to deploy and configure Whereabouts.

To deploy whereabouts, you can use the manifests available in the official repository at ./docs/crds folder.

git clone https://github.com/k8snetworkplumbingwg/whereabouts && cd whereabouts
kubectl apply \
    -f doc/crds/daemonset-install.yaml \
    -f doc/crds/whereabouts.cni.cncf.io_ippools.yaml \
    -f doc/crds/whereabouts.cni.cncf.io_overlappingrangeipreservations.yaml

Then patch the image to use the Chainguard image:

kubectl -n kube-system patch daemonset whereabouts --type='json' -p='[{"op": "replace", "path": "/spec/template/spec/containers/0/imagePullPolicy", "value":"IfNotPresent"}]'
kubectl -n kube-system set image daemonset/whereabouts whereabouts=cgr.dev/chainguard/whereabouts:latest

To test the deployment, you can create a pod with a network attachment definition:

Note: The following example assumes you have deployed multus cni in your cluster. If you haven't, you can follow the instructions in the official repository at k8snetworkplumbingwg/multus-cni.

cat <<'EOF' | kubectl apply -f -
apiVersion: "k8s.cni.cncf.io/v1"
kind: NetworkAttachmentDefinition
metadata:
  name: whereabouts-conf
spec:
  config: '{
      "cniVersion": "0.3.0",
      "name": "whereaboutsexample",
      "type": "macvlan",
      "master": "eth0",
      "mode": "bridge",
      "ipam": {
        "type": "whereabouts",
        "range": "192.168.2.225/28"
      }
    }'
EOF

Then create a deployment that uses the network attachment definition:

cat <<'EOF' | kubectl apply -f -
apiVersion: apps/v1
kind: Deployment
metadata:
  name: netshoot-deployment
  labels:
    app: netshoot-deployment
spec:
  replicas: 1
  selector:
    matchLabels:
      app: netshoot-pod
  template:
    metadata:
      annotations:
        k8s.v1.cni.cncf.io/networks: whereabouts-conf
      labels:
        app: netshoot-pod
    spec:
      containers:
      - name: netshoot
        image: nicolaka/netshoot
        command:
          - sleep
          - "3600"
        imagePullPolicy: IfNotPresent
EOF

After creating the deployment, you should see a pod running:

$ k get po
NAME                                  READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
netshoot-deployment-8dcd8565b-zm49h   1/1     Running   0          45m

Then you can exec into the pod and check the IP address:

$ k exec -it netshoot-deployment-8dcd8565b-zm49h -- ip a
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host proto kernel_lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: eth0@if2: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP group default
    link/ether 12:27:a2:24:3a:10 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff link-netnsid 0
    inet 10.244.2.2/24 brd 10.244.2.255 scope global eth0
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::1027:a2ff:fe24:3a10/64 scope link proto kernel_ll
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
3: net1@if7: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP group default
    link/ether 2a:d2:d1:26:b3:3c brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff link-netnsid 0
    inet 192.168.2.225/28 brd 192.168.2.239 scope global net1
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::28d2:d1ff:fe26:b33c/64 scope link proto kernel_ll
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Voila! You have successfully deployed Whereabouts and assigned an IP address to a pod.
