When initially setting up your environment, it can be helpful to have a few debugging commands handy.


Firstly, check to see if your Kubernetes Jobs started correctly:

$ sigopt cluster kubectl get jobs


NAME.                          COMPLETIONS   DURATION   AGE
experiment-controller-999999   0/1                      2m22s

If you see Jobs that have 0/1 Completions and no Duration, there's likely an issue with the Job.

You can then get more detailed information about the specific job:

$ sigopt cluster kubectl describe jobs/ experiment-controller-999999

This will contain a lot of information about the Job, and list any errors at the bottom.

If the Job has started successfully but you're still not getting results, next check the Pod(s) with a similar process.


$ sigopt cluster kubectl get pods


NAME                                 READY   STATUS               RESTARTS   AGE
experiment-controller-999999-xxxxx   0/1     ImagePullBackOff     0          5m

A Pod Status such as ImagePullBackOff might indicate an issue with credentials not being properly loaded into Kubernetes, or trying to access the wrong registry.

More detailed information about the Pod and any errors can be queried:

$ sigopt cluster kubectl describe pods/ experiment-controller-999999-xxxxx
