Startup Probes


Startup probes, when configured, run as soon as the container is created. They are typically used to ensure that the application has started.


Check the checkbox to enable the startup probe. Currently, the supported protocols are exec, gRPC, TCP, and HTTP/1.X

SCE attempts to estimate the maximum time the probe can run before resulting in a failure, based on the values in the fields above. This guidance is provided below the Configure button. If you expect your container often takes longer than this to start, you should adjust the thresholds in the fields above to ensure that you're not prematurely reallocating containers that could have reached a successful status.
