Kafka connect couchbase : 4.1.6
Total Pod : 5
Task : 2 each pod
scale policy : max 5, min 3
the issue is that the cbkc pod is set to downscale when it it not consuming enough resources. So when it is brought down, the memory consumed by the active pods suddenly shoot up. After this the active pods are shut down because of OOM error. Then we restart these pods.
we have tried same, we had set min to 5 and max 7 but faced same issue, whenever we had diff values of min and max and on pod scale up to max then faced same value. But when we have same values then even 5 pod (min and max) we didn’t faced that issue.
