Canary Deployments with NGINX Ingress Controller


This repository contains all resources that are required to test the canary feature of NGINX Ingress Controller.


  • Kubernetes cluster
  • NGINX Ingress Controller 0.21.0+

Getting Started

Canary Test Scenario

Prepare Manifests

First of all, change the host definition in the ingress manifests deploy/prod-ingress.yaml and deploy/canary-ingress.yaml from to your URL

Deploy production release

Roll-out the stable version 1.0.0 to the cluster

$ make step-1
Run tests

Execute the following commands to send n=1000 requests to the endpoint

$ ab -n 1000 -c 100 -s 60 "http://<your_URL>/version"
$ curl -s "http://<your_URL>/metrics" | jq '.calls'

If everything is working as expected, the curl command should return "1000".

Reset request counter

Send GET requests to /reset endpoint to set the request counter to zero

$ curl "http://<your_URL>/reset"
Canary deployment

Push the new software version 1.0.1 as a canary deployment to the cluster

$ make step-2
Perform tests

Again, start sending traffic to the endpoint

$ ab -n 1000 -c 100 -s 60 "http://<your_URL>/version"
Verify the weight split

Do a port forward to each of the pods to check the request count

$ kubectl -n demo-prod port-forward <pod-name> 8080:8080
$ curl -s http://localhost:8080/metrics | jq '.calls'
$ kubectl -n demo-prod port-forward <pod-name> 8081:8080
$ curl -s http://localhost:8081/metrics | jq '.calls'

Unless the weight has been changed to a different value, you should see approximately 800 requests being served by the production deployment and the remainig 200 by the canary.


Remove all resource from the cluster
