Data Persistency

Storage Persistency

By default, Kubeshark employs ephemeral storage, as opposed to persistent storage. Consequently, all content will be lost in scenarios such as pod eviction, OOMkilled events, or any other circumstances that lead to pod restart.

While completely optional, to mitigate the risk of data loss, it is advisable to utilize persistent volume claims, thereby ensuring the use of persistent storage:

  persistentStorage: true
  storageClass: <pvc-class>

Having said the above, Kubeshark will still record traffic the same way without persistent storage.
