Please stand by @swift-spring-8620 as I search the knowledge base. I normally take about 20 seconds or so. :wave:
---------------------- To configure your application to point to your given
baseHostname
in your
project.garden.yml
file, you can use Garden's shared variable feature. In your action configuration file, you can reference the
baseHostname
variable like this:
Copy code
yaml
hostname: backend.${var.base-hostname}
In this example,
backend
is the name of the application, and
${var.base-hostname}
is the shared variable from the project configuration file. This will let you access your application on
backend.yourBaseHostname
. Here's an example of how you might set the
baseHostname
in your
project.garden.yml
file:
Copy code
yaml
apiVersion: garden.io/v1
kind: Project
name: my-project
environments:
- name: local
  variables:
    base-hostname: myBaseHostname.local.demo.garden
providers:
- name: local-kubernetes
  environments: ["local"]
In this example,
myBaseHostname.local.demo.garden
is the base hostname. You can replace this with your own base hostname. For more information, you can refer to the Garden documentation () on configuring actions. ----------------------

Hey @microscopic-river-74022 I have configured it as such, but I am getting an ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE. Here is how I have set it up in my action configuration file: kind: Build type: container name: fastapi --- kind: Deploy description: The backend for the voting UI name: fastapi type: container build: fastapi dependencies: deploy.redis spec: args: [python, app/main.py] ports: name: http protocol: TCP containerPort: 80 healthCheck: httpGet: path: /api port: http ingresses: path: / hostname: "${var.baseHostname}" port: http

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books:
---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. The configuration you've provided seems correct at first glance, but the
ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE
error could be due to a variety of factors. It could be related to the application itself, the network, or even the specific configuration of your Garden project. I would recommend checking the following: 1. Ensure your application is correctly set up to receive and respond to HTTP requests on the specified port (80 in your case). 2. Verify that your
baseHostname
variable is correctly defined in your
project.garden.yml
file. 3. Check the logs of your deployed services for any errors or warnings. 4. Make sure your network allows traffic on the specified port. If you're still having trouble, you might find it helpful to refer to the Garden troubleshooting guide () or the Garden documentation on configuration files (). ----------------------

@microscopic-river-74022 Hey Kapa, How can I quickly bring down all deployments and pods when using garden?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books:
---------------------- To bring down all deployments and pods when using Garden, you can use the
garden cleanup
command. This command cleans up (i.e., un-deploys) the specified actions. If no arguments are provided, it cleans up all deploys/services in the project. Here's how you can use it:
Copy code
bash
garden cleanup deploy
This command deletes all deployed services in the project. Please note that this command does not take into account any deploys depending on the cleaned up actions, and might therefore leave the project in an unstable state. Running
garden deploy
after will re-deploy anything missing. For more information, you can refer to the Garden documentation on the cleanup command (). ----------------------

@microscopic-river-74022 Is there any other command I can use to scale down all services?
m

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books:
---------------------- Garden itself does not provide a direct command to scale down all services. However, you can use Kubernetes'
kubectl
command to manually scale down services. Here's an example of how you can use
kubectl
to scale down a deployment:
Copy code
bash
kubectl scale deploy <deployment-name> --replicas 0
Replace
<deployment-name>
with the name of your deployment. This command sets the number of replicas for your deployment to 0, effectively scaling it down. Please note that this is a manual process and you would need to run this command for each service you want to scale down. For more information, you can refer to the Kubernetes documentation on scaling a deployment (). ----------------------

@microscopic-river-74022 Can you suggest me a way to configure fastapi? I have created a microservices directory, within which I have another directory called fastapi. I have created a garden.yml file but for some reason I cannot get fast api to work
m

---------------------- To configure FastAPI with Garden, you need to create a
garden.yml
configuration file in your
fastapi
directory. Here's a basic example of how you might set it up:
Copy code
yaml
kind: Module
description: FastAPI application
type: container
name: fastapi
services:
  - name: fastapi
    ports:
      - name: http
        containerPort: 80
    healthCheck:
      httpGet:
        path: /health
        port: http
    ingresses:
      - path: /api
        port: http
In this example, the FastAPI application is configured to listen on port 80. The health check endpoint is
/health
, and the application is accessible at the
/api
path. Please note that this is a basic example and you might need to adjust it according to your specific needs. For instance, you might need to add dependencies, environment variables, volumes, etc. If you're still having trouble, make sure that: 1. Your FastAPI application is correctly set up to receive and respond to HTTP requests on the specified port (80 in this case). 2. You have correctly set up your
garden.yml
file in the
fastapi
directory. 3. You have correctly set up your project-level
garden.yml
file in the
microservices
directory. For more information, you can refer to the Garden documentation on configuration files (). ----------------------

@swift-spring-8620 That's a great question, but unfortunately I am only capable of responding to a maximum of three questions per thread. Don't hesitate to create a new thread for any further questions you have though. I'm here to help!
