How to create a model container image for Watson NLP for Embed

This longer blog post shows how to : … build a model init container with a custom model for Watson NLP for Embed. … upload the model init container to the IBM Cloud container registry. … deploy the model init container and the Watson NLP runtime to an IBM Cloud Kubernetes Cluster. … test Watson NLP runtime with the loaded model using the REST API.

Run Watson NLP for Embed on an IBM Cloud Kubernetes cluster in a Virtual Private Cloud environment

This blog post is about to deploy the IBM Watson Natural Language Processing Library for Embed to an IBM Cloud Kubernetes cluster in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environment and is related to my blog post Run Watson NLP for Embed on IBM Cloud Code Engine. IBM Cloud Kubernetes cluster is a “certified, managed Kubernetes solution, built for creating a cluster of compute hosts to deploy and manage containerized apps on IBM Cloud“.

Bash scripting to ensure Kubernetes resources are deleted in synchronization

Sometimes we need to ensure that resources in Kubernetes are fully deleted before we setup other resources. In Kubernetes the timing and the synchronization can be very import and relevant. In that blog post we see a function of a bash script, that exactly does that job for namespaces. We are using a “for loop” combined with a nested “while loops” and other functionalities in bash to address that topic.

Get your custom logs of your operator

That blog post is about an easy example to get your custom logs of your operator, when the operator is running on a Kubernetes cluster. That blog post does reference an example GitHub project called Example Tenancy Frontend Operator you can use to verify the steps. (branch monitor-grafana-operator) In this project I wrote a short custom logging that... Continue Reading →

Monitor your custom operator with Prometheus

hat blog post does focus on a customized monitoring with Prometheus for a custom operator implementation build with the golang Operator SDK. For the monitoring we will use the Prometheus operator. Alain Arom and I inspected that topic and here we show you one example hands-on journey how to get the technical job done. There are a lot of materials out there, but in that blog post we follow an end-to-end scenario for a beginner to intermediate level (without any stop in the middle 😉 of the road). We will only focus on:how it basically works and not why or what we should do in monitoring.

Add a conversion webhook to an operator to convert API versions

In that blog post we will add a webhook to our existing operator project Multi Tenancy Frontend Operator in the branch update-operator were we created the v2alpha2 API version for the operator in the last blog post "Add a new API version to an existing operator". The final implementation for the current blog post you find in the webhook-gen-operator branch. (details about conversion webhook) Yes, that... Continue Reading →
