Some users have reported the following error in their workspace logs, which has caused some concern:
2021-04-06 11:26:15 : Failure in processing event on attempt 1 out of 1
io.fabric8.kubernetes.client.KubernetesClientException: Operation: [list] for kind: [Pod] with name: [null] in namespace: [redhat-dave-prod-compute] failed.
Fortunately, this is nothing to worry about as this error is due toa socket timeout when listing pods by the heartbeat event handler using the Fabric8 kubernetes-client library. The socket timeouts could be due to a busy Kubernetes server not responding to client requests quick enough. Since the heartbeat event handler runs every minute and provides a de facto retry mechanism, having intermittent socket timeouts will not result in a failed deployment.
In summary, this error will not affect the outcome of a workspace/job and should be ignored.
