Kernel Modules

Rok depends on modules merged in recent versions of the vanilla Linux kernel. It might be the case that the chosen AMI does not use a recent enough kernel, or that the necessary modules are not enabled in the kernel config. For this, we highly recommend that you deploy rok-kmod, a helper that runs as DaemonSet and inserts pre-built modules available in its container image into the running kernel of each Kubernetes node dynamically.

Note that during this process, rok-kmod does not modify the host root filesystem in any way.

Obtain the Kernel version of your Kubernetes nodes:

$ kubectl get nodes -o json | jq -r '.items[].status.nodeInfo.kernelVersion'

Make sure your kernel is included in the already supported ones:

If your kernel does not match one of the above please ask the Arrikto Tech Team to provide a new rok-kmod image with support for your kernel.
