In a Knative application, traffic can be managed by creating a traffic split. A traffic split is configured as part of a route, which is managed by a Knative service.
Configuring a route allows requests to be sent to different revisions of a service. This routing is determined by the
traffic spec of the
traffic spec declaration consists of one or more revisions, each responsible for handling a portion of the overall traffic. The percentages of traffic routed to each revision must add up to 100%, which is ensured by a Knative validation.
The revisions specified in a
traffic spec can either be a fixed, named revision, or can point to the “latest” revision, which tracks the head of the list of all revisions for the service. The "latest" revision is a type of floating reference that updates if a new revision is created. Each revision can have a tag attached that creates an additional access URL for that revision.
traffic spec can be modified by:
Editing the YAML of a
Service object directly.
Using the Knative (
Using the OpenShift Container Platform web console.
When you create a Knative service, it does not have any default
traffic spec settings.
