KubeTurbo helm chart - enable a toleration


I have an enhancement request for the KubeTurbo helm chart, which is here:

The ask is to please add the ability to include a toleration in the deployment, using a value passed into the helm chart. That is, add an option in the values.yaml file that lets us pass a toleration or set of tolerations for the kubeturbo deployment.

Even better would be to add the ability to add options for both a toleration and an affinity.

This is about taints and tolerations:

This is about affinity:

The business reason we need this is that AKS clusters have at least two node pools as a best practice:

1. A system node pool which has the taint CriticalAddonsOnly=true:NoSchedule

    - Ideally KubeTurbo would be able to run on this node pool. This requires a toleration of that taint.

    - Info:

2. And a user node pool where end-user applications run

The system node pool is there to enable system utilities like KubeTurbo to run without competing with applications for resources.


Thank you
