Polaris is the default configuration checker used by Starboard. It runs a variety of checks to ensure that Kubernetes Pods and controllers are configured using best practices.
The default Polaris configuration can be customized to do things like:
- Turn checks on and off
- Change the severity level of checks
- Add new custom checks
- Add exemptions for particular workloads or namespaces
- See the Polaris documentation for the list of security, efficiency, and reliability checks.
