How to expose multiple port in services in kubernetes or Multi-Port Services

You have two options:

  1. You could have multiple services, one for each port. As you pointed out, each service will end up with a different IP address
  2. You could have a single service with multiple ports. In this particular case, you must give all ports a name.

For some Services, you need to expose more than one port. Kubernetes lets you configure multiple port definitions on a Service object. When using multiple ports for a Service, you must give all of your ports names so that these are unambiguous. For example:

How to work with command line?

[ec2-user@ip-172-31-26-152 ~]$ kubectl create service  clusterip svc3 --tcp=8080:80 --tcp=8090:80
service/svc3 created
