You can use quay.io/spaces/kube-httpcache:stable - Github README

Necessary configuration when RBAC is enabled:

  • create ServiceAccount: kubectl --kubeconfig kube_config_cluster.yml -n web create serviceaccount varnish-watcher
  • create ClusterRole + ClusterRoleBinding: kubectl --kubeconfig kube_config_cluster.yml apply -f role.yml
  • change namespace web to your namespace name (-n yournamespace and namespace: yournamespace)
apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
kind: ClusterRole
metadata:
  name: watch-endpoints
rules:
- apiGroups:
  - ""
  resources:
  - endpoints
  - pods
  verbs:
  - watch
  - get
apiVersion: rbac.authorization.k8s.io/v1
kind: ClusterRoleBinding
metadata:
  name: watch-endpoints_varnish-watcher
roleRef:
  apiGroup: rbac.authorization.k8s.io
  kind: ClusterRole
  name: watch-endpoints
subjects:
- kind: ServiceAccount
  name: varnish-watcher
  namespace: web
        

Now you can deploy quay.io/spaces/kube-httpcache:stable with command args: -admin-addr=0.0.0.0 -admin-port=6088 -varnish-secret-file=/etc/varnish/secret2/secret -varnish-vcl-template=/etc/varnish/tmpl/default.vcl.tmpl -varnish-storage=malloc,256M -backend-namespace=web -backend-service=production -backend-port=http
