RabbitMQ packaged by VMware - Configure sidecar and init containers

If additional containers are needed in the same pod (such as additional metrics or logging exporters), they can be defined using the *.sidecars parameter. Here is an example:

sidecars:
- name: your-image-name
  image: your-image
  imagePullPolicy: Always
  ports:
  - name: portname
    containerPort: 1234

If these sidecars export extra ports, extra port definitions can be added using the *.service.extraPorts parameter (where available), as shown in the example below:

service:
...
  extraPorts:
  - name: extraPort
    port: 11311
    targetPort: 11311

NOTE: VMware Application Catalog Helm charts already include sidecar containers for the Prometheus exporters (where applicable). These can be activated by adding the --enable-metrics=true parameter at deployment time. The sidecars parameter should therefore only be used for any extra sidecar containers.

If additional init containers are needed in the same pod, they can be defined using the *.initContainers parameter. Here is an example:

initContainers:
  - name: your-image-name
    image: your-image
    imagePullPolicy: Always
    ports:
      - name: portname
        containerPort: 1234
