Notes on gossip support

  • We use weave mesh's gossip functionality, which supports gossip of a CRDT
  • protokube listens on
  • dns-controller listens on
  • The seed for dns-controller is protokube, discovered on
  • The real seeding is done by protokube, which currently finds peers by querying the cloud provider


  • We implement a dnsprovider backed by our local gossip state
  • We write to /etc/hosts; this is sort of hacky but avoids the need for a custom local resolver
