How to mount subdirectory in Kubernetes

This document shows how to mount with subdirectory in Kubernetes.

Using subPath

The community edition and the cloud service edition are used in the same way.

You can use subPath in PV:

apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolume
metadata:
name: juicefs-pv
labels:
juicefs-name: ten-pb-fs
spec:
capacity:
storage: 10Pi
volumeMode: Filesystem
accessModes:
- ReadWriteMany
persistentVolumeReclaimPolicy: Retain
csi:
driver: csi.juicefs.com
volumeHandle: test-bucket
fsType: juicefs
nodePublishSecretRef:
name: juicefs-secret
namespace: default
volumeAttributes:
subPath: fluentd

Apply PVC and sample pod as follows:

apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolumeClaim
metadata:
name: juicefs-pvc
namespace: default
spec:
accessModes:
- ReadWriteMany
volumeMode: Filesystem
storageClassName: ""
resources:
requests:
storage: 10Pi
selector:
matchLabels:
juicefs-name: ten-pb-fs
---
apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
name: juicefs-app-subpath
namespace: default
spec:
containers:
- args:
- -c
- while true; do echo $(date -u) >> /data/out.txt; sleep 5; done
command:
- /bin/sh
image: centos
name: app
volumeMounts:
- mountPath: /data
name: data
resources:
requests:
cpu: 10m
volumes:
- name: data
persistentVolumeClaim:
claimName: juicefs-pvc

After the configuration is applied, verify that pod is running:

kubectl get pods juicefs-app-subpath

Also you can verify that data is written onto JuiceFS file system:

kubectl exec -ti juicefs-app-subpath -- tail -f /data/out.txt

Using subdir

If you are using the cloud service edition, and the token you use only has permission for subdirectory, you can use the following methods, only need to specify subdir=xxx in mountOptions:

apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolume
metadata:
name: juicefs-pv
labels:
juicefs-name: ten-pb-fs
spec:
capacity:
storage: 10Pi
volumeMode: Filesystem
accessModes:
- ReadWriteMany
persistentVolumeReclaimPolicy: Retain
csi:
driver: csi.juicefs.com
volumeHandle: test-bucket
fsType: juicefs
nodePublishSecretRef:
name: juicefs-secret
namespace: default
mountOptions:
- subdir=/test

Apply PVC and sample pod as follows:

apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolumeClaim
metadata:
name: juicefs-pvc
namespace: default
spec:
accessModes:
- ReadWriteMany
volumeMode: Filesystem
storageClassName: ""
resources:
requests:
storage: 10Pi
selector:
matchLabels:
juicefs-name: ten-pb-fs
---
apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
name: juicefs-app-subpath
namespace: default
spec:
containers:
- args:
- -c
- while true; do echo $(date -u) >> /data/out.txt; sleep 5; done
command:
- /bin/sh
image: centos
name: app
volumeMounts:
- mountPath: /data
name: data
resources:
requests:
cpu: 10m
volumes:
- name: data
persistentVolumeClaim:
claimName: juicefs-pvc
