Nerd Humor

Easter eggs in software are not a new thing. And I will always appreciate a good pop culture reference when I find it.

As I was cycling my Kubernetes clusters, I had an issue with some resource contention. Things were not coming up as expected, so I started looking at the Rancher Kubernetes Engine 2 (RKE2) server logs. I ran across this gem:

Apr 03 18:00:07 gk-internal-srv-03b rke2[747]: 2024/04/03 18:00:07 ERROR: [transport] Client received GoAway with error code ENHANCE_YOUR_CALM and debug data equal

While I cannot be certain of the developer’s own reference, my mind immediately went to the Stallone/Snipes classic Demolition Man.

You never know what you’ll find in software.
