Latest 2021 Interview Questions Answers on DevOps

What is DevOps?

By the name DevOps, it‘s very clear that it‘s a collaboration of Development as well as Operations. But one should know that DevOps is not a tool, or a software or framework, DevOps is a Combination of Tools which helps for the automation of whole infrastructure.

DevOps is basically and implementation of Agile methodology on Development side as well as Operations side.

Why do we need DevOps?

To fulfil the need of delivering more and faster and better applications to meet more and more demands of users, we need DevOps. DevOps helps deployment to happen really fast compared to any other traditional tools.

Mention the key aspects or principle behind DevOps?

The key aspects or principle behind DevOps are:

1. Infrastructure as a Code

2. Continuous Integration

3. Continuous Deployment

4. Automation

5. Continuous Monitoring

6. Security

List out some of the popular tools for DevOps?

 Git

 Jenkins

 Gitlab

 Ansible

 Puppet

 Docker

 Kubernetes

 Helm-Charts

 Terraform

 Promethious

 ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana)

What is a version control system?

Version Control System (VCS) is a software that helps software developers to work together and maintain a complete history of their work. Some of the feature of VCS as follows:

1. Allow developers to work simultaneously

2. Does not allow overwriting on each other‘s changes.

3. Maintain the history of every version.

4. There are two types of Version Control Systems:

5. Central Version Control System, Ex: Git, Bitbucket

6. Distributed/Decentralized Version Control System, Ex: SVN What is Git and explain the difference between Git and SVN?


Git is a Decentralized Version Control Tool SVN is a Centralized Version Control Tool

Git contains the local repo as well as the full history of the whole project on all the developers

hard drives, so if there is a server outage , you can easily do recovery from your teammates local

git repo.

SVN relies only on the central server to store all the versions of the project file.

Push and pull operations in are super fast in Git, Push and pull operations are slower compared to

Git (in SVN)

Git belongs to the 3rd generation Version Control Tool, whereas SVN is a 2nd generation

Version Control.

Tools Client nodes can share the entire repositories on their local system, But in SVN Version

history is stored on server-side repositories.

Using Git Commits can be done offline too, however in SVN Commits can be done only online.

Work is shared automatically by commit in Git. Nothing is shared automatically in SVN.

What language is used in Git?

Git is written in C language, and since it‘s written in C language it‘s very fast and reduces the

overhead of runtimes.

What is SubGit?

SubGit is a tool for migrating SVN to Git. It creates a writable Git mirror of a local or remote

Subversion repository and uses both Subversion and Git if you like.

How can you clone a Git repository via Jenkins?

First, we must enter the e-mail and username for your Jenkins system, then switch into your job

directory and execute the ―git config‖ command.

What are the Advantages of Ansible?

1. Agentless, it doesn‘t require any extra package/daemons to be installed

2. Very low overhead

3. Good performance

4. Idempotent

5. Very Easy to learn

6. Declarative not procedural

What‟s the use of Ansible?

Ansible is mainly used in IT infrastructure to manage or deploy applications to remote nodes.

Let‘s say we want to deploy one application in 100‘s of nodes by just executing one

command, then Ansible is the one actually coming into the image but should have some

knowledge on Ansible script to understand or execute the same.

What‟s the difference between Ansible Playbook and Roles?

Roles are reusable subsets of a play. Playbooks contain Plays.

Role is a set of tasks for accomplishing a certain role. Playbooks, Mapps among hosts and roles.

Example: common, webservers. Example: site.yml, fooservers.yml, webservers.yml

How do I see a list of all the ansible_ variables?

Ansible by default gathers ―facts‖ about the machines, and these facts can be accessed in

Playbooks and in templates. To see a list of all the facts that are available about a machine, you

can run the ―setup‖ module as an ad-hoc action:

Ansible -m setup hostname

This will print out a dictionary of all the facts that are available for that particular host.

What is Docker?

Docker is a containerization technology that packages your application and all its dependencies

together in the form of Containers to ensure that your application works seamlessly in any


What is Docker image?

Docker image is the source of Docker container. Or in other words, Docker images are used to

create containers.

What is a Docker Container?

Docker Container is the running instance of Docker Image.

Can we consider DevOps as Agile methodology?

Of Course, we can!! The only difference between agile methodology and DevOps is that, agile

methodology is implemented only for the development section and DevOps implements agility

on both development as well as operations section.

What are the advantages of using Git?

1. Data redundancy and replication

2. High availability

3. Only one. git directory per repository

4. Superior disk utilization and network performance

5. Collaboration friendly

6. Git can use any sort of projects.

What is kernel?

A kernel is the lowest level of easily replaceable software that interfaces with the hardware in

your computer.

What is the difference between grep -i and grep -v?

I ignore alphabet difference V accept this value

ex) ls | grep -i docker

 Dockerfile

 docker.tar.gz

 ls | grep -v docker

 Desktop

 Dockerfile

 Documents

 Downloads

You can‘t see anything with name docker.tar.gz

How can you define particular space to the file

This feature is generally used to give the swap space to the server. Let‘s say in below machine I 

have to create swap space of 1GB then,

dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile1 bs=1G count=1

What is the concept of sudo in Linux?

Sudo(superuser do) is a utility for UNIX- and Linux-based systems that provides an efficient 

way to give specific users permission to use specific system commands at the root (most 

powerful) level of the system.

What is a Jenkins Pipeline? Jenkins Pipeline (or simply ―Pipeline‖) is a suite of 

plugins which supports implementing and integrating continuous delivery pipelines into Jenkins.

How to stop and restart the Docker container?

To stop the container: docker stop container ID

Now to restart the Docker container: docker restart container ID

What platforms does Docker run on?

Docker runs on only Linux and Cloud platforms:

1. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS+

2. Fedora 20+

3. RHEL 6.5+

4. CentOS 6+

5. Gentoo

6. ArchLinux

7. openSUSE 12.3+

8. CRUX 3.0+

9. Amazon EC2

10. Google Compute Engine

11. Microsoft Azure

12. Rackspace

Note that Docker does not run on Windows or Mac for production as there is no support, yes you 

can use it for testing purpose even in windows

What are the tools used for docker networking?

For docker networking we generally use kubernetes and docker swarm.

What is docker compose?

Let‘s say you want to run multiple docker containers, at that time you have to create the docker-

compose file and type the command docker-compose up. It will run all the containers mentioned 

in docker compose file.

What is Scrum?

Scrum is basically used to divide your complex software and product development task into 

smaller chunks, using iterations and incremental practises. Each iteration is of two weeks. Scrum 

consists of three roles: Product owner, scrum master and Team

What does the commit object contain?

Commit object contain the following components:

It contains a set of files, representing the state of a project at a given point of time reference to 

parent commit objects

An SHAI name, a 40-character string that uniquely identifies the commit object (also called as 


Explain the difference between git pull and git fetch?

Git pull command basically pulls any new changes or commits from a branch from your central 

repository and updates your target branch in your local repository.

Git fetch is also used for the same purpose, but it‘s slightly different from Git pull. When you 

trigger a git fetch, it pulls all new commits from the desired branch and stores it in a new branch 

in your local repository. If we want to reflect these changes in your target branch, git fetch must 

be followed with a git merge. Our target branch will only be updated after merging the target 

branch and fetched branch. Just to make it easy for us, remember the equation below:

Git pull = git fetch + git merge

How do we know in Git if a branch has already been merged 

into master?

git branch –merged

The above command lists the branches that have been merged into the current branch.

git branch –no-merged

This command lists the branches that have not been merged.

What is „Staging Area‟ or „Index‟ in GIT?

Before committing a file, it must be formatted and reviewed in an intermediate area known as 


Area‘ or ‗Indexing Area‘.

#git add <file_name>

What is Git Stash?

Let‘s say you‘ve been working on part of your project, things are in a messy state and you want 

to switch branches for some time to work on something else. The problem is, you don‘t want to 

commit your half-done work just, so you can get back to this point later. The answer to this issue 

is Git stash.

Git Stashing takes your working directory, that is, your modified tracked files and staged 

changes and saves it on a stack of unfinished changes that you can reapply at any time.

What is Git stash drop?

Git ‗stash drop‘ command is basically used to remove the stashed item. It will basically remove 

the last added stash item by default, and it can also remove a specific item if you include it as an 


I have provided an example below:

If you want to remove any particular stash item from the list of stashed items you can use the 

below commands:

git stash list: It will display the list of stashed items as follows:

stash@{0}: WIP on master: 049d080 added the index file

stash@{1}: WIP on master: c265351 Revert ―added files‖

stash@{2}: WIP on master: 13d80a5 added number to log

What is the function of „git config‟?

Git uses our username to associate commits with an identity. The git config command can be

used to change our Git configuration, including your username.

Suppose you want to give a username and email id to associate commit with an identity so that

you can know who has made a commit. For that I will use:

git config –global user.name ―Your Name‖: This command will add your username.

git config –global user.email ―Your E-mail Address‖: This command will add your email id.

How can you create a repository in Git?

To create a repository, you must create a directory for the project if it does not exist, then run the

command ―git init‖. By running this command .git directory will be created inside the project


Describe the branching strategies you have used?

Generally, they ask this question to understand your branching knowledge.

Feature branching

This model keeps all the changes for a feature inside of a branch. When the feature branch is

fully tested and validated by automated tests, the branch is then merged into master.

Task branching

In this task branching model each task is implemented on its own branch with the task key

included in the branch name. It is quite easy to see which code implements which task, just look

for the task key in the branch name.

Release branching

Once the develop branch has acquired enough features for a release, then we can clone that

branch to form a Release branch. Creating this release branch starts the next release cycle, so no

new features can be added after this point, only bug fixes, documentation generation, and other

release-oriented tasks should go in this branch. Once it‘s ready to ship, the release gets merged

into master and then tagged with a version number. In addition, it should be merged back into the

develop branch, which may have progressed since the release was initiated earlier.

What is Jenkins?

Jenkins is an open source continuous integration tool which is written in Java language. It keeps

a track on the version control system and to initiate and monitor a build system if any changes

occur. It monitors the whole process and provides reports and notifications to alert the concern


What is the difference between Maven, Ant and Jenkins?

Maven and Ant are Build Technologies whereas Jenkins is a continuous integration(CI/CD)


Explain what is continuous integration?

When multiple developers or teams are working on different segments of the same web

application, we need to perform integration tests by integrating all the modules. To do that an

automated process for each piece of code is performed on daily bases so that all your code gets

tested. And this whole process is termed as continuous integration.

What is the relation between Hudson and Jenkins?

Hudson was the earlier name of current Jenkins. After some issues were faced, the project name

was changed from Hudson to Jenkins.

What are the advantages of Jenkins?

Advantage of using Jenkins

1. Bug tracking is easy at an early stage in a development environment.

2. Provides a very large number of plugin support.

3. Iterative improvement to the code, code is basically divided into small sprints.

4. Build failures are cached at integration stage.

5. For each code commit change an automatic build report notification gets generated.

6. To notify developers about build report success or failure, it can be integrated with LDAP

mail server.

7. Achieves continuous integration agile development and test-driven development


8. With simple steps, maven release projects can also be automated.

Which SCM tools does Jenkins support?

Source code management tools supported by Jenkins are below:

1. AccuRev

2. CVS

3. Subversion

4. Git

5. Mercurial

6. Perforce

7. Clearcase

8. RTC and many more

What is Ansible?

Ansible is a software configuration management tool to deploy an application using SSH without

any downtime. It is also used for management and configuration of software applications.

Ansible is developed in Python language.

How can you set up Jenkins jobs?

Steps to set up Jenkins job as follows:

Select new item from the menu.

After that enter a name for the job (it can be anything) and select a free-style job.

Then click OK to create a new job in Jenkins dashboard.

The next page enables you to configure your job, and it‘s done.

What are your daily activities in your current role?

Working on JIRA Tickets

Builds and Deployments

Resolving issues when builds and deployments fails by coordinating and collaborating with the

dev team

Infrastructure maintenance

Monitoring health of applications

Evaluating new technologies to make software delivery faster, secure and easier etc..

What are the challenges you faced in recent times?

I need to implement trending technologies like Docker to automate the configuration

management activities in my project by showing POC.

What are the build and deployment failures you got and how

did you resolve those?

I used to get most of the time out of memory issues. So I fixed this issue by restarting the server

which is not best practice. I did the permanent fix by increasing the PermGen Space and Heap

24. fi

25. i=`expr $i + 1`

26. done

How to pass the parameters to the script and how can I get

those parameters?

Scriptname.sh parameter1 parameter2

I will use $* to get the parameters.

What are the default file permissions for the file and how

can I modify it?

Default file permissions are : rw-r—r—

If I want to change the default file permissions I need to use umask command ex: umask 666

How will you do the releases?

There are some steps to follow.

 Create a checklist

 Create a release branch

 Bump the version

 Merge release branch to master & tag it.

 Use a Pull request to merge the release merge

 Deploy master to Prod Environment

 Merge back into develop & delete release branch

 Change log generation

 Communicating with stakeholders

 Grooming the issue tracker

How do you automate the whole build and release process?

 Check out a set of source code files.

 Compile the code and report on progress along the way.

 Run automated unit tests against successful compiles.

 Create an installer.

 Publish the installer to a download site, and notify teams that the installer is available.

 Run the installer to create an installed executable.

 Run automated tests against the executable.

 Report the results of the tests.

 Launch a subordinate project to update standard libraries.

 Promote executables and other files to QA for further testing.

 Deploy finished releases to production environments, such as Web servers or CD


The above process will be done by Jenkins by creating the jobs.

I have 50 jobs in the Jenkins dashboard, I want to build at a

time all the jobs

In Jenkins there is a plugin called build after other projects build. We can provide job names over

there and If one parent job runs then it will automatically run all other jobs. Or we can use

Pipeline jobs.

How can I integrate all the tools with Jenkins?

I have to manage Jenkins and then global tool configurations. There you have to provide all the

details such as Git URL , Java version, Maven version, Path etc.

How to install Jenkins via Docker?

The steps are:

 Open up a terminal window.

 Download the jenkinsci/blueocean image & run it as a container in Docker using the

following docker

 Accessing the Jenkins console log through Docker logsdocker logs

 <docker-container-name>Accessing

 the Jenkins home directorydocker exec -it <docker-container-name> bash

Did you ever participate in Prod Deployments? If yes, what

is the procedure?

Yes I have participated, we need to follow the following steps in my point of view

Preparation & Planning : What kind of system/technology was supposed to run on what kind

of machine. The specifications regarding the clustering of systems. How all these stand-alone

boxes were going to talk to each other in a foolproof manner. Production setup should be

documented to bits. It needs to be neat, foolproof, and understandable.

It should have all the system configurations, IP addresses, system specifications, & installation

instructions. It needs to be updated as & when any change is made to the production environment

of the system

My application is not coming up for some reason? How can

you bring it up?

We need to follow the steps:

 Network connection

 The Web Server is not receiving user‘s request

 Checking the logs

 Checking the process id‘s whether services are running or not

 The Application Server is not receiving user‘s request(Check the Application Server

Logs and Processes)

 A network level ‗connection reset‘ is happening somewhere.

Did you automate anything in your project? Please explain

Yes I have automated couple of things such as:

 Password expiry automation

 Deleting the older log files

 Code quality threshold violations etc.

What is IaC? How will you achieve this?

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is the management of infrastructure (networks, virtual machines,

load balancers, and connection topology) in a descriptive model, using the same versioning as

the DevOps team uses for source code. This will be achieved by using the tools such as Chef,

Puppet and Ansible etc.

What is multifactor authentication? What is the use of it?

Multifactor Authentication (MFA) is a security system that requires more than one method of

authentication from independent categories of credentials to verify the user‘s identity for a login

or other transaction.

 Security for every enterprise user — end & privileged users, internal and external

 Protect across enterprise resources — cloud & on-prem apps, VPNs, endpoints, servers,

privilege elevation and more

 Reduce cost & complexity with an integrated identity platform

I want to copy the artifacts from one location to another

location in the cloud. How?

Create two S3 buckets, one to use as the source, and the other to use as the destination and then

create policies.

How can I modify the commit message in git?

I have to use the following command and enter the required message.

Git commit –amend

How can you avoid the waiting time for the triggered jobs in


First I will check the Slave nodes capacity, If it is fully loaded then I will add the slave node by

doing the following process.

Go to the Jenkins dashboard -> Manage Jenkins ->Manage Nodes

Create the new node a By giving the all required fields and launch the slave machine as you


What are the Pros and Cons of Ansible?


1. Open Source

2. Agent less

3. Improved efficiency , reduce cost

4. Less Maintenance

5. Easy to understand yaml files


1. Underdeveloped GUI with limited features

2. Increased focus on orchestration over configuration management

3. SSH communication slows down in scaled environments

How do you handle merge conflicts in git?

Follow the steps

 Create Pull request

 Modify according to the requirement by sitting with developers

 Commit the correct file to the branch

 Merge the current branch with the master branch.

I want to delete 10 days older log files. How can I?

There is a command in unix to achieve this task find <directory_path> -mtime +10 -name

―*.log‖ -exec

rm -f {} \; 2>/dev/null

How do you get the Inventory variables defined for the host?

We need to use the following command:

Ansible – m debug- a ―var=hostvars[‗hostname‘]‖ localhost(

How will you take backup for Jenkins?

Copy JENKINS_HOME directory and ―jobs‖ directory to replicate it in another server

How to deploy docker containers to aws?

Amazon provides the service called Amazon Elastic Container Service; By using this creating

and configuring the task definition and services we will launch the applications.

I want to change the default port number of apache tomcat.


Go to the tomcat folder and navigate to the conf folder there you will find a server.xml file. You

can change the connector port tag as you want.

In how many ways can you install the Jenkins?

We can install Jenkins in 3 Ways:

1. By downloading Jenkins archive file

2. By running as a service Java –jar Jenkins.war

3. By deploying Jenkins.war to the webapps folder in tomcat.

How will you run Jenkins job from the command line?

We have a Jenkins CLI from there we need to use the curl command:



How will you do tagging in git?

We have following command to create tags in git Git tag v0.1

How can you connect a container to a network when it


We need to use a following command:

docker run -itd –network=multi-host-network busybox

How will you code commit and code deploy in the cloud?

 Create a deployment environment

 Get a copy of the sample code

 Create your pipeline

 Activate your pipeline

 Commit a change and update the App.

How to access variable names in Ansible?

Using hostvars method we can access and add the variables like below:

{{ hostvars[inventory_hostname][‗ansible_‘ + which_interface][‗ipv4‘][‗address‘] }}

What is Infrastructure as Code?

Where the Configuration of any servers or tool chain or application stack required for an

association can be made into progressively elucidating dimension of code and that can be utilized

for provisioning and overseeing foundation components like Virtual Machine, Software,

Network Elements, however it varies from contents utilizing any language, where they are a

progression of static advances coded, where Version control can be utilized so as to follow

condition changes . Precedent Tools are Ansible, Terraform.

What are the zones the Version control can acquire to get

proficient DevOps practice?

A clearly fundamental region of Version Control is Source code the executives, Where each

engineer code ought to be pushed to a typical storehouse for keeping up assemble and discharge

in CI/CD pipelines. Another territory can be Version control For Administrators when they use

Infrastructure as A Code (IAC) apparatuses and rehearses for keeping up The Environment

setup. Another Area of Version Control framework Can be Artifactory Management Using

Repositories like Nexus and DockerHub

Why do Open Source apparatuses support DevOps?

Open Source devices dominatingly utilized by any association which is adjusting (or) embraced

DevOps pipelines in light of the fact that devops accompanied an attention on robotization in

different parts of association manufacture and discharge and change the executives and

furthermore framework the board zones.

So creating or utilizing a solitary apparatus is unthinkable and furthermore everything is

fundamentally an experimentation period of advancement and furthermore coordinated chops

down the advantage of building up a solitary device , so opensource devices were accessible

available practically spares each reason and furthermore gives association a choice to assess the

device dependent on their need.


What is the distinction between Ansible and chef (or)


Ansible is Agentless design the board device, where puppet or gourmet expert needs operator

should be kept running on the specialist hub and chef or puppet depends on draw demonstrate,

where your cookbook or show for gourmet expert and puppet separately from the ace will be

pulled by the operator and ansible uses ssh to convey and it gives information driven guidelines

to the hubs should be overseen , progressively like RPC execution, ansible utilizations YAML

scripting, though puppet (or) chef is worked by ruby uses their own DSL .

What is Jinja2 templating in ansible playbooks and their


Jinja2 templating is the Python standard for templating , consider it like a sed editorial manager

for Ansible , where it very well may be utilized is when there is a requirement for dynamic

change of any config record to any application like consider mapping a MySQL application to

the IP address of the machine, where it is running, it can‘t be static , it needs modifying it

progressively at runtime. Arrangement. The vars inside the supports are supplanted by ansible

while running utilizing layout module.

What is the requirement for sorting out playbooks as the

job, is it vital?

Arranging playbooks as jobs , gives greater clarity and reusability to any plays , while consider

an errand where MySQL establishment ought to be done after the evacuation of Oracle DB , and

another prerequisite is expected to introduce MySQL after java establishment, in the two cases

we have to introduce MySQL , yet without jobs need to compose playbooks independently for

both use cases , yet utilizing jobs once the MySQL establishment job is made can be used any

number of times by summoning utilizing rationale in site.yaml .

No, it isn‘t important to make jobs for each situation, however making jobs is the best practice in


What is the fundamental disservice of Docker holders?

As the lifetime of any compartments is while pursuing a holder is wrecked you can‘t recover any

information inside a compartment, the information inside a compartment is lost perpetually,

however tenacious capacity for information inside compartments should be possible utilizing

volumes mounted to an outer source like host machine and any NFS drivers.

What are the docker motor and docker form?

Docker motor contacts the docker daemon inside the machine and makes the runtime condition

and procedure for any compartment, docker make connects a few holders to shape as a stack

utilized in making application stacks like LAMP, WAMP, XAMP

What are the Different modes a holder can be run?

Docker holder can be kept running in two modes Connected: Where it will be kept running in the

forefront of the framework you are running, gives a terminal inside to compartment when – t

choice is utilized with it, where each log will be diverted to stdout screen.

Isolates: This mode is typically kept running underway, where the holder is confined as a

foundation procedure and each yield inside a compartment will be diverted log records

inside/var/lib/docker/logs/<container-id>/<container-id.json> and which can be seen by docker

logs order.

What will the yield of docker assess order be?

Docker examines <container-id> will give yield in JSON position, which contains subtleties like

the IP address of the compartment inside the docker virtual scaffold and volume mount data and

each other data identified with host (or) holder explicitly like the basic document driver utilized,

log driver utilized.

docker investigate [OPTIONS] NAME|ID [NAME|ID…]

Choices Name, shorthand Default Description

group, – f Format the yield utilizing the given Go layout

measure, – s Display all out document sizes if the sort is the compartment type Return JSON for

a predefined type

What order can be utilized to check the asset usage by

docker holders?

Docker details order can be utilized to check the asset usage of any docker holder, it gives the

yield practically equivalent to Top direction in Linux, it shapes the base for compartment asset

observing instruments like a counsel, which gets yield from docker details order.

docker details [OPTIONS] [CONTAINER…]

Choices Name, shorthand Default Description

all, – a Show all holders (default demonstrates simply running)

group Pretty-print images utilizing a Go layout

no-stream Disable spilling details and just draw the main outcome

no-trunc Do not truncate yield

How to execute some errand (or) play on localhost just while

executing playbooks in various ways on ansible?

In ansible, there is a module called delegate_to, in this module area give the specific host (or)

where your errands (or) assignment should be run. undertakings:

name: ‖ Elasticsearch Hitting‖

uri: url=‘_search?q=status:new‘ headers='{―Content-type‖:‖application/json‖}‘ method=GET


register: yield


What is the distinction between set_fact and vars in ansible?

Where a set_fact sets the incentive for a factor at one time and stays static, despite the fact that

the esteem is very powerful and vars continue changing according to the esteem continues

changing for the variable.



fact_time: ―Truth: ‖

troubleshoot: var=fact_time

order: rest 2

troubleshoot: var=fact_time


name: queries in factors versus queries in realities

has: localhost


var_time: ―Var: ‖

Despite the fact that the query for the date has been utilized in both the cases, wherein the vars

are utilized it modifies dependent on an opportunity to time each time executed inside the

playbook lifetime. Be that as it may, Fact dependably continues as before once query is finished

What is a query in ansible and what are query modules

bolstered by ansible?

Query modules enable access to information in Ansible from outside sources. These modules are

assessed on the Ansible control machine and can incorporate perusing the filesystem yet in

addition reaching outside information stores and administrations.

Organization is {lookup{‗<plugin>‘,'<source(or)connection_string>‘}}

A portion of the query modules upheld by ansible are Document



jinja layouts

etcd kv store

How might you erase the docker images put away at your

nearby machine and how might you do it for every one of the

images without a moment‟s delay?

The direction docker RMI <image-id> can be utilized to erase the docker image from nearby

machine, though a few images may should be constrained in light of the fact that the image

might be utilized by some other holder (or) another image , to erase images you can utilize the

mix of directions by docker RMI $(docker images – q), where docker images will give the

docker image names, to get just the ID of docker images just , we are utilizing – q switch with

docker images order.

What are the organizers in the Jenkins establishment and

their job?

JENKINS_HOME – which will be/$JENKINS_USER/.jenkins it is the root envelope of any

Jenkins establishment and it contains subfolders each for various purposes.

jobs/ – Folder contains all the data pretty much every one of the occupations arranged in the

Jenkins example.

Inside jobs/, you will have the envelope made for each activity and inside those organizers, you

will have fabricate organizers as indicated by each form number each form will have its log

records, which we see in Jenkins web support.

Modules/ – where all your modules will be recorded.

Workspace/ – this will be available to hold all the workspace documents like your source code

pulled from SCM.

Q98) What are the approaches to design Jenkins framework?

Jenkins can be designed in two different ways

Web: Where there is a choice called design a framework, in their area, you can make all setup


Manual on filesystem: Where each change should likewise be possible straightforwardly on the

Jenkins config.xml document under the Jenkins establishment catalog, after you make changes

on the filesystem, you have to restart your Jenkins, either can do it specifically from terminal (or)

you can utilize. Reload setup from plate under Jenkins menu or you can hit/restart endpoint


What is the job Of HTTP REST API in DevOps?

As DevOps is absolutely centers around Automating your framework and gives changes over the

pipeline to various stages like an every CI/CD pipeline will have stages like form, test, mental

soundness test, UAT, Deployment to Prod condition similarly as with each phase there are

diverse devices is utilized and distinctive innovation stack is displayed and there should be an

approach to incorporate with various instrument for finishing an arrangement toolchain, there

comes a requirement for HTTP API , where each apparatus speaks with various devices utilizing 

API , and even client can likewise utilize SDK to interface with various devices like BOTOX for 

Python to contact AWS API‘s for robotization dependent on occasions , these days its not cluster 

handling any longer , it is generally occasion driven pipelines

What are Micro services, and how do they control proficient 

DevOps rehearses?

Where In conventional engineering , each application is stone monument application implies that 

anything is created by a gathering of designers, where it has been sent as a solitary application in 

numerous machines and presented to external world utilizing load balances, where the micro 

services implies separating your application into little pieces, where each piece serves the 

distinctive capacities expected to finish a solitary exchange and by separating , designers can 

likewise be shaped to gatherings and each bit of utilization may pursue diverse rules for 

proficient advancement stage, as a result of spry improvement ought to be staged up a bit and 

each administration utilizes REST API (or) Message lines to convey between another 

administration. So manufacture and arrival of a non-strong form may not influence the entire 

design, rather, some usefulness is lost, that gives the confirmation to productive and quicker 

CI/CD pipelines and DevOps Practices.

What are the manners in which a pipeline can be made in 


There are two different ways of a pipeline can be made in Jenkins Scripted Pipelines:

 Progressively like a programming approach

 Explanatory pipelines:

 DSL approach explicitly to make Jenkins pipelines.

 The pipeline ought to be made in Jenkins document and the area can be in SCM.

Definitive and Scripted Pipelines are developed on a very basic level in an unexpected way. 

Definitive Pipeline is a later element of Jenkins Pipeline which: gives more extravagant 

grammatical highlights over Scripted Pipeline language structure, and is intended to make 

composing and perusing Pipeline code less demanding.

What are the Labels in Jenkins and where it tends to be 


Similarly as with CI/CD arrangement should be concentrated , where each application in the 

association can be worked by a solitary CI/CD server , so in association there might be various 

types of utilization like java, c#,.NET and so forth, likewise with microservices approach your 

programming stack is inexactly coupled for the task , so you can have Labeled in every hub and

course, callback modules control a large portion of the yield you see when running the direction 

line programs, however can likewise be utilized to include an extra yield, coordinate with 

different apparatuses and marshall the occasions to a capacity backend. So at whatever point a 

play is executed and after it creates a few occasions, those occasions are imprinted onto the 

Stdout screen, so the callback module can be put into any capacity backend for log preparation. 

Model callback modules are ansible-logstash, where each playbook execution is brought by 

logstash in the JSON group and can be incorporated in some other backend source like 


What are the scripting scripts that can be utilized in 


As with scripting scripts, the fundamental shell scripting is utilized to construct ventures in 

Jenkins pipelines and python contents can be utilized with some other devices like Ansible , 

terraform as a wrapper content for some other complex choice unraveling undertakings in any 

mechanization as python is more unrivaled in complex rational deduction than shell contents and 

ruby contents can likewise be utilized as fabricate ventures in Jenkins.

What is Continuous Monitoring and why checking is basic in 


DevOps draws out each association capacity of fabricate and discharge cycle to be a lot shorter 

with an idea of CI/CD, where each change is reflected into generation conditions fastly, so it 

should be firmly observed to get client input. So the idea of constant checking has been utilized 

to assess every application execution progressively (at any rate Near Real Time) , where every 

application is produced with application execution screen specialists perfect and the granular 

dimension of measurements are taken out like JVM details and even practical savvy 

measurements inside the application can likewise be spilled out progressively to Agents , which 

thusly provides for any backend stockpiling and that can be utilized by observing groups in 

dashboards and cautions to get persistently screen the application.

Give a few instances of persistent observing instruments?

Where numerous persistent observing instruments are accessible in the market, where utilized for 

an alternate sort of use and sending model Docker compartments can be checked by consultant 

operator, which can be utilized by Elasticsearch to store measurements (or) you can utilize TICK 

stack (Telegraph, influxdb, Chronograph, Capacitor) for each framework observing in NRT(Near 

Real Time) and You can utilize Logstash (or) Beats to gather Logs from framework , which 

thusly can utilize Elasticsearch as Storage Backend can utilize Kibana (or) Grafana as visualizer.

The framework observing should be possible by Nagios and Icinga.

different instruments and marshall the occasions to a capacity backend. So at whatever point a

play is executed and after it delivers a few occasions, those occasions are imprinted onto the

Stdout screen, so the callback module can be put into any capacity backend for log handling.

Precedent callback modules are ansible-logstash, where each playbook execution is gotten by

logstash in the JSON position and can be incorporated in some other backend source like


What scripting languages can be utilized in DevOps?

As with scripting languages, the fundamental shell scripting is utilized to assemble ventures in

Jenkins pipelines and python contents can be utilized with some other instruments like Ansible.

For what reason is each instrument in DevOps generally has

some DSL (Domain Specific Language)?

Devops is a culture created to address the necessities of lithe procedure, where the advancement

rate is quicker ,so sending should coordinate its speed and that needs activities group to arrange

and work with dev group, where everything can computerize utilizing content based , however it

feels more like tasks group than , it gives chaotic association of any pipelines, more the

utilization cases , more the contents should be composed , so there are a few use cases, which

will be sufficient to cover the requirements of light-footed are taken and apparatuses are made by

that and customization can occur over the device utilizing DSL to mechanize the DevOps

practice and Infra the board.

be utilized to accomplish relentless capacity?

Docker volumes are the filesystem mount focuses made by client for a compartment or a volume

can be utilized by numerous holders, and there are distinctive sorts of volume mount accessible

void dir, Post mount, AWS upheld lbs volume, Azure volume, Google Cloud (or) even NFS,

CIFS filesystems, so a volume ought to be mounted to any of the outer drives to accomplish

determined capacity, in light of the fact that a lifetime of records inside compartment, is as yet

the holder is available and if holder is erased, the information would be lost.

What Artifacts store can be incorporated with Jenkins?

Any sort of Artifacts vault can be coordinated with Jenkins, utilizing either shell directions (or)

devoted modules, some of them are Nexus, Jfrog.

What are a portion of the testing apparatuses that can be

coordinated with Jenkins and notice their modules?

Sonar module – can be utilized to incorporate testing of Code quality in your source code.

Execution module – this can be utilized to incorporate JMeter execution testing.

Junit – to distribute unit test reports.

Selenium module – can be utilized to incorporate selenium for computerization testing.

What are the build triggers accessible in Jenkins?

Fabricates can be run physically (or) either can naturally be activated by various sources like

Webhooks – The webhooks are API calls from SCM, at whatever point a code is submitted into

a vault (or) should be possible for explicit occasions into explicit branches.

Gerrit code survey trigger – Gerrit is an open source code audit instrument, at whatever point a

code change is endorsed after the audit construct can be activated.

Trigger Build Remotely – You can have remote contents in any machine (or) even AWS 

lambda capacities (or) make a post demand to trigger forms in Jenkins. Calendar Jobs-Jobs can 

likewise be booked like Cron occupations.

Survey SCM for changes – Where your Jenkins searches for any progressions in SCM for the 

given interim, if there is a change, a build can be activated.

Upstream and Downstream Jobs – Where a construct can be activated by another activity that 

is executed already.

How to Version control Docker images?

Docker images can be form controlled utilizing Tags, where you can relegate the tag to any 

image utilizing docker tag <image-id> order. Furthermore, on the off chance that you are 

pushing any docker center library without labeling the default label would be doled out which is 

most recent, regardless of whether an image with the most recent is available, it indicates that 

image without the tag and reassign that to the most recent push image.

What is the utilization of the Timestamper module in 


It adds Timestamp to each line to the comfort yield of the assembler.

Why you ought not execute an expansion on ace?

You can run an expand on ace in Jenkins , yet it isn‘t prudent, in light of the fact that the ace as 

of now has the duty of planning assembles and getting incorporate yields with JENKINS_HOME 

index, so on the off chance that we run an expand on Jenkins ace, at that point it furthermore 

needs to manufacture apparatuses, and workspace for source code, so it puts execution over-

burden in the framework, if the Jenkins ace accidents, it expands the downtime of your fabricate 

and discharge cycle.

What are The Most Important Things DevOps Helps Us


The most important thing that the DevOps helps us achieve is to get the changes into production

as quickly as possible while minimizing risks in software quality assurance and compliance. This

is the primary objective of DevOps.

For example clear communication and better working relationships between teams i.e. both of

the Ops team and Dev team collaborate together to deliver good quality software which in turn

leads to higher customer satisfaction.

How Can Make a Sure New Service Is Ready For The

Products Launched?

 Backup System

 Recovery plans

 Load Balancing

 Monitoring

 Centralized logging

How do All These Tools Work Together?

Given below is a generic logic of the flow where everything gets automated for seamless

delivery. However, its flow may vary from organization to the organization as per the

requirement. Developers develop the code and this source code is managed by the Version

Control System of the tools like Git etc. Developers send to this code of the Git repository and

any changes made in the code are committed to this Repository.

Jenkins pulls this code from the repository using the Git plugin and builds it using tools like Ant

or Maven. Configuration management tools like puppet deploy & provisions testing environment

and then Jenkins releases this code on the test to the environment on which testing is done using

tools like selenium.

Once the code is tested, Jenkins sends it for the deployment on production to the server (even

production servers are provisioned & maintained by tools like puppet). After deployment Its

continuously monitored by tools like Nagios. Docker containers provide a testing environment to

test the build features.

Which Are The Top Devops Tools?

The most popular DevOps tools are mentioned below

 Git Version Control System tool

 Jenkins Continuous Integration tool

 Selenium Continuous Testing tool

 Puppet, Chef, Ansible are Configuration Management and Deployment tools

 Nagios Continuous Monitoring tool

 Docker Containerization tool

How to DevOps Different From Agile & SDLC?

Agile are the set of the values and principles about how to produce i.e. develop software.

Example if you have some ideas and you want to turn those ideas into working software, you can

use the Agile values as principles as a way to do that. But, that software might only be working

on a developer‘s laptop or in a test environment. You want a way to quickly, easily and

repeatedly move that software into the production infrastructure, in a safe and simple way. To do

that you need DevOps tools and techniques.

You can summarize by saying Agile of the software development methodology focuses on the

development for software but DevOps on the other hand is responsible for the development as

well as deployment of the software to the safest and most reliable way possible. Here‘s a blog

that will give you more information on the evolutions of DevOps.

What Is The Need For DevOps?

According to me, this should start by explaining the general market trend. Instead of releasing

big sets of the features, companies are trying to see if small features can be transported to their

customers through a series of release trains. This has many advantages like quick feedback from

the customers, better quality of the software etc. which in turn leads to high customer


To achieve this, companies are required to:

 Increase deployment frequency

 Lower failure rate of new releases

 Shortened lead time between fixes

 Faster mean time to recovery of the event of new release crashing

What is meant by Continuous Integration?

It‘s the development practice that requires developers to integrate code into a shared repository

several times a day. Each check-in is then verified by an automated build, allowing teams to

detect problems early.

Mention some of the useful plugins in Jenkins.

Below, I have mentioned some important are Plugins:

 Maven 2 project

 Amazon EC2

 HTML publisher

 Copy artifact

 Join

 Green Balls

What is Version control?

It‘s the system that records changes to the file or set of the files over time so that you can recall

specific versions later.
