Network Addon Compatibility

Generally speaking, MetalLB doesn’t care which network addon you choose to run in your cluster, as long as it provides the standard behaviors that Kubernetes expects from network addons.

The following is a list of network addons that have been tested with MetalLB, for your reference. The list is presented in alphabetical order, we express no preference for one addon over another.

Addons that are not on this list probably work, we just haven’t tested them. Please send us a patch if you have information on network addons that aren’t listed!

Network addon Compatible

Cilium Yes
