[erlang-questions] Lots of epmd in pod

I bet it’s zombie processes - the epmd process is not being reaped.

The epmd will be cleaned up when the pod terminates. 

Docker fixed this by adding an —init option which runs the tini init process

Kubernetes does not start docker containers with this option 

You can use tini as a tiny init process to solve this issue - it’s already an alpine package.
