Kubelet Sync On Demand?

Cluster information:

Kubernetes version: 1.21
Cloud being used: Linode

Hey everyone!

I have a quick question I am hoping to get answered. I’ve been thinking out loud in this twitter thread while I’ve worked on a simple sync project. It’s like Ksync, but using mounted configmaps instead of synchronizing files directly in the docker image.

My question is, can trigger the kubelet synchronization process that updates configmaps on demand, instead of waiting for the 1min interval scheduling of that synchronization?
I would like to do that instead of doing a full pod restart, but I can’t find where that functionality may be available.

Thanks for any help!
