If you are intending to run production workloads on GKE Autopilot then
vm.max_map_count should be set. The recommended way to set this kernel setting on the Autopilot hosts is with a
Daemonset as described in the Virtual memory section. You must be running at least version 1.25 when on the
regular channel or using the
rapid channel, which currently runs version 1.26.
Only use the provided
Daemonset exactly as specified or it could be rejected by the Autopilot control plane.
