Matchmaker requests a GameServer from a Fleet

This is the preferred workflow for a GameServer, in which an external matchmaker requests an allocation from one or more Fleets using a GameServerAllocation.

Sample GameServerAllocation

Since Agones will automatically add the label to a GameServer of a given Fleet, we can use that label selector to target a specific Fleet by name. In this instance, we are targeting the Fleet xonotic.

apiVersion: ""
kind: GameServerAllocation
    matchLabels: xonotic

Next Steps:

  • Read the various references, including the GameServer and Fleet reference materials.
  • Review the specifics of Health Checking.
  • See all the commands the Client SDK provides - we only show a few here!
  • If you aren’t familiar with the term Pod, this should provide a reference.
