Kubernetes control plane component that runs controllers.
Kube-controller-manager oversees the controllers shipped with Kubernetes. In Kubernetes, a controller is a control loop that watches the shared state of the cluster through the apiserver and makes changes attempting to move the current state towards the desired state. Examples of controllers that ship with Kubernetes today are the replication controller, endpoints controller, namespace controller, and serviceaccounts controller.
