Pods have a defined lifecycle, starting from Pending phase to succeeded or failed phase.
The Pods Phases in Kubernetes are
Pending, Running, Succeeded, Failed and Unknown.
Sometimes, the state of the Pod could not be obtained due to an error in communicating with the node and so state of the Pod will become unknown.
