Upgrade Cluster Autoscaler

This guide will walk you through upgrading the Cluster Autoscaler, to ensure that you use the latest version supported by your EKF cluster.


This guide assumes that you have already deployed the Cluster Autoscaler on your cluster.

If this does not hold, and you want to deploy the Cluster Autoscaler now, proceed to the corresponding guide for deploying the Cluster Autoscaler on your cluster. After that, proceed to the What’s Next section of this guide.

If you have not deployed the Cluster Autoscaler and you do not wish to deploy it, proceed to the What’s Next section.

What You’ll Need


  1. Go to your GitOps repository, inside your rok-tools management environment:

    root@rok-tools:~# cd ~/ops/deployments
  2. Apply the kustomization:

    root@rok-tools:~/ops/deployments# rok-deploy --apply rok/cluster-autoscaler/overlays/deploy


  1. Verify that the Cluster Autoscaler is up and running. Verify that field READY is 1/1:

    root@rok-tools:~# kubectl get -n kube-system deploy/cluster-autoscaler NAME READY UP-TO-DATE AVAILABLE AGE cluster-autoscaler 1/1 1 1 1m


You have successfully upgraded the Cluster Autoscaler.
