Drain node in preparation for maintenance
Drain node in preparation for maintenance.
The given node will be marked unschedulable to prevent new pods from arriving.
drain deletes all pods except mirror pods (which cannot be deleted through
the API server). If there are DaemonSet-managed pods, drain will not proceed
without –ignore-daemonsets, and regardless it will not delete any
DaemonSet-managed pods, because those pods would be immediately replaced by the
DaemonSet controller, which ignores unschedulable markings. If there are any
pods that are neither mirror pods nor managed by ReplicationController,
ReplicaSet, DaemonSet or Job, then drain will not delete any pods unless you
When you are ready to put the node back into service, use kubectl uncordon, which will make the node schedulable again.
kubectl drain NODE
# Drain node "foo", even if there are pods not managed by a ReplicationController, ReplicaSet, Job, or DaemonSet on it. $ kubectl drain foo --force # As above, but abort if there are pods not managed by a ReplicationController, ReplicaSet, Job, or DaemonSet, and use a grace period of 15 minutes. $ kubectl drain foo --grace-period=900
--delete-local-data Continue even if there are pods using emptyDir (local data that will be deleted when the node is drained). --force Continue even if there are pods not managed by a ReplicationController, ReplicaSet, Job, or DaemonSet. --grace-period int Period of time in seconds given to each pod to terminate gracefully. If negative, the default value specified in the pod will be used. (default -1) --ignore-daemonsets Ignore DaemonSet-managed pods.
