Eviction Policy

This page is an overview of Kubernetes' policy for eviction.

Eviction Policy

The kubeletAn agent that runs on each node in the cluster. It makes sure that containers are running in a pod. proactively monitors for and prevents total starvation of a compute resource. In those cases, the kubelet can reclaim the starved resource by failing one or more Pods. When the kubelet fails a Pod, it terminates all of its containers and transitions its PodPhase to Failed. If the evicted Pod is managed by a Deployment, the Deployment creates another Pod to be scheduled by Kubernetes.
