Cluster Cleanup

Sleeping resources#

To automatically save resources in your cluster, you can configure Okteto Enterprise to automatically scale inactive applications and resources to zero after a period of inactivity.

You can enable and customize the inactivity period via the garbage collector's settings.

Inactive Applications and Resources#

Okteto Enterprise considers an application or resources inactive if a user hasn't performed any of the following tasks during the inactivity period:

  • Upgrade or redeploy via the UI or the command line.
  • Launched a development container with okteto up.
  • Pushed the latest version of your code with okteto push.

Service accounts, config maps, secrets, or volumes you create will be unaffected by this operation.

Wake sleeping resources#

Okteto's UI will notify you when there are sleeping resources in your namespace. Press the Wake all button to activate all sleeping resources at once.

Sleeping resources are also started if anyone visits any of the public endpoints of your application.

Delete Unused Namespaces#

You can also configure Okteto Enterprise to delete unused namespaces after a period of inactivity. You can enable and customize the inactivity period via the garbage collector's settings.
