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.

You can also awaken an application by redeploying it using one of the methods below:

  • If you deployed the application from a git repository, press the Redeploy button in the Okteto UI.
  • If you deployed the application from the application catalog, press the Redeploy button in the Okteto UI.
  • Redeploy your application from the command line with kubectl apply, helm upgrade, okteto push, or any other Kubernetes tool

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 (/docs/enterprise/configuration#gc).
