Guides - Edit or Remove Node Pools

Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE) is a fully-managed container orchestration engine for deploying and managing containerized applications and workloads. LKE combines Linode’s ease of use and simple pricing with the infrastructure efficiency of Kubernetes. You can now get your infrastructure and workloads up and running in minutes instead of days.

  1. On your cluster’s details page, click the Resize Pool option at the top-right of each entry in the Node Pools section.

    Using the sidebar that appears to the right of the page, you can now remove - or add + Linodes to the pool, and the total cost of your new resources will be displayed. To accept these changes, select the Save Changes button to continue.

    Shrinking a node pool will result in deletion of Linodes. Any local storage on deleted Linodes (such as “hostPath” and “emptyDir” volumes, or “local” PersistentVolumes) will be erased.

  2. To remove a node pool from the cluster’s details page, click the Delete Pool option at the top-right of each entry in the Node Pools section. A pop-up message will then appear confirming that you’re sure you’d like to proceed with deletion. Select the Delete option, and your Node Pool will proceed to be deleted.

    Your cluster must always have at least one active node pool.
