oc idle ā€” Idle scalable resources


oc idle [Options]


Idle scalable resources

Idling discovers the scalable resources (such as deployment configs and replication controllers) associated with a series of services by examining the endpoints of the service. Each service is then marked as idled, the associated resources are recorded, and the resources are scaled down to zero replicas.

Upon receiving network traffic, the services (and any associated routes) will "wake up" the associated resources by scaling them back up to their previous scale.
