Descheduler for Kubernetes

Descheduler for Kubernetes is used to rebalance clusters by evicting pods that can potentially be scheduled on better nodes. In the current implementation, descheduler does not schedule replacement of evicted pods but relies on the default scheduler for that.


helm repo add descheduler
helm install --name my-release descheduler/descheduler-helm-chart


This chart bootstraps a desheduler cron job on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.


  • Kubernetes 1.14+

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

helm install --name my-release descheduler/descheduler-helm-chart

The command deploys descheduler on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.
