[DEPRECATED] Descheduler for Kubernetes

Descheduler 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.

Installing the Chart

Before you can install the chart you will need to add the stevehipwell repo to Helm.

helm repo add stevehipwell

After you’ve installed the repo you can install the chart.

helm upgrade --install --namespace default --values ./my-values.yaml my-release stevehipwell/descheduler
