Documentation

kubedownscaler

Scales down Kubernetes Deployments and StatefulSets to 0 replicas, keeps note of the number of replicas in annotations, and scales everything back up to the original number of replicas.

Can operate on a single namespace, or the entire cluster.

Ideal for performing a controlled shutdown, maintenance, etc.

Uses whatever context your local kubectl has.

pip install kubedownscaler
