Schedule Shutdown & Restart on Kubernetes Cluster

Hi Team,

We have Deployed Kubernetes Cluster on all Cloud Environments . We are exploring all the possible features of it. Is there any possibility to Schedule the Shutdown & Restart of entire Kubernetes cluster?

Kindly let me know

Not really. There is no native way of doing a cluster wide shut down. If you need to do something like that you can scale your apps down to 0 in whatever order is needed - like front end first, then the dbs. Then shut off the worker nodes and follow up with stopping the control plane services and finally etcd. When starting it back up, you’d do it in the inverse order.
