OpenShift Kube Descheduler Operator – Profile Examples

For the last few weeks, I’ve been working with the OpenShift Kube Descheduler and OpenShift Kube Descheduler Operator.

I posted some test-cases for the seven Descheduler Profiles to demonstrate how the Profiles operate under specific conditions. Note these are unsupported test cases.

The following examples are:

  1. AffinityAndTaints
  2. TopologyAndDuplicates
  3. LifecycleAndUtilization
  4. SoftTopologyAndDuplicates
  5. EvictPodsWithLocalStorage
  6. EvictPodsWithPVC
  7. DevPreviewLongLifecycle


I hope this helps you adopt the OpenShift Kube Descheduler Operator.


  1. Evicting pods using the descheduler
  2. Kubernetes: Pod Topology Spread Constraints Use topology spread constraints to control how Pods are spread across your cluster among failure-domains such as regions, zones, nodes, and other user-defined topology domains. This can help to achieve high availability as well as efficient resource utilization.
  3. Kubernetes: Inter-pod affinity and anti-affinity Inter-pod affinity and anti-affinity allow you to constrain which nodes your Pods can be scheduled on based on the labels of Pods already running on that node, instead of the node labels.
