Change Horizontal pod autoscaler sync period in AKS?

Tanul 1,251 Reputation points


By default, HPA runs every 15 seconds, as shown here. Is it possible to change this time period in AKS. As per my understanding, in self hosted K8s, we can change it by updating this flag horizontal-pod-autoscaler-sync-period in kube controller manager

What can we do to update this time period in AKS. Please suggest. Thank you.

Kind Regards,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform, thanks for posting your query here.

    Based on the details shared, you are probably looking for the scan-interval setting in the cluster autoscaler profile. All the configurable attributes of CAS are here in this document, but adjusting the scan interval sounds like the right thing for your ask.

    Hope this helps.
