Horizontal scaling in Kubernetes is done by scaling the number of Pods for a Workload. The Kubernetes Autoscaler then uses the number of pending Pods to scale the cluster within the boundaries your DevOps team created. Humanitec makes it easy to change the number of Pods for any Workload in an active Deployment.
You can change the Number of Replicas for any Workload in an active Deployment from the Workload Details Screen.
Click in the field for the target number of Replicas.
Change the target number of Replicas either by entering a number or by clicking on the small arrows up or down.
The number of Replicas will be changed accordingly.
You can see the status of each Pod within a Workload of an active Deployment by clicking on the number of the Pod in the Replicas section of the App Details Screen.
