Upscale the cluster
Use the resize option to upscale a cluster.
If you would like to resize a cluster:
- From cluster details select Actions > Resize:
- Select the host group that you would like to upscale and then click on + to increment the
number of nodes. For example, you can resize the worker host group from 4 to 5 nodes:
- Your cluster status will change from Running to Update in Progress. You will
see messages similar to the following written to the Event
