In this case, we will increase the memory of the Calico pod which was installed using helm on an EKS cluster.

  • helm upgrade --install <release_name> <chart>--values <yaml_file>

    Example : helm upgrade --install aws-calico eks/aws-calico --values /Users/akalia/Downloads/values.yaml

    You can download the sample yaml file from the below link and modify the memory of the desired pod.

  • Once we make the changes you can verify by running

    # kubectl get deployments --> Get the name of the deployment where changes needs to be made.
    # kubectl describe deployments <deployment_name> --> Check if the changes have taken affect.
