runai suspend


Suspend a Job

Suspending a Running Job will stop the Job and will not allow it to be scheduled until it is resumed using runai resume. This means that,

  • You will no longer be able to enter it via runai bash.
  • The Job logs will be deleted.
  • Any data saved on the container and not stored in a shared location will be lost.

Technically, the command deletes the Kubernetes pods associated with the Job and marks the Job as suspended until it is manually released.


runai suspend <job-name>
    [--all | -A]

    [--loglevel value]
    [--project string | -p string]
    [--help | -h]
