»Command: eval delete
eval delete command is used to delete evaluations. It should be used
cautiously and only in outage situations where there is a large backlog of
evaluations not being processed. During most normal and outage scenarios,
Nomad's reconciliation and state management will handle evaluations as needed.
The eval broker is expected to be paused prior to running this command and
un-paused after. These actions can be performed by the
operator scheduler get-config
operator scheduler set-config commands respectively.
nomad eval delete [options] [args]
It takes an optional argument which is the ID of the evaluation to delete. If the evaluation ID is omitted, this command will use the filter flag to identify and delete a set of evaluations.
When ACLs are enabled, this command requires a
-address=<addr>: The address of the Nomad server. Overrides the
NOMAD_ADDRenvironment variable if set. Defaults to
-region=<region>: The region of the Nomad server to forward commands to. Overrides the
NOMAD_REGIONenvironment variable if set. Defaults to the Agent's local region.
-namespace=<namespace>: The target namespace for queries and actions bound to a namespace. Overrides the
NOMAD_NAMESPACEenvironment variable if set. If set to
'*', job and alloc subcommands query all namespaces authorized to user. Defaults to the "default" namespace.
-no-color: Disables colored command output. Alternatively,
NOMAD_CLI_NO_COLORmay be set. This option takes precedence over
-force-color: Forces colored command output. This can be used in cases where the usual terminal detection fails. Alternatively,
NOMAD_CLI_FORCE_COLORmay be set. This option has no effect if
-no-coloris also used.
-ca-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded CA cert file to use to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. Overrides the
NOMAD_CACERTenvironment variable if set.
-ca-path=<path>: Path to a directory of PEM encoded CA cert files to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. If both
-ca-certis used. Overrides the
NOMAD_CAPATHenvironment variable if set.
-client-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded client certificate for TLS authentication to the Nomad server. Must also specify
-client-key. Overrides the
NOMAD_CLIENT_CERTenvironment variable if set.
-client-key=<path>: Path to an unencrypted PEM encoded private key matching the client certificate from
-client-cert. Overrides the
NOMAD_CLIENT_KEYenvironment variable if set.
-tls-server-name=<value>: The server name to use as the SNI host when connecting via TLS. Overrides the
NOMAD_TLS_SERVER_NAMEenvironment variable if set.
-tls-skip-verify: Do not verify TLS certificate. This is highly not recommended. Verification will also be skipped if
-token: The SecretID of an ACL token to use to authenticate API requests with. Overrides the
NOMAD_TOKENenvironment variable if set.
-filter: Specifies an expression used to filter evaluations by for deletion. When using this flag, it is advisable to ensure the syntax is correct using the eval list command first. Note that deleting evals by filter is imprecise: for sets of evals larger than a single raft log batch, evals can be inserted behind the cursor and therefore be missed.
-yes: Bypass the confirmation prompt if an evaluation ID was not provided.
Delete an evaluation using its ID:
$ nomad eval delete 9ecffbba-73be-d909-5d7e-ac2694c10e0c Successfuly deleted 1 evaluation
Delete all evaluations with status
pending for the
$ nomad eval delete -filter='Status == "pending" and JobID == "example"' Are you sure you want to delete 3 evals? [y/N] y Successfuly deleted 3 evaluations
Delete all evaluations for the
service whilst skipping all
$ nomad eval delete -filter='Scheduler == "system" or Scheduler == "service"' -yes Successfuly deleted 23 evaluations
