EKS / Client / delete_fargate_profile



Deletes an Fargate profile.

When you delete a Fargate profile, any Pod running on Fargate that was created with the profile is deleted. If the Pod matches another Fargate profile, then it is scheduled on Fargate with that profile. If it no longer matches any Fargate profiles, then it’s not scheduled on Fargate and may remain in a pending state.

Only one Fargate profile in a cluster can be in the DELETING status at a time. You must wait for a Fargate profile to finish deleting before you can delete any other profiles in that cluster.
