This page explains how to update and delete an existing Dataproc cluster.
Updating a cluster
You can update a cluster by issuing a Dataproc API clusters.patch request, running a gcloud dataproc clusters update command in a local terminal window or in Cloud Shell, or by editing cluster parameters from the Configuration tab of the Cluster details page for the cluster in the Google Cloud Console.
The following cluster parameters can be updated:
- the number of standard worker nodes in a cluster—see Scaling clusters
- the number of secondary worker nodes in a cluster— see Preemptible VMs
- whether to use graceful decommissioning to control shutting down a worker after its jobs are completed
- adding or deleting cluster labels
