doctl compute droplet-action resize <droplet-id> [flags]


Use this command to resize a Droplet to a different plan.

By default, this command will only increase or decrease the CPU and RAM of the Droplet, not its disk size. This can be reversed.

To also increase the Droplet’s disk size, pass the --resize-disk flag. This is a permanent change and cannot be reversed as a Droplet’s disk size cannot be decreased.

In order to resize a Droplet, it must first be powered off.


--formatColumns for output in a comma-separated list. Possible values: ID, Status, Type, StartedAt, CompletedAt, ResourceID, ResourceType, Region
--help, -hHelp for this command
--no-headerReturn raw data with no headers
Default: false
--resize-diskResize the Droplet’s disk size in addition to its RAM and CPU.
Default: false
--sizeA slug indicating the new size for the Droplet (e.g. s-2vcpu-2gb). Run doctl compute size list for a list of valid sizes. (required)
--waitWait for action to complete
Default: false
