doctl kubernetes cluster node-pool list <cluster-id|cluster-name> [flags]




Retrieves information about the specified cluster’s node pools, including:

  • The node pool ID
  • The slug indicating the machine size of the nodes, such as s-1vcpu-2gb
  • The number of nodes in the pool
  • The tags applied to the node pool
  • The names of the nodes

Specifying --output=json when calling this command returns additional information about the individual nodes in the response, such as their IDs, status, creation time, and update time.


The following example retrieves information about all node pools in a cluster named example-cluster and uses the --format flag to only return the ID, name, and nodes for each pool:

doctl kubernetes cluster node-pool list example-cluster --format ID,Name,Nodes
