How do I delete a running/terminated pod?

IPUJobs manages the launcher and worker pods, therefore the pods will be deleted when the IPUJob is deleted, using kubectl delete ipujobs <IPUJob-name>. If only the pod is deleted via kubectl delete pod, the IPUJob may respawn the pod.

To see running or terminated IPUJobs, run kubectl get ipujobs.

My IPUJob died with a message: 'poptorch_cpp_error': Failed to acquire X IPU(s). Why?

This error may appear when the IPUJob name is too long.

We have identified that for IPUJobs with metadata:name length over 36 characters, this error may appear. A solution is to reduce the name to under 36 characters.
