is there a graceful restart for linkerD or just regular k8s delete should be ok?

Hi @raindrop18, according to this k8s doc describing the termination of pods, the kubelet sends a TERM signal to all running processing in a pod. Linkerd can be configured so that graceful shutdown occurs on SIGTERM using the admin section of a config file:

admin:
 shutdownGraceMs: <insert desired shutdown duration here>

So to answer your question, having graceful shutdown configured and a pod deletion should be ok.
