Subject Capacity Scheduler capacity vs. maximum-capacity
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2014 19:08:22 GMT
Please help me understand how "capacity" and "maximum-capacity" on a queue
work in the Capacity Scheduler.

My understanding is that a queue is allocated "capacity" amount of
resources, and if it needs more, it can "stretch" up to "maximum-capacity"

But if that's the case, why do we need "capacity" at all? It seems like
"maximum-capacity" is the true limit and "capacity" is ignored?

Thanks in advance,
