There is also a /v2/queue endpoint in Marathon to inspect tasks that have been released, but
not yet scheduled.

to estimate how many additional resources you need for how many instances (may need unique
hosts) of pending tasks. Then you would have to map this onto a request in a (cloud) provisioning
tool for X more nodes with Y resources each.
