Subject Re: Resource request and limit for YuniKorn pods
Date Tue, 21 Apr 2020 05:20:05 GMT
Hi Adam

Thanks for the investigation. These data are useful, I think what you
suggested looks good to me.

   - I think it makes sense to set a relatively small number, this is to
   ensure we are not getting into trouble on small envs. But for memory, can
   we request for 1G at least? Memory cannot be throttled, 1G is safer.
   - For the CPU, it looks like we probably won't go beyond 4~5 CPUs. So
   setting a limit to 4 makes sense to me. I also checked an EKS cluster, I
   saw usage around 1 CPU there.

So I think we can do

          cpu: 200m
          memory: *1Gi*
          cpu: 4
          memory: 2Gi <> could you help to review this? Let
us know if this makes sense to you.
