You can set the default memory and CPU reservations and limits for containers on a namespace through the vSphere Client. DevOps engineers can later override these values in the pod specifications they define. Container requests translate to resource reservations on vSphere Pods.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that you have the Modify namespace configuration privilege on the Supervisor Cluster.

Procedure

  1. From the vSphere Client home menu, select Workload Management.
  2. Select a namespace, select Configure, and click Resource Limits
  3. Configure default memory and CPU reservations and limits for the containers in the namespace.
    Option Description
    CPU Request Set the default CPU reservation for containers in the namespace.
    CPU Limit Set the default limit for CPU usage for containers in the namespace.
    Memory Request Set the default memory reservation for containers in the namespace.
    Memory Limit Set the default limit for memory usage for containers in the namespace.
