Quality-of-Service for Memory Resources | Kubernetes Authors: Tim Xu (Tencent Cloud) Kubernetes v1.22, released in August 2021, introduced a new alpha feature that improves how Linux nodes implement memory resource requests and limits. In prior releases, Kubernetes did not support memory quality guarantees. For example, if you set container resources as follows: apiVersion: v1 kind: Pod metadata: name: example spec: containers: - name: nginx resources: requests: memory: "64Mi" cpu: "250m" limits: memory: "64Mi" cpu: "500m" spec.containers.resources.requests(e.g. cpu, memory) is designed for scheduling.
