Setting the proper limits and requests to a Kubernetes cluster is one of the most challenging tasks engineers have to face. Not doing this could have critical consequences, like outages or astronomical cloud bills. Sometimes, when engineers don't have the full picture of the cluster they're working on, they tend to use more resources than actually needed for their workloads. This is called the "greedy developer" problem. To avoid this, you'll have not only to identify the unused resources, containers without limits, or very tight ones. But also to set the right requests and limits. In this talk, Jesus and David will walk you through this process. You might have to add new nodes, or just resize your workloads. Since every cluster is different, also measure the optimizations made, to help our audience with their own clusters.
