Over Commitment of Resources (Kubernetes Only)

With Portainer Business Edition, you can use your resources on full where are most needed. You can configure more resources to namespaces than is physically available in the cluster.

Important: By ENABLING resource over-commit, you are able to assign more resources to namespaces than is physically available in the cluster. This may lead to unexpected deployment failures if there is insufficient resources to service demand. By DISABLING resource over-commit (highly recommended), you are only able to assign resources to namespaces that are less (in aggregate) than the cluster total minus any system resource reservation.
