Create and Manage Container Placements
You can use placements and placement settings to limit and reserve resources. You can also set a priority to the reserved amount of CPU or memory. Select a project for your placement and provision templates to that project to use the placement resourcing.
Verify that at least one host is configured and available.
- In the management portal, navigate to Policies > Placements and click Add.
- In the Add Placement dialog box, configure the new placement settings and click Save.
|Name||Enter a name for your placement.|
|Project||Assign the placement to a project. When you provision new templates to that project, you utilize the placement configuration.|
|Placement Zone||Select a placement zone from the list to assign the placement to a host.|
|Priority||(Optional) Enter a priority value for the placement. Higher value results in higher prioritized resourcing of the provisioned containers in the placement zone.|
|Instances||(Optional) Enter a number to limit the count of provisioned instances up to that number. For unlimited count, leave empty.|
|Memory Limit||(Optional) Limits the maximum amount of memory that the placement uses. For unlimited usage, leave empty.|
The placement appears on the Placements page and you can provision templates to that placement by selecting the assigned project.
