The presentation discusses the intricacies of managing CPUs in Kubernetes and the various options available for resource management.
- Early Kubernetes had simple resource management with only CPU and memory as native resources
- Resource Management Working Group was formed to enhance Kubernetes to support diverse and complex classes of applications
- There are currently three options for resource management: CRIRM, CPU Pooler, and CMK
- Community discussion is ongoing to address gaps in CPU management
- Kubernetes has various operational areas organized as SIGs and working groups
In the early days of Kubernetes, resource management was simple with only single socket nodes. However, as workloads became more complex, the need for specialized hardware and performance-sensitive workloads became apparent. This led to the formation of the Resource Management Working Group, which included representatives from various companies. Currently, there are three options for resource management, but the community is actively discussing ways to address gaps in CPU management. It is important to keep an eye on SIG Node and SIG Scheduling for updates on this topic.
