Setting resources for your sidecar

The sidecar deployment is composed of many containers, and all of these containers can have resource requirements and limits attached to them.

Setting default requests and limits to all containers on the sidecar

To set the default resources for all containers on the sidecar, add the following lines to your values.yaml file.

resources:
limits:
cpu: 100m
memory: 20Mi
requests:
cpu: 50m
memory: 10Mi

info

The above are the recommended settings for the sidecar. Remember that these are for each container in the sidecar, and not for the full sidecar.

Setting resources for a single container

To set up resources for a single container, go to the container section of the values file and add these lines to it:

<repo>:
resources:
limits:
cpu: 100m
memory: 20Mi
requests:
cpu: 50m
memory: 10Mi

You can set the limits and requests to whatever matches your infrastructure capabilities. For example, if you want to have the mysql container require 1 cpu and 100MB of memory, set this on your values.yaml:


mysql:
resources:
requests:
cpu: 1
memory: 100Mi

info

Setting the resources for a single container overrrides the default resources for that container.
