If the cpu request is 500 and the cpu limit is 4000. What happens when the pod (there is only 1 container in the pod) tries to use more than 500 cpu?
By “what happens”, I mean to ask if there is some throttling, etc. involved?
Lets say the node has ample free cpu. Then, will there be any difference in performance between the foll.:
(a) request=500 & limit=4000. Actual cpu usage 2000.
(b) request=3000 & limit=4000. Actual cpu usage 2000.
Basically, the moment actual cpu usage crosses 500, though it will be allowed to use more cpu (upto 4000) but will that be allowed in a step-wise fashion? Will the scheduler play any role?
