To control the use of resources, the platform enables administrators to create allocation limits at the following levels
The resource scheduler will use the limits to decide if a user can deploy or reconfigure resources.
The Hard Limit is the maximum amount of resources (e.g CPU, RAM, hard disk) that an enterprise may consume. The Soft Limit can trigger a warning for users and administrators that users are nearing the hard limits for their enterprise.
When a user exceeds the limits, the platform displays messages in pop-ups and it creates events. So limits can also help administrators to forecast resource demand.
If a user exceeds the hard limits for resources that are checked during configuration, then they will see an error pop-up.
And an event message will be generated for the user.
In addition, if a user exceeds soft or hard limits for any type of resources, then event messages will be generated for the administrator.
See Allocation Strategy for information about the application of limits.
