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.
