Get your resource requests "Just Right"

Goldilocks is a utility that can help you identify a starting point for resource requests and limits.

# How can this help with my resource settings?

By using the kubernetes vertical-pod-autoscaler (opens new window) in recommendation mode, we can see a suggestion for resource requests on each of our apps. This tool creates a VPA for each deployment in a namespace and then queries them for information.

Once your VPAs are in place, you'll see recommendations appear in the Goldilocks dashboard:
