Using Mesos Quotas to Control Resource Allocation

55 min 56 sec ago

Did you know that Apache Mesos supports quotas? It has since version 0.27. In an ideal world, we could fine-tune quotas to manage resources for maximum efficiency, reining in hogs and making sure that services get what they need without going overboard.
