Use the Vertical Pod Autoscaler to make your life easier and optimise cluster costs

As of today we offer the Vertical Pod Autoscaler as an optional component to your clusters.

The Vertical Pod Autoscaler (VPA) frees the users from the necessity of setting up-to-date resource limits and requests for the containers in their pods. When configured, it will set the requests automatically based on usage and thus allow proper scheduling onto nodes so that the appropriate resource amount is available for each pod. It will also maintain the ratios between limits and requests that were specified in the initial containers configuration.

See our public documentation for more info on how to configure it.

By default we deploy autoscaling rules for Prometheus, Loki, Grafana and Kubernetes-dashboard.

This needs to be enabled in your cluster so please contact your lead engineer to help you out with this.
