Goldilocks

Get your resource requests "Just Right"

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

Documentation

Check out the documentation at docs.fairwinds.com

How can this help with my resource settings?

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

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