Chapter 2. Understanding resource optimization for OpenShift

As part of cost management, resource optimization for OpenShift assesses and monitors your usage from all of your clusters to maximize your Red Hat OpenShift resources. Using current and historical data from OpenShift, resource optimization for OpenShift recommends actions to optimize your costs on your OpenShift clusters.

The service shows metrics for CPU and memory usage, analyzes those metrics, and compares defined container requests and limits. Using the integration data that you added to cost management, the resource optimization for OpenShift analyzes the historical usage patterns to return optimization recommendations. This data enables better resource allocation and helps you to save money on your OpenShift cluster deployment.
