Effective memory management is crucial for achieving optimal performance and resource utilization in Kubernetes deployments. In this session, we will explore the realm of advanced memory controls for efficient memory utilization and robust memory protection. This talk will equip attendees with valuable knowledge about effectively managing memory in Kubernetes deployments, leading to improved performance, resource utilization, and customization options. Starting with an overview of advanced memory controls available in cgroup v2, we will delve into how K8s has strengthened memory protection through addition of a new feature, Memory QoS, in version 1.27. Furthermore, for those seeking granular control over memory configuration, we will explore the utilization of custom Node Resource Interface (NRI) plugins. Witness how NRI plugins enable administrators to exercise complete command over the workload memory options thereby achieving elevated control and customization.
