TIL: Kubernetes Resources are Easily Mistyped

At $work we have a kubernetes1 cluster. I have to tell every deployment how many resources we need, if you go over a certain threshold the deployment is refused.

I wanted half a CPU (500 millicpu) but my deployment was refused: “You are not allowed to claim 500.000 cpus”.

You know why?

I wonder if that is ever needed?
