Bigger container sizes are available upon request on the support. As a note, each new process requires a PID. And inside each process, each thread needs one too.

Container Limits

Containers have various limits depending on their size. Here is a comprehensive list:

  • RAM: cf. above-mentioned table
  • Swap: twice the amount of RAM.
  • CPU access: all containers have access to all CPU cores. But higher priority means twice as much priority compared to standard priority. For example, consider three containers, one has a high priority and two others have a standard priority. When processes in all three containers attempt to use 100% of CPU, the first container would receive 50% of the total CPU time and the two others would receive 25%.
  • PID limits: from 128 (S) to 2048 (2XL).
  • Ulimit nofile: 10000. Maximum number of files an application can open.
