Why the fuck does Kubernetes use all up the CPU!?

Posted on: 12/09/2017

I’m often surprised how popular / trendy software projects seem to have significant limitations / bugs to resolve.

I’m running a beefy server with 8GB of RAM and yet it can’t even run a Wordpress setup due to all the other necessary shit running on the server. Is this really the cost of being able to scale with containers? 72% of the CPU allocated to some shitty abstractions?

So in short, if you only intend to use a single node or only one or two servers - expect a large amount of computing power allocated to running Kubernetes and it’s things…
