Service CPU Resources

In the field CPU Resources, you have to specify the minimum number of 'thousandth of a core' (m) that the container needs and the maximum number of 'thousandth of a core' (m) that it can use.


CPU resources are measured in CPU units. One CPU, in Kubernetes, is equivalent to:

  • 1 AWS vCPU;

  • 1 GCP Core;

  • 1 Azure vCore;

  • 1 Hyperthread on a bare-metal Intel processor with Hyperthreading.

CPU Resources, which are measured in CPU units, can be expressed as an integer or a fractional value with one of these suffixes: m and milli.

The different suffixes, applied to different integers or fractional values, can express the same CPU Resource value. For example: 100m CPU, 100 milliCPU, and 0.1 CPU are all the same.

It is not possible to be more precise than 1m and CPU is a always an absolute quantity. For example, 0.1 is the same amount of CPU on a single-core, dual-core, or 48-core machine.


In the microservice detail of Mia Platform DevOps Console, you can only express the CPU Resource value in m.
