2024-02-06, 16:45–17:10, B.3.037

When multiple users share a common infrastructure, there is a concern that certain users might exceed their fair share of resources. Resource quotas serve as a tool for administrators to mitigate this concern by limiting access to shared resources, ensuring fair collaboration.

The new Foreman Resource Quota plugin introduces such resource management capabilities to the Foreman. This talk presents the new plugin, outlines its features, and gives a live demonstration.
