"LimitedPriorityLevelConfiguration specifies how to handle requests that are subject to limits. It addresses two issues:\n - How are requests for this priority level limited?\n - What should be done with requests that exceed the limit?"



fn withBorrowingLimitPercent


"borrowingLimitPercent, if present, configures a limit on how many seats this priority level can borrow from other priority levels. The limit is known as this level's BorrowingConcurrencyLimit (BorrowingCL) and is a limit on the total number of seats that this level may borrow at any one time. This field holds the ratio of that limit to the level's nominal concurrency limit. When this field is non-nil, it must hold a non-negative integer and the limit is calculated as follows.\n\nBorrowingCL(i) = round( NominalCL(i) * borrowingLimitPercent(i)/100.0 )\n\nThe value of this field can be more than 100, implying that this priority level can borrow a number of seats that is greater than its own nominal concurrency limit (NominalCL). When this field is left nil, the limit is effectively infinite."

fn withLendablePercent


"lendablePercent prescribes the fraction of the level's NominalCL that can be borrowed by other priority levels. The value of this field must be between 0 and 100, inclusive, and it defaults to 0. The number of seats that other levels can borrow from this level, known as this level's LendableConcurrencyLimit (LendableCL), is defined as follows.\n\nLendableCL(i) = round( NominalCL(i) * lendablePercent(i)/100.0 )"

fn withNominalConcurrencyShares


"nominalConcurrencyShares (NCS) contributes to the computation of the NominalConcurrencyLimit (NominalCL) of this level. This is the number of execution seats available at this priority level. This is used both for requests dispatched from this priority level as well as requests dispatched from other priority levels borrowing seats from this level. The server's concurrency limit (ServerCL) is divided among the Limited priority levels in proportion to their NCS values:\n\nNominalCL(i) = ceil( ServerCL * NCS(i) / sum_ncs ) sum_ncs = sum[limited priority level k] NCS(k)\n\nBigger numbers mean a larger nominal concurrency limit, at the expense of every other Limited priority level. This field has a default value of 30."

obj limitResponse

"LimitResponse defines how to handle requests that can not be executed right now."

fn limitResponse.withType


"type is \"Queue\" or \"Reject\". \"Queue\" means that requests that can not be executed upon arrival are held in a queue until they can be executed or a queuing limit is reached. \"Reject\" means that requests that can not be executed upon arrival are rejected. Required."

obj limitResponse.queuing

"QueuingConfiguration holds the configuration parameters for queuing"

fn limitResponse.queuing.withHandSize


"handSize is a small positive number that configures the shuffle sharding of requests into queues. When enqueuing a request at this priority level the request's flow identifier (a string pair) is hashed and the hash value is used to shuffle the list of queues and deal a hand of the size specified here. The request is put into one of the shortest queues in that hand. handSize must be no larger than queues, and should be significantly smaller (so that a few heavy flows do not saturate most of the queues). See the user-facing documentation for more extensive guidance on setting this field. This field has a default value of 8."

fn limitResponse.queuing.withQueueLengthLimit


"queueLengthLimit is the maximum number of requests allowed to be waiting in a given queue of this priority level at a time; excess requests are rejected. This value must be positive. If not specified, it will be defaulted to 50."

fn limitResponse.queuing.withQueues


"queues is the number of queues for this priority level. The queues exist independently at each apiserver. The value must be positive. Setting it to 1 effectively precludes shufflesharding and thus makes the distinguisher method of associated flow schemas irrelevant. This field has a default value of 64."
