Although the Namespace Default Limit propagates from the project to each namespace, in some cases, you may need to increase (or decrease) the performance for a specific namespace. In this situation, you can override the default limits by editing the namespace.

In the diagram below, the Rancher administrator has a resource quota in effect for their project. However, the administrator wants to override the namespace limits for Namespace 3 so that it performs better. Therefore, the administrator raises the namespace limits for Namespace 3 so that the namespace can access more resources.

How to: Editing Namespace Resource Quotas

Editing Namespace Resource Quotas

If there is a resource quota configured for a project, you can override the namespace default limit to provide a specific namespace with access to more (or less) project resources.

  1. From the Global view, open the cluster that contains the namespace for which you want to edit the resource quota.

  2. From the main menu, select Projects/Namespaces.

  3. Find the namespace for which you want to edit the resource quota. Select Ellipsis (…) > Edit.

  4. Edit the Resource Quota Limits. These limits determine the resources available to the namespace. The limits must be set within the configured project limits.

    For more information about each Resource Type, see Resource Quota Types.

    Note:

    • If a resource quota is not configured for the project, these options will not be available.
    • If you enter limits that exceed the configured project limits, Rancher will not let you save your edits.

Result: The namespace’s default resource quota is overwritten with your override.
