To satisfy the resource demands of workloads, Kubernetes must be responsible for resources on the platform and the intricacies associated with them. The introduction of CPU Manager and Device Manager are two examples of K8s taking involved decisions for resource assignment. However, these two components act independently, which can lead to undesirable resource allocations most notable on a systems with multiple CPU Socket or NUMA Regions.

Under the guidance of SIG node, a new component is being introduced to Kubelet called Topology Manager, which will resolve this undesirable situation by enabling optimal resource allocation. This talk will introduce Topology Manager, how it works to solve these problems as well as the reasons behind introducing such a feature.
