Yes, we are using multi-tenant SDN plugin and our nodes are 8cpu x 64 GB capacity. Planning to host more than 100 pods per node. With the latest OpenShift release, I hope we don’t have old hard limits on cluster size and # pods on per node
I don’t have an accurate answer for # services per project, which we can’t control at platform side.
Based on abov facts can you recommend a decent CIDR for pods & service?
That would be 64k pods and services. If you expect densities in excess of 100 pods per node you should probably plan for a larger cidr for the cluster network and if you are using the multi tenant plugin you'll also want to plan around how many unique projects you will have.
So inputs are:
# of projects
Expected number of services per project (simple apps or complex apps per project)
Expected pod densities per node
It is possible to grow it if you include the original cidr in the expanded cidr. However, it can be disruptive so we recommend planning up front. I would recommend leaving the possibility of a larger block open by expanding the mask if you are unsure about exact limits.
