The columns A and B are exactly the already considered examples A and B.


The next column labelled “2A” was produced by multiplying all the numbers from example A by 2. This configuration is good for half the number of containers plan A was created for, that is, this new configuration is for 100 containers on a system with 1GB of RAM.


The next column “0.5A+0.5B” was produced by multiplying the numbers from example A by 0.5 and adding the numbers from example B multiplied by 0.5. The resulting confguration is a mean confguration between A and B, being computed as (A + B)/2. It is good for

containers on a system with 1GB of RAM.

Other configurations[edit]

A lot of other configurations can be produced the same way, by multiplying by a constant (and summing, if necessary) the values from existing configurations.

Configurations produced by multiplying existing configurations by a number greater than 1 will be consistent if the original configurations were consistent. Configurations produced by multiplying by a number less than 1 may or may not be consistent. See Intermediate UBC configurations for more details about producing new configurations basing on the existing ones.

Caution: do not subtract the values of one configuration from others.
