OOM in Deploy Haproxy App on Kubernetes task


The task says that I must define resource limit for memory with 50Mi but the container does not start as it complains about Out of memory.
What should I do ?

    Container ID:  docker://df1a9f3640b1d4624121dbc3cd2bfaeea2d8ba024898c7d76b8d5ef8f8cbee4b

      Finished:     Fri, 11 Jun 2021 12:26:43 +0000
    Ready:          False
    Restart Count:  10
      cpu:     500m
      memory:  50Mi
      cpu:     500m
      memory:  50Mi

a process gets OOM killed if it tries to use more than the limit. If no limit is set, process can allocate as much as it wants but if there is a memory exhaustion, the only way to regain some free memory is to kill a process.

Please check this to get info about how to assign memory resources to pods and containers

thank you for the reply I know this but my question was something else.

kodekloud engineer task requires to set memory limit for a pod which is 50Mi whereas this value is a bit low and the pod does not start.

I think the task must be edited.
