Improving resource efficiency for Kubernetes clusters via load-aware scheduling

Unfortunately, there are no default scheduler plugins in Kubernetes to consider the actual load in clusters for scheduling. To achieve that goal, we developed a way to optimize resource allocation through load-aware scheduling and submitted our "Trimaran: Real Load Aware Scheduling" Kubernetes enhancement proposal, with the hope of soon merging this feature into the Kubernetes scheduler plugin.
