Component profiles, CPU limits, memory limits, and licensing

Available component profiles, their CPU and memory limits, and how the CPU-based licensing works.

API Connect is licensed based on the CPU usage of your deployment. Each component profile sets specific CPU and memory limits on each of the containers that comprise API Connect.

API Connect operator

The API Connect operator container uses the same CPU and memory requests and limits for all profiles, and is not a container that requires license entitlement.
