Lab 9.4 : The quota only takes effect if there is also a resource limit in effect.

I don't think it is true. I was able to run the pods and create the pvc even when the resource limit was not in place for the namespace
Could someone Please clarify this.


  • Hi @calvin19,

    The statement at step 34 means that the limits defined by the resourcequota object (from storage-quota.yaml) are enforced only in conjunction with a limitrange object (from low-resource-range.yaml).

    Was your experience different in this exercise?


  • Yes, I could create the PVC even when the limitrange was not in effect. So i believe limitrange object does not need to exist to enforce resourcequota
