Nomad scheduling - how to control bin/packing


By default it seems nomad will place jobs as “thinly” as possible. So if there are 10 nodes, and 10 different jobs, each will only get 1.

Is there any way to alter this, so that they are packed as efficiently as possible instead?


Hi @quantnik, that is not the outcome I would expect to achieve when using Nomad with the default bin-packing scheduling algorithm.

Are you able to provide information on the jobs you are deploying along with any potentially relevant node information?
