Each service has an associated service unit cost. These costs indicate how computationally expensive one service is to run compared to another. You can use these costs as a guide for how to distribute services across the instances in your system.
- Avoid running multiple services with high service unit costs together on
the same instance.
Ideally, each of these services should run by itself on an instance:
- On master instances, avoid running any services besides those classified as System services.
- To use your instances evenly, try deploying a comparable number of service units on each instance.
- Moving or scaling services can cause document failures during a workflow task. Before moving or scaling a service, you should either pause all running workflow tasks or wait for them to complete.
