Pixie launches low memory mode to reduce resource requirements, making it a viable option for more clusters

We’ve reduced Pixie’s memory requirements by 50%, dropping its minimum memory requirement down to 1 GB.

Systems with as little as 4GB of total memory are now viable to run Pixie (to accommodate application pods, we recommend that no more than 25% of the nodes’ total memory be allocated to Pixie).

For larger clusters, we still recommend using the default 2GB memory configuration for optimal performance.
