Missing description of resource units

We may want to incorporate something like:
To explain what cores/cpu actually are. Specifically, the section on kcu/cpu:

The "Compute Resources" chapter of the Developer Guide:
seems to partially satisfy this BZ. (It's still missing some mention of "kcu".) Do we still want to include "kcu" info? What about the current text -- is it sufficient?
The question regarding KCU would need to be answered by engineering. Part of the reason KCU exists is because of CPU scaling, but I'm not sure we're exposing that to customers.
I would say that most of the text is sufficient but someone should probably decide whether or not we need to talk about KCU.
Thanks for the redirect. Setting needinfo to the the author (AFAICT) of the Compute Resources chapter, who is in engineering. (Derek, please see comments 3 and 4.)
I think the current text is sufficient.
Until such time that we look to support normalization of compute across the cluster with any more intelligence, just describing compute in terms of fractional cores is the clearest thing that we can do. I think anything else introduces confusion.
Moving to CLOSED NOTABUG.
