Hi @Ram D

The explanation for the parameter is:

The multiple of the queue capacity which can be configured to allow a single user to acquire more resources. By default this is set to 1 which ensures that a single user can never take more than the queue's configured capacity irrespective of how idle the cluster is. Value is specified as a float.

There are two queue parms capacity and max capacity.

The max determines elasticity and it is at queue level.

We have to adjust the user-limit-factor so that user can leverage more than just the capacity. What it says is a user can use X number of times the capacity of the queue within under max capacity.

Hope this helps !
