When I use the droplet, how long can the CPU run at 100%? What are the restrictions on the CPU?

Hello, @beijinglihe

We do not set a cap on CPU usage by default but we do monitor for droplets doing a consistent 100% CPU and may CPU limit droplets displaying this behavior. Since each droplet shares physical hardware with other droplets, constant 100% CPU use degrades the service quality for other users on the same node.

Hope this helps
