This sounds like a perfect use case for memory.low on Type_A, and it's pretty
much exactly what we invented it for. What's the problem with that?
But we cannot estimate how much memory Type_A uses at least.
total memory: 100G
At the beginning, Type_A was in an idle state, and it only used 10G of memory.
The load is very low. We want to run Type_B to avoid wasting machine resources.
When Type_B runs for a while, it used 80G of memory.
At this time Type_A is busy, it needs more memory.
