    Note
    • The peak hours for DataWorks tenants to run nodes are from 00:00 to 09:00 each day. If you use shared resource groups during the peak hours, you share resources with other tenants.
    • When tenants share resources, some tenants may preempt the resources. If your nodes must be completed in time, use exclusive resource groups to run the nodes. DataWorks does not charge you additional fees for the node instances that are run on exclusive resource groups. For more information, see Exclusive resource mode.
