Yes, per primitive, but does not take into account any usage (unless you tell
him to do so).

If you have a 3-node cluster, and one node fails, the dead resources will be
distributed equally between the remaining nodes (like said above).

"Utilization" is a good keyword to search. Despite of that there's a German
saying "Probieren geht über studieren", meaning "trying is preferrable over
studying". Sometimes, at least ;-)
