I find some codes in flink does not make sense to me. Like in some classes below

JobMasterGateway.java has a offerSlots method which means Offers the given 
slots to the job manager. I was wondering why a jobmanager running should need 
slots ?
TaskExecutor.java has a offerSlotsToJobManager method which means offer slots 
to jobmanager.

Above both are confuse me. I just know that Task running needs slots which 
support by a taskManager. Does anyone let me why what does jobmanager needs 
slots mean ?

Thanks in advance.
