Increase CVM CPU

I was wondering how to increase the number of cores assigned to CVM? We have some VMs with 20 cores assigned and want to mae sure the CVM has enough proccesssing power to handle these. Currently CVMs have 8 cores assigned each. Still wrapping my head around have CVM resources influence VMs though.

 

Thanks,

Re: Increase CVM CPU

Are you seeing NCC failures on high CVM CPU utilization?  VMware or AHV?

Yeah get alerts from time to time about high CVM CPU utilization. Using AHV.

That's normal behavior of CVM, I think.

What is your cluster config? AHV or VMWare?

 

Basically you just need to make sure that all of the services of cluster must be stopped before increasing or modifying any CVM config.
