High CVM Memory Usage in Prism

Getting some high memory alerts on one of our cvms.  Can I just power it off and increase the memory on the cvm or is there something special that needs to be done?

Thanks,

Erik

Yep, after you boot the CVM up, wait till cluster status returns to ok on ALL the nodes before moving on.  If it's AHV, here's a post that goes through the commands.

Or if you want to do it via script...

Hi,

There is no specific procedure unless u r running AHV, but I will recommend to go through CVM memory best practise based on AOS version and features enabled.

@elarson have you try reboot the affected CVM and see the memory utilization ?
