Hello everyone,

 

I have few nutanix cluster, and all the CVMs has memory usage around 65-75% all time which I consider quite high.

There is an cluster check which will kick in if the cpu usage is to high. Then you can act on it. More info here: https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/kbs/details?targetId=kA03200000004zxCAA

  • Controller VM (CVM) CPU utilization for last 60 mins: 95 - 97 % = WARN | last 30 mins: 98 - 100 % = FAIL

So 65-75% is acceptable.

Usually CVM resources won’t be oversized. However, depend on the features and kind of workload, CVM resources should be increased
