Is there a feature within the Nutanix Sizer that allows for manual adjustment of the vCPU to pCPU ratio? If so, could someone guide me through the process or point me to the relevant documentation or resources?

Hi, yes, it i spossible to change this for all workloads, or some workloads…

 

Select multiple workloads and select Bulk change → Edit workloads.

 

Adfter selecting that, scroll down to the Workload Specific Inputs and change the ratio.

Bart

Hi Bart,

I've been following your steps, but it seems those instructions allow us to change the vCPUs:pCore ratio. However, my goal is to find a way to adjust the vCPU to pCPU ratio specifically.

Could you please guide this matter?

I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish.

When defining a workload you are specifying the ratio. You can edit the workload to change it.

 

Hi Bart,

In the process of defining a workload, we typically establish the vCPUs:pCore ratio. However, I am currently seeking a method to specifically define the vCPU to pCPU ratio.

are you creating workloads on virtual machine specifications? or on a raw workload?

when creating Server Virtualization workload, you can customize the profile.

 

Hi Bart 

I tried on a raw workload.

There is option as well… You can choose some ratio between 1 and 15.

 

Hi Bart,

Setting the vCPUs:pCore ratio is feasible, but my aim is to configure the vCPU to pCPU ratio specifically.

specifically to / for what?

The purpose is to Increase the performance.

Performance should always be great. ;-)

You are creating a workload. You set a vCPU-pCPU ratio. You want to adjust them specifically to increase performance.

Is that for the total workload or just for part of that defined workload?

I guess @BartDonders shared all the options, I think what you need to specify the number of cores and clock rate to adjust the results
