ns-vpxparam

The following operations can be performed on "ns-vpxparam":

set| show| unset|

set ns vpxparam

Set vpx configuration settings for the existing vpx.

Synopsis

set ns vpxparam [-masterclockcpu1 ( YES | NO )] [-cpuyield ] [-ownerNode ]

Arguments

masterclockcpu1 This setting applicable in virtual appliances, to move master clock source cpu from management cpu cpu0 to cpu1 ie PE0. * There are 2 options for the behavior: 1. YES - Allow the Virtual Appliance to move clock source to cpu1. 2. NO - Virtual Appliance will use management cpu ie cpu0 for clock source default option is NO.

Possible values: YES, NO

cpuyield This setting applicable in virtual appliances, is to affect the cpu yield(relinquishing the cpu resources) in any hypervised environment.

  • There are 3 options for the behavior:
  • YES - Allow the Virtual Appliance to yield its vCPUs periodically, if there is no data traffic.
  • NO - Virtual Appliance will not yield the vCPU.
  • DEFAULT - Restores the default behaviour, according to the license.

  • Its behavior in different scenarios:

  • As this setting is node specific only, it will not be propagated to other nodes, when executed on Cluster(CLIP) and HA(Primary).
  • In cluster setup, use '-ownerNode' to specify ID of the cluster node.
  • This setting is a system wide implementation and not granular to vCPUs.
  • No effect on the management PE.

Possible values: DEFAULT, YES, NO Default value: DEFAULT

ownerNode ID of the cluster node for which you are setting the cpuyield. It can be configured only through the cluster IP address. Default value: 255 Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: 31

Example

set ns vpxparam -cpuyield YES/NO/DEFAULT -masterclockcpu1 YES/NO

show ns vpxparam

Display the vpx configuration setting for the vpx.

Synopsis

show ns vpxparam

Arguments

Output

cpuyield Display the vCPU yield setting. In a virtual appliance, CPU yield attribute will release the CPU processing for other virtual appliances on the same platform.

ownerNode ID of the cluster node for which you are setting the cpuyield. It can be configured only through the cluster IP address.

masterclockcpu1 Display master clock source. This attribute is set to YES if clock source is cpu1 and NO for cpu0.
