ns vpxparam

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

set| show

set ns vpxparam

p{white-space: pre-wrap;}

Set vpx configuration settings for the existing vpx.

Synopsys

set ns vpxparam -cpuyield <cpuyield> [-ownerNode <positive_integer>]

Arguments

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

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

show ns vpxparam

p{white-space: pre-wrap;}

Display the vpx configuration setting for the vpx.

Synopsys

show ns vpxparam

Outputs

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.
