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 applicable in Cluster and HA scenarios.

  • This setting is a system wide implementation and not granular to vCPUs.

  • No effect on the management PE.
