The following operations can be performed on "ns vpxparam":
Set vpx configuration settings for the existing vpx.
set ns vpxparam -cpuyield <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 applicable in Cluster and HA scenarios.
This setting is a system wide implementation and not granular to vCPUs.
No effect on the management PE.
Possible values: DEFAULT, YES, NO
set ns vpxparam -cpuyield YES/NO
Display the vpx configuration setting for the vpx.
show ns vpxparam
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.
