File edit $FWDIR/conf/fwaffinity.conf

Dear All,

 

I want to assign specific CPU's to an VS. On the fly this can be accomplished via 

 

  • To configure the affinities of Virtual Systems:

    fw ctl affinity -s -d [-vsid <VSID ranges> ] -cpu <CPU ID ranges>

 

However this does not survive a Hardware reboot and $FWDIR/conf/fwaffinity.conf need to be edited. 

 

The Admin guide is not so clear to me as it defines only:

 

$FWDIR/conf/fwaffinity.conf Configuration File

The configuration file $FWDIR/conf/fwaffinity.conf controls CoreXL affinity settings.

Each line in this plain-text file uses the same format: <type> <id> <cpu_id>

DataAllowed ValuesDescription

<type>

i

Configures the affinity of an interface.

 

n

Configures the affinity of a Check Point daemon.

 

k

Configures the affinity of a CoreXL Firewall instance.

<id>

Name of Interface

If <type> = i.

 

Name of Daemon

If <type> = n.

 

ID of CoreXL Firewall instanceFirewall instance

If <type> = k.

 

Can someone please help me how to achieve this ?

Thanks
Hipo

How should I understand this ?

After r80.40 it's not needed to edit the file ?? Only need to be done in earlier versions ( r80.20 ; r80.30).

Correct, it does not need to be done, but definitely not required R80.40 and above.
