We have checkpoint firewall with 2 VSs configured in VSX-setup device R80.10, hfa is 249
Each VS has 10 each virtual system instances as per dashboard and fw ctl multik stat output
Overall the firewall has 36 cores as per top and cpstat os -f multi_cpu
I have two queries here as given below
1) I have logged into each VS and checked cpstat os -f multi_cpu output and found that it has 36 cores and all of them some cpu usage. If we have only 10 instances in each VS, why is it showing usage for rest of the cores ?
2) Out of 36 cores, are we using 10 each to each VS or the total number of virtual system instances in each VS’s should not be more than 36 in this case? (for example, if we have 4 VS and still we can have 10 each in each VS ?)
