We are having R77.30 VSX with 16 licensed CPU cores and 4 virtual systems, initially corexl was was configured with 14 fwk instances and then we change it to 12,rebooted gateway and in SmartConsole assign 3 cores for each VS to have some free cpu cores for interfaces, when load increase.

Current ouput of affinity:

# fw ctl affinity -l -a
eth6: CPU 1
eth7: CPU 1
eth8: CPU 1
eth9: CPU 1
eth0: CPU 1
eth11: CPU 1
eth10: CPU 1
eth5: CPU 1
VS_0 fwk: CPU 0
VS_1 fwk: CPU 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
VS_2 fwk: CPU 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
VS_3 fwk: CPU 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
VS_4 fwk: CPU 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

 

Is this as it should be ? i would suspect that amount of CPU cores assigned to VS_1-4 will be just 12 and not 14 (CPU 2-15).

Per CP TAC we should manually define which cores should be assigned to VS systems. Does anybody have same experience?
