CPU Optimisation

Posted on 06 Nov 2019

CPU Scheduler

The CPU Scheduler, as the name suggests, schedules the CPU.  It schedules the virtual CPUs on the VM (vCPUs) on the physical CPUs on the host (pCPUs). The CPU Scheduler enforces a proportional-share algorithm for CPU usage across all virtual machines and VMkernel processes on the ESXi host. It enables support for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) VMs.  It also allows for the use of relaxed co-scheduling for SMP VMs.  Read on for more information on these topics!


It all begins with worlds.

VMware How To: Understand Auto Deploy - vSphere 6.7

Posted on 11 Oct 2019

Auto Deploy is a useful capability of vSphere that prevents administrators having to manually install and configure tens or hundreds of ESXi hosts.  It enables ESXi to boot, and if required, run in memory instead of having to go out and purchase hundreds of local hard disks or USB/SD cards for each server.  You can still purchase these disks if you like to enable you to take advantage of additional capabilities of Auto Deployed hosts which I will cover below.

Fundamentally, Auto Deploy uses image profiles that are created using Image Builder, vCenter Server and Host Profiles.

This guide covers vSphere 6.7 and 6.5, hopefully it will give you some much needed knowledge on Auto Deploy for the Advanced Deploy vSphere 6.5 Exam 2018 (3V0-21.18) (VCAP65-DCA).
