Modify the ViPR Controller footprint on VMware

You can modify the CPU and memory resources used by the ViPR Controller VMs on VMware.

Before you begin

  • This operation requires the System Administrator role in ViPR Controller.
  • You need access to the vCenter Server hosting ViPR Controller.

Procedure

  1. Shut down ViPR Controller from the UI at System > Health > Shutdown All.
  2. Use the vSphere client to access the editable settings:
    1. Go to VMs and Templates
    2. Access the settings for each VM, depending on how ViPR Controller was deployed:

      If ViPR Controller was deployed as a vApp, browse to and select the ViPR Controller vApp, then select the Virtual Machines tab to see the individual VMs.

      If ViPR Controller was deployed as separate VMs (that is, no vApp), the individual VMs are visible in the VMs and Templates view.
    3. Right click a VM and select Edit settings.
    4. Adjust the CPU and Memory settings. Refer to the EMC ViPR Support Matrix for recommended CPU and memory sizes.
    Use identical settings for CPU and Memory on all ViPR Controller VMs.
  3. Power up the ViPR Controller VMs or vApp.
