Allocating VM CPUs for Cisco CSR1000V
Use this task to allocate CPU resources when setting up a Cisco Cloud Services Router CSR1000V as a host for the SD-AVC network service.
Before you begin
On the VMware ESXi hypervisor client that is hosting the Cisco CSR, edit the CSR that is hosting the SD-AVC network service. Allocate 8 CPUs to the virtual machine. (For small-scale scenarios, fewer CPUs may be necessary. See System Requirements: SD-AVC Network Service Host.
On the CSR device, execute the following:
Copy the running configuration to the starting configuration.
Reload the device.
Use show platform software cpu alloc to check the number of CPU cores allocated.
Check the command output for the Control plane cpu alloc line. The output indicates 4 CPUs (numbered 0 to 3).
