Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit TURBO-I-316 For HA workloads (consistent resize), allow Match Cores.

Allow CPUs to be resized based on core count (vs MHz) for Consistent Resize Merged

Currently, consistent resize for HA pairs only recommends adjustment based on MHz. We have vms that are on different hardware, resulting in different recommendations for core count. We have internal requirements for our vms in the same HA group to be the same core count based on how it does processing.

    Thanks for the Idea.

    We'll give this some consideration as part of the DR aware resource management initiative and will circle back if needed to gather more detailed requirements nearer the time.

    It is a fairly common scenario where companies will have business process to ensure consistent config management for their HA/load balanced solutions. It's also fairly common for business process to stagger lease schedules/purchases for primary and secondary sites, to rack and stack hardware at different times. This introduces a potential for different core counts of VMs on the older hardware, for at least the period between tech refresh cycles. Customers in this scenario who cannot accept the differing configs, will essentially exclude the workloads from the rightsizing use case. It is these VMs that require a higher level of availability that are typically the most critical workloads in a customer environment. Excluding critical workloads from Turbonomic sizing recommendations greatly lowers the potential value they can realize from the product.
