Re: hpvm 4.1

Yes.

HP Integrity Virtual Machines B.04.10 is supported on HP Integrity servers or nPartitions running HP-UX 11i v3 (April 2009 0903 or later). When you upgrade or reinstall Integrity VM, guests are stopped, but they are not removed. When the new version of Integrity VM starts, the virtual machines might also start, depending on the setting of the guest boot attribute

Re: hpvm 4.1

You need VSE operating environment to use HPVM.

Re: hpvm 4.1

IIRC the maximum CPU number of a guest is currently 8.

Hope this helps!

Re: hpvm 4.1

So It's like I can have 5 cores & max 8 vcpu's.... Am I correct

Also how to use a nic card to on the vm

Re: hpvm 4.1

You must have at least the same number of physical cores and physical CPUs.

You cannot have less physical than virtual.

Hope this helps!

Re: hpvm 4.1

this contradits the above statement..

However, Integrity VM allows you to create a virtual machine with more vCPUs than the number
of physical CPUs on the VM Host system. Warning messages are displayed if there are not
enough physical CPUs to run the virtual machine. This feature allows you to create virtual
machines for future configurations. However, the virtual machine is not allowed to start on a
VM Host system that does not have enough physical CPUs.

Re: hpvm 4.1

"this contradicts the above statement.."

No, this confirms the above statement.


If you have less physical than virtual assigned, the guest can't start.


Hope this helps!

Re: hpvm 4.1

If I give 10% entitlement to each vcpu... then I can have 10 vcpu's per a pcpu..

Am I correct

Re: hpvm 4.1

Shalom,

Answer to our question:

You can run 11.23 guests
Windows Guests
Linux guests.

Your problem is lack of memory.

Re: hpvm 4.1

From manual:

The minimum and maximum values are boundary values, which are enforced if the number of
virtual CPUs this virtualmachines changes in the future. The default value is one (1) virtual CPU
for the virtual machine. The number of virtual CPUs should not be set higher than physical
number of CPUs on the host, as this can cause undesirable behavior.
The default minimum and maximum boundary values are a minimum of one (1) virtual CPU,
and a maximum of eight (8) virtual CPUs.


1<= virtual CPU <= 8

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: hpvm 4.1

I have total 10 physical cores in the VM Host

My requirement is 5 physical cores and 10 vcpu's per VM Guest .

1. Is this possible
2. If not how to achive this

Re: hpvm 4.1

>> My requirement is 5 physical cores and 10 vcpu's per VM Guest .


1. How many vcpus can i assign to each guest with 5 pcpu's

In Table 3-3 Configuration Limits the second point...

# vCPUs/pCPU â Maximum ---> 20

I am confused....
Torsten.
Acclaimed Contributor

Re: hpvm 4.1

IMHO this means a pCPU can do 20 vCPUs.

Hope this helps!

Re: hpvm 4.1

In that case when I have 5 physical cpu's .... can I not have 10 vcp's and if not how many max. can i have

Re: hpvm 4.1

yet again Grayh you sem determined to *not* read the manual yourself... do you have some kind of manual allergy? ;o)

If you really have 5 physical CPUs (cores) on your VM host, then any given VM guest on that VM host can have at most 5 vCPUs - it makes no sense for a VM guest to have more vCPUs than the VM host has pCPUs - after all, where would the host run the processes on those extra vCPUS?

Of course you can have more than one VM guest on the host and each VM guest can have up to 5 vCPUs ... you just have to do the math:

so you could have 2 x guests with 5 vCPUs and 50% entitlement

or 4 guests with 5 vCPUs and 25% entitlement

or 5 VM guests with 1 vCPU and 100% entitlement

or (the extreme and you probably don't have the memory for this) 100 VM guests with 1 CPU and 5% entitlement
