The Set CPU Resources for VM action is used to modify the CPU reservation and CPU limit on virtual machines. You modify the CPU reservation and limit to manage workload demands in your environment.
How the Action Works
The Set CPU Resources for VM action determines how CPU resources can be allocated to the virtual machines. The reservation limit is the minimum amount of guaranteed CPU resources allocated to the virtual machine. The limit is the maximum amount of CPU resources that the virtual machine can consume.
To run the action, all options where you configure a value must contain a value for the objects that you want to change. If you are changing one option to a new value, but not another option, ensure that the option that you are not changing is configure with the current value.

Name of the virtual machine as it appears in the environment inventory.
|New Resv (MHz)||
Amount of CPU resources in megahertz reserved for the virtual machine when the action is finished. The new reservation value must be less than or equal to the new limit value unless your new limit is unlimited (-1).
The reservation supports the following possible values:
|Current Resv (MHz)||
Amount of CPU resources that is configured as the guaranteed CPU resources for the virtual machine.
|New Limit (MHz)||
Maximum amount of CPU consumption in megahertz that the virtual machine can consume when the action is completed.
The limit supports the following possible values:
|Current Limit (MHz)||
Maximum amount of CPU that the virtual machine can consume.
