You can manage computes resources by expanding the tree on the Compute Resources tab of the Resources page.
When you expand the tree down to the compute resource level, the following tabs display: General, Tenants, and Datastore Config.
This tab displays general information about the compute resource.
|Compute resource role||Description|
|Active||Compute resource that is actively hosting virtual desktops.|
|Reserved||Compute resource not used for provisioning desktops.|
|Standby||This role is a legacy feature and is no longer used.|
To edit the compute resource:
- Click Edit Compute Resource.
- Edit information as described in the following table.
Field Description Failover Hosts Number of hosts 100% reserved for disaster recovery. This value must be lower than the value for Hosts Detected. If multiple hosts are detected, the default value is
1. If a single host is detected, the default value is
Host Headroom Percent For the remaining hosts (those not designated as Failover Hosts), enter the percentage of capacity to reserve for disaster recovery. The default value is
- The value for Memory Available is equal to Memory Installed reduced by the percentage you enter for Host Headroom Percent.
- The value for CPUs Available is equal to CPUs Installed reduced by the percentage you enter for Host Headroom Percent.
Memory Over allocation Ratio This ratio determines the amount of virtual machine memory that the compute resource can allocate. For example, if the ratio is 4.0 and the memory capacity of the compute resource is 64 GB, then it supports up to 256 GB of virtual machine memory. The default value is
Virtual to Physical CPU Ratio This ratio determines the number of virtual machine CPUs that the compute resource can allocate. For example, if the ratio is 8.0 and the number of physical CPU cores on the compute resource is 8, then it supports up to 64 virtual machine CPU cores. The default value is
Usage Select one or more of the three options (Service, Tenant, Network).
- Select Service to install Service Provider and Resource Manager appliances on the cluster.
- Select Tenant to install Tenant and additional Desktop Manager appliances on the cluster.
- Select Network to install Network appliances like Unified Access Gateway and NSX Edge Gateway on the cluster.
- Click Save.
If this compute resource is shared, the Partitioned Compute Resource dialog box displays. In this dialog box, set partition sizes for Memory and CPU, and click Save.Note: You can later view and edit these settings on the Quotas tab when editing a tenant.
The Tenants tab lists the tenants using this compute resource.
This tab lists the datastores that are configured on this compute resource.
