You create a resource pools for NSX-T Edge node pair and for tenant workloads in the cluster of the NSX-T workload domain in VMware Cloud Foundation.

Allocate more CPU and memory resources to the resource pool for the NSX-T Edge appliances. The edge nodes provide dynamic routing to the tenant workloads in the workload domain. During contention, the edge nodes must receive enough resources so that network traffic is not interrupted.
