vSRX minimum requirements for memory and vCPU 18.4 releases

‎01-22-2020 05:18 AM

Hi,

vSRX 18.4r3 ova file has default 2 vCPU and 4G memory.

When I look in the the installation guide for vmware (installation guide) it says 9 vCPU and 16G memory.

So my questions are:

Is it the minimum requirement or is it that 18.4 support the new higher values?

If these are the minimum requirments, shouldn't the ova file have it set from the start?

 

Thanks Niklas

These are the newly introduced higher values.

You can still deploy a small flavour with 2 vCPU's.

Thanks for the answer.

As I understand it, I can increase memory / vCPU with out power off the vm, is that right?

HiNiklas,

 

 If I am getting this right, for your second question you have to power-off the vSRX

 

Upgrading a Multicore vSRX with VMware vSphere Web Client

You must power down the vSRX VM before you can update the vCPU and vRAM values for the VM.

To scale up the vSRX VM to a higher number of vCPUs or to an increased amount of vRAM:

  1. On VMware vSphere Web Client, Select Edit Settings to open the powered down vSRX VM to open the virtual machine details window.
  2. Select Memory and set the vRAM to the desired size.
  3. Select Processor and set the number of vCPUs. Click OK.
  4. Click Power On. The VM manager launches the vSRX VM with the new vCPU and vRAM settings.
