Which step can be used to increase the performance of the critical virtual machine?

Several virtual machines residing in a resource pool are exhibiting poor performance, and a critical virtual machine in the pool appears hung. The resource pool has been allocated exactly 500MHz of CPU and does not have the Expandable Reservation option selected. The cluster in which the resource pool resides has a total of 6000MHz, with 1000MHz available.

Which step can be used to increase the performance of the critical virtual machine?

A.
Increase the CPU limit on the critical virtual machine.

B.
Increase the CPU reservations on the critical virtual machine.

C.
Increase the CPU reservations on the resource pool.

D.
Increase the CPU limit on the resource pool.

    There are 1000Mhz of CPU resources available, but the VM is not using it – hence, there is a limit that has been set on the VM. Either remove the limit or increase it.

  2. Ed says:

    If you increase the limit to the pool, but there are other VMs within the pool that have higher priority or need more resource, then the critical VM with small reservation will end up has small CPU to use. Increase reservation should guaranty that it does not happen.
