VROPS – Overload CPU for a cluster

This post was originally published on this site



I can see in vROPS that one of my cluster has the following stats:


CPU cores = 252

vCPU allocated = 3181

Overload CPU = 12,62


My customer ask me to explain this value of overload CPU but I don’t really know what to say about it especialy when should I consider it becomes a warning for my cluster?

This one is clearly in CPU contention during the day.

I have another one that is not in CPU contention and has the following values:


CPU cores = 48

vCPU allocated = 192

Overload CPU = 4


Is is too simple to answer that above 10% overload, it is not good? I imagine that it is more complicated than that.


Thanks for helping.
