Description Enable use of more than one CPU for control processing.
Syntax multi-ctrl-cpu num
Replace num with the number of CPUs to use for control processing. Up to one fourth of the device’s CPUs can be used for control processing.
Default One CPU is used for control processing.
Mode Global configuration level
Usage A reboot is required to place this command into effect.
This command is required if you plan to enable use of multiple CPUs for health-check processing.
NOTE: There is no “no” form of this command. To disable multiple CPUs for control processing and restore it back to default, simply configure multi-ctrl-cpu 1.
Example The following commands display the number of CPUs (cores) the device being managed contains, and enable use of multiple CPUs for control processing.
AX Series Advanced Traffic Manager AX2500
Serial No : AX2505abcdefghij
CPU : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU
Storage : Single 74G drive
Memory : Total System Memory 6122 Mbyte, Free Memory 1275 Mbyte
SMBIOS : Build Version: 080015
Release Date: 02/01/2010
SSL Cards : 5 device(s) present
5 Nitrox PX
GZIP : 0 compression device(s) present
FPGA : 0 instance(s) present
L2/3 ASIC : 0 device(s) present
Ports : 12
The first attempt does not succeed because the number of CPUs requested (3) was more than the number available for control processing on this device.
The number of control CPUs should be less than a quarter of the total number of CPUs
The next attempt succeeds. The number of CPUs requested (2) is one-fourth of the total number of CPUs on the device, which is the maximum that can be allocated to control processing.
This will modify your boot profile for multiple control CPUs.
It will take effect after the next reboot.
Please confirm: You want to configure multiple control CPUs (N/Y)?:Y
