• CPU 14 isolated, yet in use


    I have 6 cores isolate to a windows vm, at the time of writing the vm is offline, but cpu 14 is seeing about 8-10% utilization.


    Pinned cores: 2,14 - 6,18 - 10,22

    Isolating a CPU core means unRAID doesn't touch it. This is done by appending "isolcpus="x,y,z" to your syslinux config on Flash > Main.


    If you want to fully isolate the cores so that only the VM uses them, then you'll need to change your syslinux config from this:



    To this (for example):
