Disabling CPU pinning


Recommended Posts

Hello!, would it be possible to disable CPU pinning (selecting which thread should a VM have access to)?, I really don't want to do micro-management of which cores are used.

 

I just would like to say "this VM can use 2 vCPU/Threads". For a home/personal use, I really don't care which ones are being used.

To be honest, because I'm lazy, and micro-management for home workloads doesn't add any value (to me?). 

 

If there's a sudden spike of load, would you be shuffling VM/CPU assignment?, even worse if you cannot change configuration without shutting down a VM in unRAID.

 

It's really easy to get an unbalanced CPU consumption, and this is only with 6 VMs:
