Edit Virtual Server

You can edit CPU and RAM resources for all VSs. Depending on the OS it is built on, some VSs can have their CPU and RAM resized without needing to be powered off ("resize without reboot").

Windows virtual servers cannot be resized without a reboot.

To adjust VS CPU & RAM resources:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > Cloud > Virtual Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the server you want to resize, to show its details screen.
  3. Click the Actions button, point to Options, and select the Edit VS link.
  4. Change CPU core/priority and RAM values. You can also edit the Time Zone parameter for all Windows KVM virtual servers.

    For VSs based on KVM Compute resources only, providing the Enable CPU topology permission is switched on for the user:

      • Change the number of CPU sockets.

    Setting the correct amount of CPU sockets

      • Set the total amount of virtualized CPUs and the number of sockets.
      • The value of cores_per_socket will be calculated automatically by the formula vCPUs  = cpu_sockets x cores_per_socket.
      • Thus, if you set the vCPU value 8, and the CPU sockets 2, this means that the cores_per_socket value will be set 4.

    After you edit the server's time zone, you need to stop and then start up the VS.

    Currently, the time zone is set at the Compute resource side only. Therefore, users need to set the target time zone inside a Windows VS manually. Setting correct time zone at the Compute resource side helps to keep the correct time inside a VS after starting it if time synchronization is not completed for some reason.

    After changing VS resources you can see two prices per this VS per hour, depending on VS power status (on/off).

    Please pay attention that when you resize a VS, the price is changed, and the new price is not applied immediately. It takes about 5 minutes to take effect.

  5.  –°lick the Save button.

If the VS template allows resizing without reboot, the resize should be completed automatically: you will be returned to the VS details screen and see a message indicating the resize was successful. If the template does not allow this, you will be asked to confirm that the VS will need rebooting so that the resize can take place.
