Add a CPU Core to the EDA 1000v with VMware

This guide explains how to add a CPU core to an ExtraHop virtual sensor that is running in a VMware environment.

The EDA1000v requires a minimum of two processing cores with hyper-threading support. If you want to enable SSL decryption, we recommend that you add a third processing core to avoid performance degradation.

Note:You must have an ExtraHop license before you can enable SSL decryption.
  1. Log in to the Administration settings on the ExtraHop system through https://<extrahop-hostname-or-IP-address>/admin.
  2. In the Appliance Settings section, click Shutdown or Restart.
  3. In the System row, click Shutdown.
    Note:You must save or revert changes to the running config file before shutting down or restarting the system.
  4. Log in to the VMware vSphere client.
  5. In the left panel, select the ExtraHop VM.
  6. Click the Summary tab and then click Edit Settings.
  7. In the Virtual Machine Properties window, click CPUs.
  8. From the Number of virtual sockets drop-down list, select 3.
  9. Click OK.
  10. On the Summary tab, under the Commands section, click Power On.
