Add a CPU Core to an EDA 1000v on Hyper-V

This guide explains how to add a CPU core to an ExtraHop virtual appliance that is running in a Hyper-V environment.

The ExtraHop Discover 1000v 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 a valid ExtraHop license before you can enable SSL decryption.
