Adjusting RAM and CPU

There may come a time when you need to update the RAM and CPU on your systems to free up resources, improve system performs better, or just planning for the future. Through CONS3RT it is very easy to quickly make these changes. There are likely three timeframes in which you might want to make these changes: during systems design, while launching, and after a deployment run is reserved. using CONS3RT and one way in development. These situations are described below.

  • System Designs - You can easily specify required RAM and CPU when creating your system design. It is the second step and can be done by using the sliding bar. Once your system is created, you can, at any time, go back and change the values again by choosing your system and by clicking "Edit Asset". CONS3RT reflects the changes in all scenarios and deployments that use the underlying system design.

System RAM/CPU

  • Launch Time - When launching a system/scenario/deployment values for RAM and CPU will default to those specified in your system design. You do have the option to edit those values on the second step (configure resources) of the launch process. If you edit the values during the launch process they will only impact the RAM and CPU on the deployed system. They will NOT impact the values on the underlying system design.


  • Deployed Systems - You can change the RAM and CPU on a deployment run that is in the reserved state. Click on the Run page, then click on the host that you would like to resize. Click "Resize" and adjust to the required values. NOTE: Upon saving the new configuration your system will automatically reboot to pick up the changes.
