Configure VMware overallocation percentages

To use cluster resources more effectively, you can configure overallocation percentages greater than 100% for cluster CPUs and cluster memory provisioning if your organization finds that the actual usage allocation figures from VMware are significantly overstated.

Before you begin

Role required: cloud_admin, vmware_operator


  1. Navigate to VMware Cloud > Administration > Properties.
  2. Configure the values for Overallocation percentage for VMware cluster CPUs and Overallocation percentage for VMware cluster memory. The default values are 100%.
