Best practices for deploying BIG-IP VE on VMware

When deploying BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) on a VMware host, you should follow these best practices.

Issue Recommendation
Resource reservations By default, BIG-IP VE is deployed with a 2 GHz CPU and 2 GB of memory reservation. Together, these reservations normally prevent system instability on heavily loaded hosts and are considered minimal. The CPU reservation can be up to 100 percent of the defined virtual machine hardware. For example, if the hypervisor has a 3 GHz core speed, the reservation of a virtual machine with two CPUs can be only 6 GHz or less.
