Enable Burst Resources

Enable Bursting

In reserved compute pools, resource bursting allows a compute pool to expand demand beyond purchased resources using a separate, designated pool of host resources. To utilize bursting, the compute pool must be configured for bursting; contact your service delivery manager if you are unsure of the burst configuration for any compute pool. In a compute pool configured for bursting, you can enable bursting for processor or memory from Infinicenter Console.

In instance-based compute pools, bursting is not needed and is not available. To maintain performance, IBM monitors your virtual machine placement and resources needed.

You can enable processor or memory bursting in any compute pool for which bursting is configured. You can enable bursting from either All Compute Pools tab or from a specific compute pool tab.

Enable Bursting from All Compute Pools Tab

Note: If enable burst button is gray and the tooltip does not appear, not configured, resource bursting is not enabled for the selected compute pool. Contact your service delivery manager.

  1. Click All Compute Pools.
  2. Click Reserved compute pools.
  3. Click the bursting icon, not configured.
  4. The Confirmation dialog appears.

  5. Click OK.

Enable Bursting from a Specific Compute Pool Tab

Note: If enable burst button is dim, not configured, resource bursting is not enabled for the selected compute pool. Contact your service delivery manager.

  1. Select a reserved compute pool.
  2. Click Summary.
  3. Click Enable Burst, not configured.
  4. The Confirmation dialog appears.

  5. Click OK.
