It is good to know that NSX-T Edge Node has multiple performance profiles. Those profiles will change the # of vCPU for DPDK and so leave more or less vCPU for other services such as LB:
- default (best for L2/L3 traffic)
- LB TCP (best for L4 traffic)
- LB HTTP (best for HTTP traffic)
- LB HTTPS (best for HTTPS traffic)
Now you can ask how to choose Load Balancer Performance profile. SSH to the edge node and use CLI.
nsx-edgebm3> set load-balancer perf-profile http Performance profile type argument https Performance profile type argument l4 Performance profile type argument Note: You may be prompted to restart the dataplane or reboot the Edge Node if there are changes in the profile in # of cores used by LB. To go back to default profile: nsx-edgebm3> clear load-balancer perf-profile
