VM-series: CPU / processor instruction set requirements

L4 Transporter

Hi all,


We are looking into some strange CPU usage issues on the VM-series, where we see a really high CPU usage on the ESX side ~90-100%, and when we look on the PAN-OS side, we see an average for all MP+DP CPUs (4 vCPU) ~35% CPU usage.


We have met all VM-series requirements stated in the following document:



But were wondering, if the VM-series had any requirements to which kind of CPU models, or processor instratuction sets, that were needed to be presented from the ESX platform, towards the VM?


Running 7.0.4 or 7.0.8 and ESXi v6.0.
