CPU oversubscription

For CPU oversubscription, a subscription factor of three (3), or subscription percent of 300%, or below generally works for a range of workloads.

Whether you can go above 3 is workload dependent. For example, simple HTTP server workloads may be able to run with subscription factors as high as 10 (1,000%). We recommend you test your workload for a minimum of a week, under production level conditions, to determine the best subscription factor for your workload.
