is cpu throttling enabled?

Posted November 17, 2014 2.5k views

I’m having trouble installing ATLAS, which requires cpu throttling disabled.

Do i have to do something special? or this is unlikely to work in a VM environment?

CPU throttling is not done by default, but can happen in some cases. The best way to find out for sure is to open a ticket directly with our Support staff!

They can quickly answer your questions regarding that. As for if it will run in a VM or not, this is hard to say. I’m not entirely sure what you mean by ATLAS. I did a quick google search and it appears to be a data analysis software suite. This shouldn’t be an issue, but you will want to ensure you have a droplet large enough to handle the requirements of the software.

It may not run on our smaller droplets due to it’s needs.

Is the throttling temporary if you’re using 100% for a couple of hours or permanent for the droplet? If not, how long does it take to reset the throttle? Is there any way to see the throttling status?
