Setting Memory for a VM

How to specify the amount of memory on a VM Config

Starting with Orka 2.1.0, it is possible to set the memory of a VM. When creating a VM config, you can now specify the amount of memory.

For the following example, please ensure your environment has already been updated to 2.1.0 and your cli version is at least 2.1.0.

// In your terminal, check your orka version
> orka version
  API Version: 2.1.0
  CLI Version: 2.1.0
  CLI download page:
// Create using CLI input or using --memory flag
orka vm create-config -v memory-example -c 3 -C 3 --memory 6 -y

// Deploy
orka vm deploy -v memory-example -y

Note: The deploy screen does not show memory or CPU.

To see that the correct amount of memory was used, open a screenshare. At the top left of the screen, click the Apple icon -> About This Mac, and then you should see the correct amount of memory - 6 GB in this example.


You should also see the correct amount of RAM reflected in orka vms or orka vm list
